One of my favorite Radiohead songs. It is pure musical brilliance! It goes from bright to dark, from happy to melancholic. This is only something a group like Radiohead could pull off. - Slipperyjack40

No Surprises as number 1.? That caught me off guard. Good song, but surely this one takes the cake every time!
Everything that Radiohead have to offer to the world, all rolled up into one epic mother of a song. And done flawlessly.

This is what radiohead is

2 Karma Police

I absolutely love the piano in this song. Adds more passion to the song

Great piano rock song, I agree with the position it is in.

Love it!

3 No Surprises

This song might not be their greatest, but the sense of melancholy nostalgia it creates is one of the best feelings on this planet.

Best Radiohead Song in my opinion. Great backing vocals towards the end. Very reminiscent of "Sunday Morning" by The Velvet Underground, only this one is more developed and perfected. The closest to a perfect song I can think of.

One of the most happy/ depressing type of songs ever.

One of the best songs of all time. I am a huge Radiohead fan (I've listened to every album) I think that this is their best.

4 Let Down

Airbag 3.5/5 A great way to open up the album. That intro with the sliding guitars and the moment when Selway comes in on those powerful drums takes you on a journey.

Paranoid Android 2.5/5 Often considered one of Radiohead's greatest songs, this six minu te. t hree section song just doesn't cut it for me, yet its still one of the best songs on this album.

Subterranean Homesick Alien 2/5 This atmospheric song is okay, but I don't see why other people like it.

Exit Music ( For a Film) 3/5 Chilling song with a peaceful acoustic opening that eventually builds up into a beautiful hard rocking crescendo.

Let Down 5/5 The best song on OK Computer, the most beautiful song on OK Computer, one of the most beautiful Radiohead songs ever, and my second favorite Radiohead song The choruses are some of the best in any Radiohead song, and that ending is perfection.

Karma Police 2/5 One of Radioheads most popular songs. I'm not one to enjoy mainstream music, but ...more

The most perfect song. Best lyric ever. Should be first, then No Surprises. I can't sleep without listening to this song. It's also a nice song to start your day. So even If disappointments come your way, you don't worry.

The most underrated song on this album, and in this list below at #10, electioneering, 2nd most underrated. How sad. I won't say this list should be totally reversed but that would be closer to my opinion. Obviously This list is subjective, but my feeling is that the top three songs here are a result of the 'radio' play time they got; they are the singles. I love PA, and KP, and NS is great also, but they are not the best songs on this album. And what about The Tourist, not even on this list... shame... - abcrgb

Chills me every time I hear it. Anything that can do that must have something special over other songs

5 Exit Music (For a Film)

Very quiet introduction, with a violent transition at 2:50 after a spacey gradation in between. Amazing title & lyrics.

€œPossibly the greatest song off ok computer. Lots think Thom wrote this but no I did. We are really one of the best bands and this is one of the best albums. If someone asked me at the right time if bohemian rhapsody or exit music is a better song I’d say what the heck in the world exit music is better. Haha that song is really overrated(smirk and quiet laugh)—Johnny Greenwood 102.9 Sirius XM 1998 interview

6 Airbag

Everything about this song is flawless, deserves to at least be in the top 5

Best opening song to an album ever.

Love that song so much!

8 Climbing Up the Walls

Love this song. one of the most underrated but the climax is spine tingling. Amazing

The lyrics, the synthesizer effects and that screaming at the end, they all help to make this not only a great song, but a very scary one too.

Grossly underrated. One of their best from any album, yet it's only 8th.

One of my favourite songs...

9 Subterranean Homesick Alien

Thought my favorite is exit music (for a film), this songs storytelling is superb, its rhythms are catchy, and there is no reason it should be this low on the list besides the fact that some great songs have to be lower when and album is perfect.

What the hell! This is the greatest song ever I sing this song at least once every day

I think it should be at least in the top 5 - Lord28

Best Radiohead song. Period. - Sanselephant

10 Electioneering

underated song, one of radioheads best. - beasthound

Really under-rated rock song! Love those riffs and the way it slows down and goes mad!

Not best song but shouldn't be 10th

Very underrated. Catchy and I love the cowbells

The Contenders

11 The Tourist

I'm shocked this isn't on here.

Listening to it right now. I agree that Paranoid Android is better, but come on. Please listen to The Tourist, Radiohead fans! It's worth it.

A very pretty waltz -like closing number for a landmark album. One of my favorites from Ok Computer.

No way this should be lower than electioneering so I voted for it

12 Creep

I thought it was a great idea to include this track from Nevermind into this album in 1969, just showing how deep Sublime really is

I think this is the defining song on OK Computer. Really good job also their best song on Kid A

Um What? This is from Pablo Honey what kind of Radiohead fans are you?

What moron thought this song was on Ok Computer?.

13 Fitter Happier

How is this not #1? It tells you everything you need to know about how to live a better life, with more purpose and joy? every time I start to worry whether or not society is just a complex system with the purpose of maximum, most efficient exploitation of the masses for the will of the top few, with the media a thick, heavy cobweb to turn people away from seeking the truth, and those who do find it are so alienated that they seem insane, I just listen to this song and realise I just need to work overtime more often at my 7-5 factory job.

It may not be the best, but I would never remove this song if I had the chance. It wouldn't be the Ok Computer we all know and love without it. - Slipperyjack40

CREEP is ahead of this

Is this a song? It sounds more like a story. - Userguy44

14 Man of War
15 Pop is Dead

"greatest song of all time and we are really proud to have created such an amazing song that will forever be remembered as our best song." Thom Yorke


16 Lift
