It's pretty clear by now that Radiohead, Thom Yorke especially, don't like the streaming service Spotify. They've been very vocal about it, from pulling their music off of the service in July, then Thom Yorke calling Spotify "the last desperate fart of a dying corpse". You can read the rest of that interview here if you'd like to see exactly why he's so mad about it, but now Spotify's CEO has responded to that criticism via The Hollywood Reporter.

"This is the single biggest shift since the inception of recorded music, so it is naturally going to draw criticism and speculation. [Yorke] looks at this and says over a million streams gives me a few thousand dollars, and he says if I had a million downloads [which pay higher royalty rates], that would mean $1 million—so Spotify is not good. But the difference is, he would not have had a million downloads because they are not comparable. In fact, with 24 million users—and Apple has 500 million users—we already have billions of streams today."

And with that, I'd say the Thom Yorke vs. Spotify battle is officially done. Or at least, I'd hope so anyway.
