Thom Yorke is banned, then unbanned, then bans himself

Thom Yorke. The man responsible for so much amazing music and so many stupendous dance moves. And, for a few days at least, the man who had some of his music banned from Chipotle.

Last week, NME & other outlets reported that the music of Radiohead was not on the menu at Chipotle Mexican Grill's 1400+ locations. Not true, according to this piece from Westword. Still, though, funny to think that someone would say 'The Bends' doesn't mix with the pintos.

Thom's stance on on the bean counters at Spotify, however, is anything but warm. He and producer Nigel Godrich have removed the entire Atoms For Peace catalog from Spotify, claiming "new artists you hear on Spotify will not get paid." Spotify responded to the criticism, defending themselves as being artist-friendly.

So, to recap: you CAN hear Radiohead at Chipotle (even if it's only 2 songs), and you CAN'T hear Atoms For Peace on Spotify.

But you can hear BOTH right here on RadioBDC. So there.
