A person who works for an audio broadcasting system. Possibly Austrailian in origin. In a documentary starring ABBA (of all bands) an Austrailian man with a mike and a tape recorder (the size of an extra large breadbox) comes up to Bjorn, Sven or Svven or whatever the fuck his name is and says "I'm a radiohead. I was wondering if you can answer a few questions for our broadcast". Radiohead (the band) has nothing to do with Abba. The word was merely used in a documentary, so don't freak the fuck out. This was also long before Talking Heads, so I don't think they were the first to put 'radio' next to 'head' without a space.
I'm a radiohead. My job is to ask you about your inspriation for "Fernando" and what's up with all the white?

1. an overrated chump Britpop band that got great success and critical adulation in the fucking PC 90s and still gets it today. Singer Thom Yorke whines lyrics full of angst and painful references. The other players ain't so hot either. They first hit it big with "The Bends" in 1995 and their 1997 album "O.K. Computer" was declared a "classic", comparable with the Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" and Pink Floyd's "The Wall". Yeah, right. 2000's "Kid A" has also been declared a "masterpiece", but that just shows what a wasteland popular music has become. That album is just pompous, pretentious crap. Radiohead is a critical "darling" favorite just like that other Britpop dud, Oasis. Ha ha ha.

2. "Radio Head" is a cool, catchy number found on the 1986 album "True Stories" by the unique American New Wave band Talking Heads. The song title inspired the name of the overrated British band.
1. Radiohead gets compared to U2 and Pink Floyd alot and that is a crock of shit. Their music is just artsy-fartsy tedium with whiny vocals. All their albums are boring rubbish.

2. The song "Radio Head" is pumped up by a guest accordion player. Get the "True Stories" CD and check out this and the other fine cuts on this album.

Band that formed under the name On A Friday in 1986 and then changed their name to Radiohead in 1991. Made of members Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, Colin Greenwood, Ed O'Brien, and Phil Selway. Best known for songs like "Creep" (which people know alot for being on Rock Band, these people are not true Radiohead fans), "High And Dry", and "Karma Police". Early in their career, Radiohead was known as mainly as alternative or grunge, but as time went on they experimented with genres such as electronica and jazz. They have created 7 albums, most of which are now looked upon as classics or masterpieces. People who hate on Radiohead usually do so because they are brainwashed by mainstream music, or they are jealous that Radiohead is considered one of the best musical artists in history.
Radiohead is one of the most influential bands ever.

Let's go listen to some Radiohead.
