Disgrace? I don't get it.
Gnarls is basically saying, 'Radiohead is fucking bad ass.'

Wow, Charles Barkley is my favorite NBA player. Cool to see him transition into Radiohead covers.

Don't get me wrong...I love reading your posts, and I'm not disrespecting you for posting this.

But I've always had these strong feelings against pop acts covering great songs.

I think that "Reckoner" is one of the most hauntingly beautiful songs written in the last 10 years, and I just don't like Gnarles Barkely getting their hands on it.

Keep up the good work.

No prob, no offense taken.. I'm a big fan of quoting melodies and cover songs.. I suppose you're not a Gnarls Barkley fan. Their last album was so-so, but I think they're making good, relevant music.. They bust out random covers (i.e., a Doors B-side at ACL fest 06 (I think)) paying tribute to bands.. It was a superb live set..
