The Bends is the second studio album by the English rock band Radiohead, released on 13 March 1995 by Parlophone in the United Kingdom and Capitol Records in the United States. It was produced by John Leckie, and engineered by Nigel Godrich, who has produced all of Radiohead's subsequent studio albums. It was the first Radiohead album with cover art by Stanley Donwood, who, with singer Thom Yorke, has produced all of Radiohead's artwork since.
The Bends moved away from the grunge-influenced style of Radiohead's debut album Pablo Honey, incorporating cryptic lyrics, greater use of keyboards, and more abrasive guitar tracks. It produced five charting singles: "My Iron Lung", "High and Dry", "Fake Plastic Trees", "Just", and "Street Spirit", the latter of which became Radiohead's first top-five UK single.
The Bends reached #4 on the UK Albums Chart. However, it failed to build on the success of their single "Creep" outside the United Kingdom, and peaked on the United States charts at #88. It achieved triple platinum certifications in the UK and Canada and platinum in the United States and Europe.
