RadioHead Makes a New Fan

I don't even know what kind of music Radiohead makes -- but this is the first time I've ever rooted for a specific business model:

The rock band, Radiohead, will be releasing their new album next week, but instead of finding it in record stores or on iTunes, it will be posted on the band's website. The best part is that you can pay whatever you want for it.

I like this idea a lot. Record labels currently made the bulk of a single album's selling price. Cutting them out of the picture means all the money goes to the band directly.

Here's one of Radiohead performing one of their most popular songs -- Paranoid Android:
