Music: Radiohead Site Struggles With Order Influx

Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead: guitar bow-ist and IT specialist...

Billboard reports that Radiohead's site has been struggling to handle the huge traffic spike that has come with the announcement that their new album would be only available there. Guitarist Jonny Greenwood wrote on the site: "...if you please bear with us, it should get cleared out soon... I sound like a bouncer. Get behind the rope. No denim. Thanks for your patience with the site + interest in the record." Billboard also has the somewhat ephemeral "Buzz 100" which purports to chart blog activity about a band. Obviously my "hot albums" chart has superior methodology. Either way, Billboard says that "blog activity" on Radiohead increased from 1% to 15% of postings. Ahead of them? High School Musical 2 and Kanye West. See my original post here.
