We can talk about America’s great orator, Charlie “There are a trillion places for a million things to hide” Sheen, later. Right now I would just like to give Liam Gallagher his due for being The Best. Why? Because in an interview with The Quietus he said:
“I heard that f*cking Radiohead record ['The King Of Limbs'] and I just go, ‘What?!’” he said. “I like to think that what we do, we do f*cking well. Them writing a song about a f*cking tree? Give me a f*cking break! A thousand year old tree? Go f*ck yourself!”
Wait, no, that’s not it. That’s good, but that’s not it. This is it:
Speaking of Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke’s decision to take influence from the tree in question, Gallagher added: “You’d have thought he’d have written a song about a modern tree or one that was planted last week. You know what I mean?”
A MODERN TREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is THE BEST reason to be mad at someone. Not writing a song about a modern tree. I love this man. He is my Sheen. Gallagher for Sheen!!!!!
No matter how you feel about Radiohead, you have to admit there is nothing that Thom Yorke can say to defend himself. Well, yeah, of course there is. There is no reason for him to write a song about a modern tree (hahahahahahaha) over a thousand year old tree. In fact, there are definitely more compelling reasons to write about an ancient tree than a modern tree (can’t get enough). But Gallagher wins. He just does. Modern Tree.
