Patrons of the Chipotle can enjoy tracks from a number of rock bands while they dine, but Radiohead isn’t one of them. The restaurant chain’s music programmer Christopher Golub says he’s banned Radiohead from his playlists. It's not because he dislikes the band's music: he feels their tracks don’t mesh well with Chipotle’s architecture.
“You know that if you go into a store, you’ve got the small, hard surfaces,” he tells Denver’s Westword . “You’ve got concrete floors, a lot of windows, hard walls and a lot of cooking gear and tile. So that doesn’t work with certain songs.”
Golub adds that the “high, tenuous yowl of Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke wreaks havoc with the steel and concrete of a Chipotle buildout.”
