Radiohead to get the USC marching band treatment at Grammys

February 5, 2009 | 12:45 pm

In addition to Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl and Kanye West, the Grammys will turn to another old favorite to perform in its annual awards gala: the USC marching band.

Look for the Trojans to appear with adventurous British rockers Radiohead on Sunday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. A Grammy spokeswoman declined to comment, but Pop & Hiss has faith in the tip, which comes from a knowledgeable insider.

However, Pop & Hiss does not know what song Radiohead will be performing, although someone named "Stevens Goes to USC" posted on the Rolling Stone website that the band will be performing its Grammy-nominated "House of Cards."

This won't be the first time the Trojans will have been showcased on the Grammy awards. Members of the Spirit of Troy performed with OutKast in 2004 for a rendition of "Hey Ya!" Watch it after the jump.
