Dear Discobamba, stay away from Radiohead. They are not good, not crap but not good either. The lists that will come here after my post will contain songs like: "Creep", "Paranoid android". I can imagine that you are going to like the song Creep at first, if you do listen to it a couple of times and you will realize that the entire song is only built on the refrain, the rest is just crap. Paranoid android is just extremely strange.
This is the bad part of Radiohead, they are a bit odd. That attracts people. People want to be special and Radiohead is different.

Anyhow, I could recommend "Fake plastic trees" and Karma Police"

why are you stuck on that man? get over it. if i listen to radiohead that is because i want to be special. fek off. so if listened to pop music my ideology would be "i want to be just like everyone else"?

yes, they are odd, but i don't see that as a problem. i you don't like that, that's ok, no one is forcing you to love them, but calling others some kind of wannabes just because they like different music is stupid. i remember you like pearl jam. ok, i bought their live cd couple of days ago, and some time ago i bought dave matthews band's live cd as well.. for my untutored ear they sounded very similar, sometimes even identical. so is that what makes them good?

please, explain me.

dj, don't listen to him.

dunno about songs though, for me rahiohead is the kind of album band. yes, separate songs are very good but album as piece sounds much better. e.g. take "nice dream" from "the bends". ordinary song. but without it album would be incomplete.

anyway, here's my favs:
idioteque (very strange song)
paranoid androin
just
exit music
i might be wrong
street spirit, karma police
lucky
climbing up the walls
2+2=5
backdrifts
a wolf at the door

that's not all just cant remember or exclude somth special
really, just try down loading albums, might be better. or not, like in zambrotta's case.
but you are special and different, you should like them. on the other hand you're like this without them. :undecide:


lol, just now i'm looking for tickets to radiohead show in ny on ebay :D

I am not calling you a wannabee, it is possible that you really like their music. I know a lot of people who listen to Radiohead mostly or only because they are odd, that is what bothers me.

I can admit that I from the beginning have had something against Radiohead, that might be what makes me not like 'em. But I honestly think there are a lot of better bands.


Are you gonna go all the way to America just to see Radiohead? :undecide:

radiohead are my fav band, i cant get enough of them!

as for their best...well, its hard.

i love evrything they have done from Ok Computer to their current 'Hail to the thief'.

my suggestions are that you go to sites where you download albums and try to get the full albums. They are worth it...
