Conan O’Brien covers Radiohead’s “Creep”

Conan O'BrienRadiohead and Conan O’Brien have always had a connection. If you didn’t know, Radiohead was the very first musical guest on Conan’s show back in 1993, which was also the band’s first TV appearance in the US. So, it’s no surprise to hear that Conan covered “Creep” during his soundcheck in Eugene, Oregon. Conan’s currently touring his comedy show, The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour.

Here you go:

Here’s Radiohead’s performance on Conan back in 1993:

UPDATE: Actually, we should correct ourselves. Radiohead’s first televised US appearance was on the Arsenio Hall show, a few months before the Conan show. Check it:

This performance was their first ever on US television and you’ll get to see Thom with his long blond hair so you may want to send the kids to another room if they get frightened easily. Hehe…
