About the artist
Radiohead released their debut single "Creep" in 1992. The song was initially unsuccessful, but it became a worldwide hit several months after the release of their debut album, Pablo Honey. Radiohead's popularity rose in the United Kingdom with the release of their second album, The Bends. Radiohead's third album, OK Computer, propelled them to greater international fame. Featuring an expansive sound and themes of modern alienation, OK Computer is often acclaimed as one of the landmark records of the 1990s and one of the best albums of all time.
Kid A and Amnesiac marked a dramatic evolution in Radiohead's musical style, as the group incorporated experimental electronic music, krautrock and jazz influences. Hail to the Thief, a mix of piano and guitar driven rock, electronics, and lyrics inspired by war, was the band's final album for their major record label, EMI.
