Thom Yorke Travels to Copenhagen For Climate Summit

December 17, 2009 12:00 AM ET

Thom Yorke has frequently posted on Radiohead's Dead Air Space the past weeks about the Copenhagen Climate Summit going on now in Denmark. Not satisfied with simply bringing attention to the summit, the singer of Rolling Stone's Number One Album of the 2000s decided to make a surprise voyage over to Copenhagen to witness the talks himself. Watch above (via AtEase) as Yorke talks about his climate concerns and what his hopes for the summit are. Yorke is actually attending the summit with a press badge, so the above video represents one of those rare instances where reporters are interviewing a much more famous reporter, a member of the press who was recently named among RS' Artists of the Decade in our current issue. Yorke will also reportedly talk on the Age of Stupid Website at some point today.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
