Radiohead in the mid-2010s
Radiohead in the mid-2010s

The English rock band Radiohead have recorded over 160 songs since their debut in 1992. Radiohead's first album, Pablo Honey (1993), preceded by their breakthrough single "Creep", features a sound reminiscent of alternative rock bands such as the Pixies and Nirvana. The Bends (1995) marked a move toward "anthemic rock", with more cryptic lyrics about social and global topics, as well as elements of Britpop. OK Computer (1997), the first Radiohead album produced by longtime collaborator Nigel Godrich, features more abstract lyrics that reflect themes of modern alienation, as well as subtle, complex and textured songs. Kid A (2000) and Amnesiac (2001), recorded in the same sessions, marked a drastic change in style, incorporating influences from electronic music, 20th-century classical music, krautrock and jazz.
