Worst Radiohead Songs


The Top Ten

1 Pulk / Pull Revolving Doors

At the first time I listen this song, I don't like it. But now, this song is the reason to listen amnesiac album. This song isn't that bad.

This one is actually pretty cool - mtndewlord

Most pretentious song title. Ever.

2 House of Cards

I completely disagree. This song is full of emotion, and glory. So sad to see that it's number 1.

This song shouldn't be here. I realize this one was slow but come on, we all loved "Nude", so why can't this be just as appreciated.

This song isn't bad at all, doesn't deserve to be this high or even on it at all - Jiorl

Brings down an otherwise perfect album, so terrible and slow, no change in pace or... Anything.

3 Pop is Dead

None of these songs are that bad, personally,I'm yet to find a "bad" radiohead song. But this one is my least favourite on here.

This is why this website doesn't work - people vote without listening to all the songs in the top 10. If they did this song would easily be number 1 - it's by far their worst song!

On this list, there are good songs, and "Pop Is Dead".

Yes this one is their worst - Jiorl

4 Myxomatosis (Judge, Jury & Executioner)

It’s good until that annoying synth comes in. The song was supposed to be fun and groovy but that synth is really creepy and out of place.

I've got to admit that Hail to the Thief has to be their poorest record since Pablo Honey. So I can understand why three tracks of this album are currently in the top 10.

And honestly I do not understand why so many songs of The Bends are in the top 10 now, these (especially (Nice Dream) and Bullet Proof... I Wish I Was) are great!

Finally, the only reason Creep is up here as well is because of the hipsters and elitists. Sure, there may be better records that do not get the recognition the possibly overrated Creep has received, but it is still a killer track and an absolute classic!

I like this song, not one of my favourites, but I have to disagree with the person who said this was one of the poorest since Pablo Honey

Initially I enjoyed this song, but after a few weeks I began to get annoyed and bored with it. For me this was one of those catchy songs, that sounds good quickly and fades out losing it lustre quickly after;for me many songs that I enjoy quickly don't have 'staying power'-this was one of them. - abcrgb

5 Creep

Not bad, just overrated. - Userguy44

I hate how many people only like Creep and Karma Police, (and I hate how they think karma police is a depressing song)

They say I love Radiohead, but only listen to creep!

The only song that is high on both "Best Radiohead songs" and "Worst Radiohead songs"

This is by far my least favorite radiohead song. I am a huge radiohead fan (I have all their albums, yes even horrible Pablo honey) but I hate creep. I do love the message that creep is conveying in its lyrics, but I can't stand the song.

6 (Nice Dream)

What? This song is good, yes it's not their best but it is a very nice song. Far worse songs should be higher than this. There's a song on my iron ling rap called lozenge of love which in my opinion is just boring and doesn't sound too good.

My Iron Lung is one of their best songs. This, on the other hand, is terrible.

More like boring dream? I don't know, just don't like this song much. - abcrgb

7 Bullet Proof...I Wish I Was

This is such an amazing song and so is nice dream


8 Treefingers

There are songs of this kind that are beautiful, but this is just... boring. I also didn't like House Of Cards at the start, but then I started to pay attention to the constant guitar riff, and I loved it. That's the greatest thing of the song, the guitar. I understand that you may not like it, but there are other songs that are worst. - mattlol

Ok this song is terrible but some of these songs are amazing like the gloaming, I will, nice dream is ok, myxomatosis used to be my favourite song and bullet proof that's probably the most amazing relaxing brilliant awesomest ever song that they have ever made it's the best! I can't believe you put it on the worst list let alone 5th to the worst I am disgraced I thought radiohead fans knew what real music was but clearly not

This is absolutely nothing and hence incredibly tedious. Everything in the top ten except this and Revolving Doors is good. And House of Cards rules.

Not a terrible song, but I find my self bored with it in it's placement in KID A-it's a let down after HtDC, but I suppose that is the purpose of it, but it just doesn't work fully for me. - abcrgb

9 My Iron Lung

Great song, keep it up.

This is a good song, at least I think so

Seriously, this is the WORST radiohead song ever. followed by pulk pull revolving doors. the first two miniutes are good. then it suddenly becomes extremely lame.

