Earlier this week, Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan told Antiquiet┬áthat he and “Weird” Al Yankovic are the only valiant knights of authentic rock, while bands like Radiohead are elevated due to an ingrained pomposity. In more specific terms, he mentioned pissing on Radiohead.

Since this revelation, we’ve been pondering Thom Yorke, Corgan and their respective bands every day since. Is Radiohead pompous? Should we be more indebted to “Weird” Al than Thom Yorke? Is Billy Corgan valiant? To help explain these burning questions, here’s 10 GIFs showing Corgan and Yorke engaging in parallel activities. It’s clear to the naked eye who’s more pompous in each one.
