Originally called On A Friday, Radiohead is a band that is miles ahead of the rest of the crap released nowadays. Ranked 73 in Rolling Stone's list of greatest artists, Radiohead is made up of five members: frontman Thom Yorke, guitarist Jonny Greenwood, bassist Colin Greenwood (who is the older brother of Jonny), drummer Philip Selway, and other guitarist Ed O'Brien. Radiohead has released eight studio albums, a few of which are considered classics. They are Pablo Honey (1993), The Bends (1995), OK Computer (1997), Kid A (2000), Amnesiac (2001), Hail to the Thief (2003), In Rainbows (2007), and The King of Limbs (2011). While Pablo Honey is not as acclaimed as the earlier albums, it is the album that made the band hit it big, as it carried their hit single, Creep. Other famous songs by the group include Fake Plastic Trees, High and Dry, Paranoid Android, Karma Police, No Surprises, Idioteque, Everything in its Right Place, Pyramid Song, Reckoner, Nude, and (most recently) Lotus Flower.
Radiohead should be the most popular band in the entire world. Seriously.

An english alternative rock band that formed in Oxfordshire in 1985 by the name of 'On a Friday'.

Achieved a world wide smash hit single 'Creep' in 1992, but came to detest being recognized a as one hit wonder band. So the members decided to explore new ground with each subsequent and diverse album, dipping their musical toes in Jazz, Electronica, Avant-Garde, Space and Art rock.

By 2007 they had released their seventh studio album over the internet, but with a catch... buyers could purchase the album for whatever price they wanted. Even for nothing.

Radiohead have developed a massive fan base over the years and have been regarded critically by many as one of the greatest bands alive today, having been chosen by the Rolling Stone magazine as one of the greatest artists of all time.

But on a separate note, anyone who cites Radiohead as 'boring' or 'pretentious', HAS CLEARLY NEVER BLOODY LISTENED TO 'KID A' IN THEIR LIFE!!!!!!!
"Oi mate, this Radiohead stuff is naff!"

"Good lord, I'm sorry I ever doubted you! This album is AMAZING!"

'A radiohead!: Definition: a person who has a great voice; conjures up images of attractivenes and sultry seductive undertones but infact are ugly as sin or to be politically correct aesthetically unpleasing.
e.g. a face fit for radio
e.g. " I spoke to this right 'radiohead' the other day. She sounded great on the phone but when i saw her i made a dash for the toilet.."
