Prince covers Radiohead @ Coachella

Radiohead wasn't able to play Coachella this year, so Prince did his own version of their first single, "Creep."

When one rock legend covers another, there's a fine line between one-upmanship and tribute, disrespect and validation. Prince is as cool as they come--surely you've all seen him upstaging Eric Clapton at the 2004 Rock Hall of Fame induction ceremony by shredding the heck out of Clapton's original solo on the Beatles' "While My Guitar Gently Weeps."

Creep? Couldn't say. Weirdo? For sure. Coachella, Prince

This weekend, he took a 15-year-old single by one of the biggest bands in the world--a song that the band distanced itself from and seldom plays anymore--and made it sound new again. Prince. Radiohead. "Creep." See the video on YouTube before it's pulled....
