Watch This Amazing Triple-Cut of Radiohead Playing "Karma Police" in 1997, 2003 and 2017

Fresh off the release of OKNOTOK, a two-disc reissue of their ‘90s-winning, art-rock landmark OK Computer, Radiohead headlined the Glastonbury Festival this past week, closing out the Pyramid Stage with songs stretching back over their 25-year career. As usual, they played a stirring version of OK Computer standout “Karma Police.”

One fan had the brilliant idea to splice together three Glastonbury versions of the song, spanning 20 years, into a single video, toggling back and forth between performances from 1997, 2003 and last week. The result is pretty amazing—not least for the fact that the band is still playing “Karma Police” in the same key all these years later. Watch the video below.
