Radiohead and The Smiths. The Smiths and Radiohead. Legends and legends. Two great tastes that taste great together. Two bands crucial to the taste development of sensitive young lads and lasses, trying to cope with a criminally vulgar world. Thom Yorke has been a long time fan of The Smiths (because, duh, so is literally everybody), and last night at the Austin City Limits Festival, he favored us with a little snippet of The Smiths' sexiest, witchiest track, "How Soon is Now?" before breaking into Hail To The Thief hit, "2+2=5."

What a tease! Definitely not long enough to fully satisfy, so it's lucky that this isn't the first time Radiohead has covered The Smiths! You can watch their incredible cover of "The Headmaster Ritual" below... *stares out window, clasping a portrait of Oscar Wilde*
