Leaked Radiohead Song: 'Putting Ketchup in the Fridge' is Fake
New Radiohead Song 'Putting Ketchup in the Fridge' is a Hoax
Music mags are reporting on an alleged 90's-era Radiohead track that has hit the web. The song, called "Putting Ketchup in the Fridge". By reading the reports of the "leaked Radiohead song", you can tell that Radiohead fans are eager to share the news, but are also hedging their bets in case the song is fake.
Listen to "Putting Ketchup in the Fridge" in the player below, but be sure to keep your BS-detector switched on.
"Putting Ketchup in the Fridge," as the latest track is purportedly titled, puts a soaring, Thom Yorke-like vocal over shuffling drums, languidly elegant guitars, and an anthemic bass line. As Radiohead fan blog At Ease points out, a pretty good comparison is "How Can You Be Sure?", a killer B-side from 1995's hugely influential The Bends. There's even a similar question-as-chorus: "How do you sit still?"
'Putting Ketchup in the Fridge' is Not a Radiohead Song
This is not really a Radiohead song. We're sure that this is a hoax.
The leak was first announced on 4chan, and the name of the supposed Radiohead song references a 4chan meme: the George Costanza Reaction Face. Also, are we expected to believe that someone got hold of an unreleased The Bends-era Radiohead track, and just sat on it for two years? Why?
Will Radiohead hoaxes become a new trend?
