Radiohead Has A New Ant Species Named After Them

First we had the Pink Floyd shrimp and now a Radiohead ANT?! Say hello to Sericomyrmex radioheadi. The Ant was discovered by Ana Ješovnik and Ted R. Schultz who work in the Smithsonian Institution’s Ant Lab in Washington, D.C. The two scientists said they “wanted to honor their music…but more importantly, we wanted to acknowledge the conservation efforts of the band members, especially in raising climate-change awareness.” My only question is, did it have to be an ant? Why not bad ass snake or a big scary spider!!!

The Chainsmokers Should Probably Get Spell Check

Saturday night the duo performed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at a SOLD OUT show and let’s just say…it got awkward. They closed out the show with this banner spelling Pittsburgh wrong. Is this real life right now? Wow. Just wow. 1 easy way to make Pittsburgh hate the Chainsmokers, forever. pic.twitter.com/WMxFejBc2l — Ashley (@shDell18) April 23, 2017 Well at least we got another chance this week in Clevlande https://t.co/YDUPkwUifc — THE CHAINSMOKERS (@TheChainsmokers) April 24, 2017
