Lana Del Rey Fans Are Pissed About the Radiohead Lawsuit
And they're throwing a #RadioheadIsOverParty
Her fans coined the hashtag #RadioheadIsOverParty and have been having a field day on Twitter attempting to take down the British rock band.
As BuzzFeed points out, they've also infiltrated the comment sections on Radiohead's official Facebook and Instagram pages.
See some of the enthusiastic fan response below.

Everyone that's going to the Denver show tonight, chant FUCK RADIOHEAD then later if she asks for a song request chant GET FREE #RadioheadIsOverParty— Sol // 33 days till Lana❣️ (@Pierce_delrey) January 7, 2018
Of course, some Radiohead fans have been brave enough to engage the Lana stans online.
Some people actually have the audacity to belittle radiohead over the whole lana del ray conflict and use the #radioheadisoverparty. Go scream "yas queen" all you want, but to actually think that lana is bigger than radiohead is just delusional.— Nadya (@nadyarizf) January 8, 2018

Had a good laugh on #RadioheadIsOverParty hashtag. Pathetic. Calling one of the most influential bands of all time with - even after all these years - strong fanbase while also selling lots of records and concert seats each year irrelevant is just wrong. This just shows
Amidst an actual call of "Fuck Radiohead," Del Rey addressed the controversy onstage at her show in Denver last night (January 7), telling the audience that regardless of what happens in court, she remains a believer in the sentiment of the song — even if it gets taken down online and removed from future physical releases of the record.

During the performance in Denver, Del Rey also altered the lyrics to "Pretty When You Cry," seemingly directing the song at Radiohead. She sang: "I don't really mind it / I've got much more than that / Like my copyrights / I don't need that."

As previously reported, Del Rey offered Radiohead 40 percent of the publishing rights to "Get Free," but the band are apparently insisting on 100 percent ownership.
Radiohead, however, aren't entirely innocent when it comes to plagiarism lawsuits. Ironically enough, they were sued for lifting parts of "Creep" from the Hollies' 1972 song "The Air That I Breathe."
Lana Del Rey's Lust for Life is available on vinyl, cassette, CD and digital download through Umusic.
