Exit Music (For A Film): At The Movies With Radiohead

While they have notoriously barred the use of their songs in advertising campaigns and initially resisted selling their music on iTunes, Radiohead has been more than willing to lend their vast brooding catalog to filmmakers, exposing mainstream culture to what might have otherwise remained a marginally popular band.

At every concert we've attended someone in the crowd has shouted some variation of, "Hey! It's the song from that movie!", and we expect Saturday's Toyota Center performance will be no exception.

Rocks Off has listed a few of our favorites from the most often-cited examples below. And yes, we said favorites -- that means In Rainbows' "15 Step" in the closing credits of Twilight has purposefully been omitted. Ditto for "High and Dry" in I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry.
