In a show of what campaigners called "unprecedented support" for the global climate action movement, British rock band Radiohead turned a ransom demand by hackers into an opportunity to support the growing Extinction Rebellion movement.

Instead of bowing to pressure from the hacker, the stars made a decision to drop all of the tunes on online music site Bandcamp, under the title Minidiscs (Hacked), and allow fans to purchase the whole package for themselves for $23, with profits benefiting the socio-political movement Extinction Rebellion.

Greenwood said Tuesday that instead of paying the $150,000 demanded by hackers, "we're releasing all 18 hours on (music-sharing site) Bandcamp in aid of Extinction Rebellion".

He noted that the recordings were "never intended for public consumption (though some clips did reach the cassette in the OK Computer reissue), it's only tangentially interesting". Greenwood says the recordings will only be available for the next 18 days. The album is "very, very long". So for £18 you can find out if we should have paid that ransom. Not a phone download.

The entire archive of tracks has a size of 1.8GB in size and, after purchase, Radiohead will get access to online streaming via the Bandcamp app and can also download them all in MP3, FLAC and more audio formats. Until we all get bored and move on'.
