Radiohead 101

Posted on Thursday, May 23, 2013 by Movies_and_Music

Radiohead has been one of my favorite bands for years, and I know more about them than is probably healthy...haha.  I've often been asked what is the best way to get into the band, in what order should their albums be listened, and just general questions about how to delve into their catalog.  It's easy to dismiss Radiohead as the band who hit it big in 93' with the song 'Creep' and was never heard from again, but it may surprise you to know that in the intervening years between then and now, Radiohead has built a massive worldwide fanbase and are able to sell out an arena tour in under a minute yet for some reason when you ask random folks if they listen to Radiohead, no one seems to be a fan or know anything about them!  I can't explain that, but I can offer this primer of Radiohead's best work and what I most highly recommend for new fans.

 

Enjoy and happy listening!
