BQ: What's so good about them? I see loads of people that primarily listen to Hip Hop have loads of Radiohead plays on Last FM.

Please enlighten me oh wise ones...........

Nah, I've just posted multiple links to various Radiohead related things in the last few days because I fucking hate them.

BQ: You know what album really fucking sucks? Illmatic.

Yup, one of my favorite bands.

BQ: I like their instrumentals more than anything. They do a great job setting mood and tone, especially on their first few albums. I don't really listen for lyrics at all.

Yeah I dig them. I think they are very creative. Creating cinematic landscape type music. Very relaxing

Uhh, I guess it's pretty fair to call Radiohead my favorite band of all time. Generally in other genres you're not going to see me reference lyrics a lot since, usually I just like hearing the voices and the lyrics don't really matter to me, but Radiohead lyrics are absolutely amazing to me personally. The singer, Thom Yorke, talks a lot about fear of the world which is becoming more consumerist and obsessive over things that truly don't matter. They're lyrics seem kinda paranoid often though, in fact a lot of the lyrics on the albums Kid A and OK Computer seem rather apocalyptic, especially on the former. To me the topics they address are interesting because I also guess I live my life in fear.

As far as other things, I can't say there's any other bands in the world that make music that just sounds so captivating and melodic and pleasing to me. The sounds on the album In Rainbows are almost all amazing; beautiful sounds without going overboard with the art rock principle of the album and the terrifying lyrics, that reference civilization's problems and possible collapse, as well as personal topics like unrequited love..that album is almost too much to describe.
I'll post a few tracks that I feel things I mentioned apply to

Idioteque- electronic style song, lyrics referencing nuclear winter, beautiful song I think
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNqv3nHyteM
Fitter Happier- basically OK Computer in a nutshell, the album talking about how fast society is progressing and turning into a less personal and less self controlled place
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xK0njkATf84
House of Cards- very nice song, talks about unrequited love and mentions society falling
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTCe02uV3TA
Fake Plastic Trees- earlier song, I can't diagram this as well but the lyrics seem to be about personal struggle
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKd06s1LNik

I'll make a sidenote these are just my interpretations, and I've seen a lot of others with similar interpretations...nothing definite, which is another beauty for me in a lot of music-ambiguity

This is one of my favorites, The Bends is GOAT Radiohead album, tbh.

I've always interpreted it as being about the futility of trying to be someone that you're not in order to impress others. Even if you can fool them for a while, eventually, you'll always be revealed as a fake.
