Green Day And Radiohead Row Over Loud Volume
Radiohead drummer Phil Selway reacted in fury when he was kept awake by a loud party held by Green Day - but was locked inside his hotel room by the Basket Case stars as a result.
The dispute was sparked when Green Day partied into the night at Los Angeles’ infamous Chateau Marmont hotel, forcing tired Selway - who was trying to sleep in a nearby room - to knock on the door and beg Tre Cool to turn down the noise.
In response to the request, Cool turned off the music, but blasted out a different album moments later - Radiohead’s “Ok Computer.” And in a further act of mischief, Cool tied a rope around Selway’s door - keeping him trapped inside.
Cool says, “(Selway said), ‘You let me out you f**ker! I’m telling Thom (Yorke, Radiohead frontman).’
"(I said), ‘Dude, if you walk into a room of hot chicks and they’re blasting out you’re album, you’re like, What up? Right?’"
