Radiohead are an English rock band from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, formed in 1985. The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).
How can Coldplay be better if they copied their style. For me Radiohead head been flawless with their albums with bad songs, so much better than Coldplay and muse. Although I still like those bands. Why is Nickleback in this list, they had been doing the same song for all their career.
Radiohead is by far the most critically acclaimed rock band of this century. Not to mention they are the most innovative popular rock band of the past 20 years. All these people like to tout how their bands are distinct and different but really the majority of these bands are just Generic pop. Kid A is actually innovative as one of the earlier electronic rock albums. Also In rainbows practically changed the way people thought about marketing music.
It really hurts to see bands such as linkin park at the top of the list when there is Radiohead. If you ever take the time to listen to Kid A, or in rainbows they will change your whole perception of good music. The raw emotion, beautifully written lyrics, and the blend of different genres really and truly set them apart from the rest. Surly Radiohead should be at the top of this list. In my opinion they should even be pinned as one of the greatest bands ever.
I am a professional classical musician, who happens to like many genres of Rock and Alt since The Beatles. Radiohead is a superlative band of 5 great musicians who collaborate to make some of the most affecting, current, thoughtful, gorgeous and experimental music of any band from any era. Each studio album makes its mark, but The Bends, OK Computer, and Kid A are and will continue to be classics that will stand next to any band's work.
Radiohead has to be one of the best and most creative rock bands of all time, not just the 2000s. Their songs are so intense emotionally and musically that after listening to them, I have been desensitized to all the childish unemotional songs that come out. They know how to be sad. To quote Dave Matthews "God, these guys have suffered, or they can fake it like nobody else."
Kid A is among the greatest albums of all time. - InsertNameHere
I have been laughing my ass out watching this list. Nickelback 7th. Seems some 10yr rock fan spammed the votes.
Radiohead is one of the best bands of all times without a shadow of doubt. And as far as the millennium is concerned, Radiohead should be number 1 according to me. Coldplay are good as well although their new album Mylo Xyloto sounds pop to me. Bands like Travis, Oasis, Keane, Kings of Leon, Kasabian, Incubus should follow up closely well. Really disappointed with the list.
When you discover Radiohead you'll find this is the best rock band. Fake plastic trees, street spirit, all I need, reckoner, lucky, separator, creep, there there, 2+2=5, idioteque, everything in its right place and the list goes on. Just sit back and relax with radiohead on after a tiresome day. Beat that!
I understand the dislike of Radiohead. Most people want a dreamy singer and happy songs about love and whatever. Radiohead is the band that is truthful, with an imperfect looking singer, beautiful songs about imperfection, and albums that truly brought me to tears. Almost as much as seeing nickelback on this list and Linkin Park at number one
I am truly disappointed with this list. Linkinpark, number 1? Nickelback (*gasp*) number 5? What a disappointment. Radiohead are amongst the greatest bands of all time (not even just my opinion), and they made whats ranked as the greatest album of the 2000's (Kid A). What are Radiohead doing at #42?
Why are they not number 1? Radiohead is one of the best ranked bands of all time. They came up with incredible albums, such as Kid A, In Rainbows, and one of the best rock albums of all time, OK Computer. They are deserving of the top spot no questions asked. The fact that all these other bands are above Radiohead just signifies that either the people here have never heard of them or are blinded by the mainstream rock of the recent years.
I've never got why everyone thought the 2000s was a crap decade for music. There are bands like Radiohead, The Arcade Fire, The White Stripes, Interpol, Wilco, Bloc Party... but just look at the top 10. Green Day, Linkin Park and Blink182. All those bands really suck.
So much ignorance on this page, it hurts. Linkin Park should be twenty or lower. Radiohead, Beck, Wilco & Arcade Fire should be way higher than every band in the top 10 with the exception of The White Stripes. And I like most of the bands on the top too.
A constantly changing musical journey that stays gorgeous, lyrics that speak to one as a human being, and so much depth it almost hurts. This is the best band of the 00's, as much as I love Jack White. Who knows? These guys may be the new Beatles.
Completely agree with the previous post. I can't believe they're rated so low especially as Thom Yorke is a Legend. His lyrics are genius compared to any other bands suggested above. In my opinion people just don't Listen anymore!
After seeing that radiohead was not on the top, I was desperately hoping they were not on the list. No music ranking list should have blink 182 and Radiohead next to each other. just listen to them and you know where they belong.
Radiohead are a unique band. And do not take that word lightly as they are creative geniuses that strive to experiment and yet end up having every one of their albums a graceful sounding masterpiece of rock.
Why they're not in the top 10 is beyond me. These guys are great musicians. I"m a huge Linkin Park fan, but there's something about Radiohead that makes them better than Linkin Park in my humble opinion.
Radiohead is diverse and brings something new to the table every album. They have spiritual depth most bands lack on this list and they play with real raw emotion not phony personas
Radiohead sucks so bad! How are they even on this list! Their songs are not deep, the lyrics sucks, and a five year old could make a better song by saying words and clapping their hands! I want to shoot myself every time I listen to their sorry excuse for music!
This is ridiculous. Linkin Park is bad, NICKELBACK is absolutely atrocious, and Radiohead are all the way down here? Radiohead is one of the greatest bands.
My Chemical Romance and Avenged Sevenfold above Radiohead? Have you all lost your minds? Radiohead is the definitive band of our generation, the Pink Floyd of the 21st Century.
While teenage girls commit suicide over Zayn leaving One Direction, I sit here and listen to Paranoid Android and laugh maniacally. - Duality
I think this band is so under rated because of the main stream music. But just like every other great band they will be remembered and always have a legacy
Lmfao simple plan above radio what a fat joke, radiohead should be top 10 no excuses, same with arcade fire this list is retarded
Simply out of the world... if the earth stops making music and people start listening to the stuff which is made before...RADIOHEAD would top the list...
