The band Radiohead disappeared from the Internet, with the website and social media pages being removed. Go ahead, try to type radiohead.com into your browser search.

All posts on the band's Twitter and Facebook pages were deleted, and the band's website links to a blank page.

Along with the digital scrub, British fans reported receiving mysterious leaflets from the band that read: "Sing a song of sixpence that goes / Burn the Witch / We know where you live."

Veuer's Kevan Kenney has the story and possible explanations.
