Hackers stole unreleased Radiohead recordings and threatened to release them unless the band paid $150,000, so the band released the recordings instead

- Unreleased archived recordings from the era of Radiohead’s 1997 “OK Computer” album were stolen by hackers who threatened to release the recordings if the band didn’t pay a $150,000 ransom.
- Instead of paying the ransom, the band released the recordings, which are available for anyone to listen to and buy online.
- The proceeds from the recordings, which Radiohead is selling for £18 (about $23) on music platform Bandcamp for 18 days, are going to a climate change organization called Extinction Rebellion.
