Exactly. You know why I found the new versions of XYU were great? Because I felt like Billy was "living" the song again. Just like the band really interpreted Space Oddity just before.
Singing a song is not enough you have to experience it wether you are on stage or in the audience. I prefer someone singing a little out of tune but transcended by music rather than the contrary. That's what I look for at gig anyway.
Like Billy said:
I think people go to shows not to see hit songs. Iíll say it a thousand times. They go to see a fucking rock show. They want your cock out in some form or fashion.

Bill sounds mad like hell, man, he really should make an album now.
I'm sorry, every system up until the last ten, twelve years… it kicked its own door in. They didn't need it lubricated first. The Clash kicked the fucking door in. Nirvana kicked their own door in. The Cure kicked their own door in. Whatever, pick your fucking movement. Kick in your own fucking door. You don't need a guy with a fucking beard to put you over. Do it yourself.

Hell yes! Totally! :rofl:/>
Yep. And I really loved that line as well, just the day before the big streaming event (if this ever happens because I'm starting to think it is a joke).
"And when music is so goddamned fucking iTunes friendly cuddly, it makes me want to fucking puke."

funny meme though. just seems maybe a bit out of context, when referring to the actual quote.
but it's probably totally in context in some other context. lulz.

Ive always said only 50% of Radioheads fans actually like them, other 50% say they like them because they think they are supposed to and this somehow proves they have "good taste".

the week his new album comes out he makes a few comments about radiohead and dave grohl (two of the most popular amongst the press and mainstream) - Billy knows it will get a headlines and that any subsequent article will go on to mention 'oceania' being released
he's just playing the game
