Radiohead's Thom Yorke Vs Bruno Mars

(Radio.com) In a wide-ranging Rolling Stone interview regarding his new band Atoms for Peace, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke spoke out candidly on subjects including EDM, Amazon and a certain male pop crooner.

"Who the f**k is Bruno Mars?" Yorke said when discussing how Atoms for Peace's debut album, Amok, entered the Billboard 200 chart at No. 2 behind Mars' Unorthodox Jukebox this past February. He added, "Sorry. I'll get slandered now,"

"Bruno Mars had a special on Amazon. That's why," offered Yorke's Atoms for Peace bandmate Nigel Godrich, referring to Unorthodox Jukebox being sold for only $1.99 during Amok's week of release. At that point, Mars' album had been out for more than two months.

"Amazon f**ks with us every time," Yorke added. "They undercut us. So really, it was No. 1." more on this story
