I don't like 'em- they've always given me the vibe that they make smart music for stupid people. I mean, their music initially sounds deep and epic but it simply isn't.

radiohead has the occasional passage, or less frequently a song, that impresses me. overall i'd say crap. almost all my friends love them and can't understand why i don't. meanwhile i don't understand what the big deal is about them.

Radiohead is way overrated, but they are still good. Not Crap.

p.s. Alot of their fans suck.

Not overrated, just talked about a lot. I don't hear the genius word as often as I expect to, but I don't read Q Magazine either. Time will tell, but so far what they have done and how far they've come is pretty amazing to me. Plus, they write some great songs and their records sound real good, too. The new one has some creepy moments that I love.

they have a handful of songs that I can honestly say I truly enjoy. Everything else blows.

my biggest complaint is how whiny they are

so i just cast the tying vote (for now) with a CRAP making it exactly 50/50.
I like a lot of their songs and ideas, however once I saw the documentary (i forget what it's called) I got really upset. Thom Yorke is such a fucking hole. He is constantly whining and complaining. He doesn't want to be a rock star. What the fuck? He is in a hugely succesful band that is making millions doing EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANT TO with total creative freedom. Wow that sucks Thom, Im so sorry.

I don't own any. But respect it enough to call it "not crap". I love The Bends and OK Computer, I'd use the rest as coasters. Or maybe as indoor frisbees. Or maybe a mobile. Or as bread for digital crap sandwich with a dat in the middle.

Well, I mean, I do respect them to a certain point, and I'm glad that sometimes KRock plays their music instead of Ill Nino or the stupid nu-metal band of the moment, but I don't really like the band itself.

my vote = not crap. reason follows:

-i've been playing guitar now for the past 9 years. in college, i received my minor in music with a specialty in guitar performance. the study of modern music and the modern classical movement were integral to the program, and honestly, many might be surprised that the offbeat, electronic and syncopated samplings that are radiohead have been done before. and no, i do not mean by other pop/rock/industrial/etc. musicians. i mean as a 20th century classical art form. to say that radiohead makes "smart music for stupid people" is just to show unknowledgeable you are of the history of music. they have taken an musical art form, woven in their own characteristic style, and made it available to popular culture. i believe that is a truly bold and great move for a great band in the midst of nu-metal angst thrasher, emo-sissy off key whiner, and fist-pump poser bands. sorry for the intrusion :lol:

goodnight!

So you're telling me that the reason Radiohead has so much mainstream appeal is because they appeal to music historians and take a lot of their cues from 20th century classical music?

Yeah, sure, buddy.

sorry schnapp, you're response is very characteristic of people who have no education of this style of music. and the reason i quote myself above is because i did not say that they solely take their cues from 20th century classical music, i said what i said above. most people would absolutely hate - yes, you included - 20th century post-modernism in classical music. but post-modernism is being more and more frequently involved in the popular media of today. have you ever watched fight club? any quentin tarantino film? how about music...read some nirvana lyrics. bush lyrics. go deeper - the concept of the matrix. and that is just scratching the surface at the media that hits the mainstream full force. there is much more available. radiohead's appeal is in their uniqueness, derived from these roots - but it does not just stop there, nor did i ever say it did. they have a unique vocal style, they typically sing in similar keys (d minor, c minor), they use a lot of harmonic minor scales when they harmonize. all these are characteristic radiohead sounds, perfected on ok computer and continued with a different feel.

don't take offense, don't post rude replies without any backing. it just further proves how too many people post on these boards in ignorant and opinionated blindness.
