Radiohead Hid a Secret Computer Code on Their 'OKNOTOK' Cassette
Published Jul 13, 2017Though Radiohead named their reissue OKNOTOK, the band really want you to know just how OK they are with computers. That explains why they hid an obscure computer message on the cassette edition of the album.
As Arts Technica has revealed, the box set included a cassette tape that featured plenty of nonsensical computer tones. As some Radiohead mega-fans figured out, those tones were actually codes for the 8-bit ZX Spectrum computer.
When fed into that obscure piece of outdated technology, the code unveils some colourful pixels, as well as a message from the group that reads, "With all our love."
