Top Ten Most Overrated Radiohead Songs


The Top Ten

1 Creep

Radiohead have no overrated songs; (except for Creep) only underrated songs - Damian69

Yorke hates this track, I don't blame him. I hate how people only know radiohead for creep.

How is this "more heartfelt" than Paranoid Android?

Yeah this is their most overrated. Everyone knows Radiohead for this song. which is just so unrepresentative. I don't think a single song can represent them with all their musical diversity, but if their is, it certainly isn't this one.

2 Idioteque

People regard Idioteque as the best song from Kid A since it truly does feel as the one the best represents the album in its essence. The things is, In Limbo does a terrific job of introducing Idioteque, while Morning Bells is the perfect continuation. The three song, when heard together, make for a 13 minute long, surreal out-of-body experience.

Idioteque tends to get most of the applauds though, since it stands out a little more than the other two songs.

I'll stress again though, it is a brilliant song, just not as great as everyone makes out to be.

Look, this is a great song, but I feel like it gets too much credit. Not nearly overrated as Creep though

Really boring and repetitive

Seriously, what is so great about idioteque?! It's just a constantly repeating drum-machine beat to some electronic crap. There are much better radiohead songs that this. I don't get why this one gets so much credit.

3 Paranoid Android

Stop downvoting people expressing their opinion please. I find this song overrated. Here's why. Radiohead is a fantastic groundbreaking band that has made songs like No Surprises, Karma Police, and Fake Plastic Trees. Paranoid Android is great by all means. Overrated does not be bad, it doesn't even mean not great... It just means people give it a bit too much praise. I know many people think this is the greatest song ever, and I just have to disagree. I love the song, but I'm sorry. I have to vote for it.

It also shouldn't be number one on the best Radiohead songs. PARANOID ANDROID IS AMAZING, but there are better songs like: How To Disappear Completely, Motion Picture Soundtrack, Climbing Up The Walls, Sail To The Moon, etc... - swagmaster97

It's good, but it pales in comparison to songs like Karma Police and Street Spirit - ZeekStinkBreath

This is highly overrated. Creep is a great track and is very heartfelt. I don't understand Paranoid Android one bit

4 Street Spirit (Fade Out)
5 Karma Police

So much bette stuff on OK Computer like: Airbag, Exit Music, No Suprises, Paranoid Android even Climbing Up The Walls

This is the song people mention And hear when they don't know Radiohead.

6 High and Dry

It's not that it's a bad song, it's just that I got sick of it within ten of fifteen listens.

7 Lotus Flower

The king of limbs is the worst thing Radiohead ever did or ever will do. Absolute garbage album compared to every other Radiohead album.

One of the very few boring songs from Radiohead.

The whole album was meh for me including this song. Not bad, but not great.

8 Just
9 No Surprises

A shameless tearjerker. Song is trying SO hard to sound sad that it's difficult to take it seriously.

10 Fake Plastic Trees

It's lyrics are good, but they deserve a better song to accompany them

What the hell? This is one of their best

The Contenders

11 A Wolf at the Door
12 All I Need
13 How to Disappear Completely
14 Let Down
15 Everything in Its Right Place

This should be no. 2 up there with Creep. Seriously, this song is good and all but it isn't great. This is one of their only songs where I felt it could have been better.

Ikr. Like other comment said. Why is it all the praise of this song? Its good, its re-listenable even. But its not a "redeeming song" in Radiohead's career. Or the "perfect" opener as many refer to it. Its good, but its overrated to the point that is obnoxious to listen all that Kid A lovers overhyping this song..

It isn't bad, I just don't think it's "! HOW CAN A SONG BE SO GOOD?!?! " like everyone does.

16 Pyramid Song

Not that great good but not as good as everyone has made it out to be, but still a good song, just overrated

18 Nude
19 There There (The Boney King of Nowhere)
20 Climbing Up the Walls
