The Radiohead song Prince doesn't want you to hear

One of the most talked about moments at this year’s Coachella (in addition to Roger Waters’ flying pig) was when Prince covered “Creep” by Radiohead. Fans posted videos on YouTube, but Prince’s people quickly took down the links by threat of legal action over copyright infringement. This is a little odd, considering Prince was performing someone else’s original song! Radiohead has commented that if anyone should be able to remove the clips, it would be them, and they want the posts to remain available because they themselves are some of the people curious to see the performance.

Anyhoo, the quality is that of a shaky camera-phone, but please to enjoy…
