Playing Radiohead's Headlining Coachella Performance Plagued With Technical Difficulties

Radiohead closed out night No. 1 of Coachella on Friday, but unfortunately, it was a major "Let Down."

The English rock band, who is no stranger to the Indio, California, music festival's main stage, experienced major technical difficulties, causing the rockers to stop their show at least four times.

It all started during the band's third number, "Ful Stop," from their latest album, A Moon Shaped Pool. Then, it was all downhill from there.

"Whoa. For a fourth time Radiohead's console has popped," Gerrick D. Kennedy, a music writer for the Los Angeles Times, tweeted from the festival grounds. "I have never seen this sort of malfunction from a main stage act."

Doomed by disaster after disaster, frontman Thom Yorke jokingly blamed it on "the f**king aliens again!"

"Can you actually hear me?" he asked the crowd during another point of their set. "I'd like to tell a joke to lighten the mood. But we're Radiohead so f**k it."

An eyewitness tells ET "the audience was so confused and shocked," and many people "cleared out and left before Radiohead actually finished" the show.

Luckily, they were able to close out with some of their most popular hits, including "Creep."

A slew of festival goers (and viewers watching the live stream at home) took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the sound issues. See some of the best reactions below:
