The Quietus knows that Radiohead released a song called 'We Suck Young Blood', but this is still a little hard to swallow. Singer Thom Yorke is apparently "interested" in appearing on the sequel to vampire teen-flick Twilight, according to its director Chris Weitz.

He told Rotten Tomatoes: "I am surprised at some of the bands that have said they're interested. It's kind of great. The criterion will still always be what's right for the movie at that given moment, but Thom Yorke is interested; we might, if we're very lucky, get Kings of Leon to do something … it's exciting to be able to have access to this kind of talent."

Furthermore, Radiohead did appear on the twilight to the first Twilight film, after their song '15 Step' was played over the movie's end credits. So could Thom seriously be considering writing an original killer tune for the sequel...?
