I hope this goes green back to back with the other one.

Must say though, the other headline made me laugh.

In my college days I was so frustrated by Paranoid Android because I enjoyed the rocking part in the beginning, but felt the song came to a crashing halt as soon as the Greenwood bit about "rain down.." came in. It was clearly an attempt to take two unfinished songs and combine them to create something finished. Nowadays, the Greenwood part is my favorite part of the song, the only part I still like to play on guitar, and the rest of it sounds way too 90's alternative.

I remember Fake plastic trees being part of one of my presentations in high school.

Ok Computer was the last Radiohead I loved, I guess I should go back and listen to it again.

Liked both, but still enjoy The Bends more than OK Computer.  OK Computer was a great album, but I still don't quite get what the fuss was all about.

In Rainbows is all but an OK Computer Part 2. A little less crunch on the guitars, otherwise I can't seeing someone who likes one not liking the other.

There's even a playlist based on a fan theory, an "album" called 0110 that interleaves the two into a double album. It works surprisingly well, despite being based on fans reading too much into things.

This is best if the songs are set to fade into one another:

Radiohead - 01 and 10 playlist:
1. Airbag (OK Computer)
2. 15 Step (In Rainbows)
3. Paranoid Android (OK Computer)
4. Bodysnatchers (In Rainbows)
5. Subterranean Homesick Alien (OK Computer)
6. Nude (In Rainbows)
7. Exit Music (For A Film) (OK Computer)
8. Weird Fishes/Arpeggi (In Rainbows)
9. Let Down (OK Computer)
10. All I Need (In Rainbows)
11. Karma Police (OK Computer)
12. Fitter Happier (OK Computer)
13. Faust Arp (In Rainbows)
14. Electioneering (OK Computer)
15. Reckoner (In Rainbows)
16. Climbing Up The Walls (OK Computer)
17. House Of Cards (In Rainbows)
18. No Surprises (OK Computer)
19. Jigsaw Falling Into Place (In Rainbows)
20. Lucky (OK Computer)
21. Videotape (In Rainbows)
22. The Tourist (OK Computer)

Radiohead's one of those bands who I recognize are talented, but I could just never get into them. They did do a fantastic live cover of Sunday, Bloody Sunday. Apologies for the photo. It's the only recording I could find on YouTube.

That's not Radiohead, it's U2. It's a version they did on their PopMart tour. Edge is singing it.

What did DSOTM influence?

Usually if you are "influencing" you can see a trail of artists mimicking then for years later.

Menudo is more influential than Pink Floyd.

I've never knowingly heard anything by Radiohead apart from the abysmal 'Creep' buy from what I've read about their subsequent work over the years it sounds like Radiohead for one may have been somewhat influenced by Pink Floyd.

Same. Also stopped with Please Please Me for the Beatles.

That album can't be 25-years-old. I was in my early twenties when it came out, and now I'm...

Damnit.

I always though Bad Religions "Against the Grain" was a better swipe at modern consumerism and the dangers of assimilation without question.

The soundtrack to the new Susperia was good. Technically not Radiohead, but close enough.

Well, it depends on what you mean by "influenced". But I wouldn't say any of those 3 bands you listed sound anything like Pink Floyd.

But no other band sounds like "Pink Floyd".  Their sound was too distinctive. If you tried to *really* sound like Pink Floyd, everybody would know, and would dismiss you as poor copycats.

There are other bands like that. Steely Dan. The Police. You imitate them at your own peril.

But you can still be *influenced* by them. In the sense that you want to cover similar ground, or really like certain aspects of their music.

Actually, Bowie has admitted on several occasions that Syd Barrett was a huge influence on him, especially in his Ziggy Startdust days.

As for U2, if you listen to some of their early 80s albums such as War, Boy or October, they used studio techniques that PF revolutionized in the 70s.

And on Radiohead, Johnny Greenwood has admitted they inspired Ok Computer, especially Lucky from PF. Tom Yorke has also stated they have styled their concert style from PF.

Subby...

I dislike Radiohead a lot, but I'm not the world's biggest hater by any stretch - that said, I was a professional DJ for 15 years, I've attended +/- 500 concerts in my life - everything from the monsters like Bruce Springsteen, U2, Pink Floyd, Metallica in arenas to the most obscure indies in their larval stage at tiny clubs - and the Radiohead show supporting OK Computer (and still puttering along on the equally pompous The Bends) at the State Theater in Minneapolis on 8/5/97 is the the worst show I have ever seen, no question. It was an absolutely mind-numbingly boring event and every aspect of its production was like sleep therapy for smug people. It was also the last time Radiohead played in Minneapolis because the trip here creates too many greenhouse gases or some stupid shiat.

Anyone who claims to be a true music fan that can't see right through what these guys do, especially in relation to all the other sonically superior offerings that surround them in the industry, is not being fair or intellectually honest.

[exaggerated inhale and exhale] So, I'm glad I got this off my chest, Subby. Thank you

See, to me, Pink Floyd was more a sensibility than a sound.

OK Computer is very OK. The Bends is damn fine.

Hail to the Thief, Kid A, and Moon Shaped Pool are freakin' amazing.

I've tried In Rainbows, but bounced off it twice. Not feeling it yet.
