Thom Yorke Quotes / Quotations

Quotation of Thom Yorke


At home I've got a very puerile, juvenile sense of humour.
Quotation of Thom Yorke


Coming from Britain, I was terrified of meeting all these other artists, because artists over there tend to fight with each other a lot, the premise being that there's not enough room for everybody.
Quotation of Thom Yorke


Generally speaking, if people are prepared to stick their heads above the power pit, like Zinn says, and absorb what's going on around them, it makes them think.
Quotation of Thom Yorke


I don't see it in terms of changing things, but rather using language and music as weapons for fighting a mainstream media which is predominately right wing, and loyal to the political framework and its corporate interests.
Quotation of Thom Yorke


I don't think young people are as demoralized as the media and government would like us to think. The obvious sign of that is how strong and how close personal connections are and how much people are able to build a life for themselves, despite all this stuff that's been thrown at them.
Quotation of Thom Yorke

Quotation of Thom Yorke


I think escape is sort of like coming to a show with ten thousand other people and responding to that moment. Sharing that moment - that's escape.
Quotation of Thom Yorke


I think maybe since there isn't a great deal of access to the mainstream media and people don't understand the language of mainstream media, if you put music out there with lyrics that are loosely political, people absorb some of it and spit it back out.
Quotation of Thom Yorke


I think no artist can claim to have any access to the truth, or an authentic version of an event. But obviously they have slightly better means at their disposal because they have their art to energize whatever it is they're trying to write about. They have music.
Quotation of Thom Yorke


I think sometimes all the charities are doing is mopping up the blood. It's a shame.
Quotation of Thom Yorke


I think the most important thing about music is the sense of escape.
Quotation of Thom Yorke


I think we're entering a very dangerous time. The West has set itself up, decided it's in charge, not for good intentions, not for the benefit of mankind.
Quotation of Thom Yorke


I wrote a lot of stuff quickly: pages and pages of notes that seemed pretty incoherent at first. Most of it was taken from the radio because -suddenly being a parent- I'd be confronted by the radio giving a news report every hour of the day.
Quotation of Thom Yorke


I've never believed that pop music is escapist trash. There's always a darkness in it, even amidst great pop music.
Quotation of Thom Yorke


If we got into a situation where people start burning our records, then bring it on. That's the whole point. The gloaming has begun. We're in the darkness. This has happened before. Go read some history.
Quotation of Thom Yorke


It is difficult to make political art work.
Quotation of Thom Yorke


It's God's will that millions of people are gonna die this year because of some outmoded economic policies? No, it's not!
Quotation of Thom Yorke


Music is more difficult - try naming a political band. The Dead Kennedys. The Dead Kennedys are political, but they are more funny than they are political.
Quotation of Thom Yorke


My argument would be that I don't think there is much that's genuinely political art that is good art.
Quotation of Thom Yorke

Quotation of Thom Yorke


One of the interesting things here is that the people who should be shaping the future are politicians. But the political framework itself is so dead and closed that people look to other sources, like artists, because art and music allow people a certain freedom.
Quotation of Thom Yorke


So ultimately, it's idealistic to think that artists are able to step away from the power of the media and the way it controls things, and go on doing their own things.
Quotation of Thom Yorke


Someone needs to tell the truth, but it shouldn't be my job.
Quotation of Thom Yorke


The people in charge, globally, are maniacs. They are maniacs, and unless we do something about it these people are going to deprive us of a future.
Quotation of Thom Yorke


The problem is, I cannot meditate. That's the one thing I can't do. That's the thing that's driving me nuts. I have a house by the sea, and I can sit and listen to the sound of the sea and eventually . . . but I can't really do it.
Quotation of Thom Yorke


This was something that was obsessing me and creating a writer's block. To get involved and get stuck in, get the proper information about what's going on has really helped.
Quotation of Thom Yorke

Quotation of Thom Yorke


Well, I've been reading a lot about the fifty years since the Second World War, about Western foreign policy and all that. I try not to let it get to me, but sometimes I just think that there's no hope.
Quotation of Thom Yorke
