Radiohead and Alec Baldwin on SNL

Radiohead infused SNL's thirty-sixth season premiere with a dose of high energy and invigorating dance moves. Check out the band's performance of King of Limbs' spacey jam, "Lotus Flower."  Not only does it highlight Thom Yorke's stellar maraca playing (one of his many talents), but also his ability to enter a trance-like state and flail his body. With all the kicks and spasms at the 2:30 mark, it's likely he went to the same dance school as Elaine from Seinfeld.

Later on the band also played "Staircase." The only way they could be improved is if host Alec Baldwin joined in on the electro-rock action. Check out both performances below and spasm along.
