Radiohead sneaks into The Top 40

The guys in Radiohead sure are some sneaky, cheeky, non-traditional music sellin' dudes. Take the song "Nude," the band's biggest hit single since "Creep," currently resting at No. 37 on the Billboard Hot 100. The success of the song is due largely to its wacky release format, which includes five "stems" that fans can turn into their own remixes. So, while the complete song has sold 13,000 copies on iTunes, culmulative sales of the song and stems is just under 60,000, putting Radiohead in the class of Mariah, Rihanna, and T-Pain. Congrats, boys! You finally made it!
