Radiohead’s unreleased OK Computer audio was stolen. Now the band is letting everyone hear it.

Allegra Frank reports:

When music pirates go low, Radiohead goes high. After a hacker stole 18 hours’ worth of unreleased music that the band recorded during the late ’90s, one of its peak creative periods, Radiohead didn’t fight to keep the tracks out of the public ear. Instead, the band made the stolen tunes available to purchase online, with proceeds going to charity.

What a classy response.
