Radiohead is an English rock band formed in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, in 1985. It comprises Thom Yorke (vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards); brothers Jonny Greenwood (guitar, keyboards, other instruments) and Colin Greenwood (bass); Ed O’Brien (guitar, backing vocals); and Philip Selway (drums, percussion). They have worked with producer Nigel Godrich and cover artist Stanley Donwood since 1994. Radiohead’s experimental approach is credited with advancing the sound of alternative rock.

Radiohead signed to EMI in 1991 and released their debut album, Pablo Honey, in 1993. Their debut single, “Creep”, was a worldwide hit, and their popularity and critical standing rose with The Bends in 1995. Their third album, OK Computer (1997), is acclaimed as a landmark record and one of the best albums in popular music, with complex production and themes of modern alienation. Their fourth album, Kid A (2000), marked a dramatic change in style, incorporating influences from electronic music, jazz, classical music and krautrock. Though Kid A divided listeners, multiple outlets later named it the best album of the decade. It was followed by Amnesiac (2001), recorded in the same sessions. Hail to the Thief (2003), with lyrics addressing the war on terror, blended the band’s rock and electronic sides and was Radiohead’s final album for EMI.

Radiohead self-released their seventh album, In Rainbows (2007), as a download for which customers could set their price to critical and chart success. Their eighth album, The King of Limbs (2011), an exploration of rhythm, was developed using extensive looping and sampling. A Moon Shaped Pool (2016) featured Jonny Greenwood’s orchestral arrangements prominently. Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, Selway and O’Brien have released solo albums. In 2021, Yorke and Jonny Greenwood debuted a new band, the Smile.

By 2011, Radiohead had sold more than 30 million albums worldwide.[1] Their awards include six Grammy Awards and four Ivor Novello Awards, and they hold five Mercury Prize nominations, the most of any act. Seven Radiohead singles have reached the top 10 on the UK Singles Chart: “Creep” (1992), “Street Spirit (Fade Out)” (1996), “Paranoid Android” (1997), “Karma Police” (1997), “No Surprises” (1998), “Pyramid Song” (2001), and “There There” (2003). “Creep” and “Nude” (2008) reached the top 40 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Rolling Stone named Radiohead one of the 100 greatest artists of all time, and Rolling Stone readers voted them the second-best artist of the 2000s. Five Radiohead albums have been included in Rolling Stone’s “The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time” lists. Radiohead were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019.
