Rumor has it that Radiohead will be performing for the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators who are camping out in Lower Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park.

The band is in town for a few performances, and their progressive politics are certainly on the record (pun intended). In recent weeks, the band has also lent quiet support to those protesting the Keystone XL pipeline.

Update — rumor shot down:

Well that’s unfortunate, but you can still enjoy this video of the band performing Electioneering in 1996.