And again... Boring to me - abcrgb

10 Coke Babies

The Contenders

11 The Gloaming (Softly Open Our Mouths in the Cold)

This is... Actually a great song. The lyrics are great and its just so creepy & weird. I like!

12 How Do You?

The worst song on Radiohead's worst album, still better than a few other's though.

13 Inside My Head
14 Fitter Happier

I know it's supposed to be social commentary and all that, but for me all it does is mark the end of the first half of OK Computer. Honestly it feels more pretentious than insightful.

15 I Will
16 Million Dollar Question
17 Vegetable
18 Kid A

It's not a bad song. The instrumental background and melody are pretty well throughout, but the vocals just ruin it. I'm serious the vocals just give me a head ache, it sounds like a prepubescent robot trying to sing but know they can't

It is just noise, but it probably is their best album, excluding this song it is probably a perfect record.

19 We Suck Young Blood

My opinion for the worst Radiohead song. Extremely slow, boring, and not pretty.

This song actively hurts to listen to.

Not a bad stand alone song by any stretch of the imagination but in it's album it's atrocious, and I don't see a moment where it could have been fine
If it was a b-side I'm sure it would have been praised

20 Bangers & Mash

I'm sure many will disagree with me on this one, and that is their right, but for me next to HOC this is my least favorite of IR. - abcrgb

21 Bones

This and "My Iron Lung" could be tied for their worst songs. I chose this one because at least with "My Iron Lung" the verse part is good. With this, everything about it is awful. With some of the other songs, you could make the argument that their just boring. This one you can't because it's in your face and obnoxious. The only Radiohead song I know that elicits such a reaction in me.

Again I like this

22 Feral

This is really eerie.

23 High and Dry
24 Lotus Flower

This song isn't that bad, should be a bit lower though. - Mumbizz01

This is not even like them!

25 MK2
26 Hunting Bears

I don't think this song is bad. In fact it's not really a song. I see it as an interlude for the Amnesiac album. And even though it has no lyrics, it's a very mellow ambient.

27 Where Bluebirds Fly

Could have been great with a different arrangement, but this one just ended up sounding like something from a video game.

28 Idioteque

Best song on Kid A.

This can get annoying after a while, but I don't mind it

I think I'm the only diehard Radiohead fan in the world who doesn't like this song. The drum machines give me a massive headache.

29 Like Spinning Plates

Although I love Amnesiac, if you take alone "Like Spinning Plates" it can be really... well, just bad. Yet this song has been certainly rectified by its live version!

I love this song

30 Morning Bell / Amnesiac

What's wrong with this?

31 Faust Arp


32 Yes I Am

Yes you are...

33 Stop Whispering

I can't stand this song. It cheesy and generic, and the lyrics are nothing special at all. Even worse than Pop is Dead in my opinion. (Also Pulk/Pull and House of Cards are great, what is wrong with you guys? ) - chevygolderado

34 Sail to the Moon

Sail to the Moon is amazing! It's one of those songs that you don't like initially, but grow to like later on. The piano in it is beautiful!

Your list is just completely bolloks myxomatosis is my favorite song and house of cards is good too and about the song I think sail to the moon was nice when I started listening to it but then afterwards it was just boring I mean sailed on shooting stars come on radiohead you can do better than that

WHAT?!? This song is beautiful, haunting, and this is one of the better tracks on Halt to the Thief. And who the hell put Idioteque on this list?

35 Exit Music (For a Film)

Who doesn't like this?

Are you kidding me? At least put Lucky or a song that is actually annoying. This song is probably one of my favourites

NOOO! Please don't hate on this song, or OK Computer for that matter. I'm not saying that you have to like OK Computer, but this is one of the best songs on it!

P.S. In Rainbows and Kid A are my 2nd and 3rd favourite albums by them, but they are still perfect! =)

36 15 Steps

Nothing off In Rainbows should even be here...

This song is so amazing!

37 MK1
38 Trans-Atlantic Drawl
39 I Am Citizen Insane
40 Stand Up Sit Down
41 The Gloaming
42 Bloom
43 There There
