Radiohead is not a one hit wonder however, in fact, their popularity steadily grew throughout the nineties, and culminated with the release of OK Computer. The 1997 album was full of experimental song structures and avant-garde attempts to incorporate digital sounds, especially considering the state of technology at the time. OK Computer was compared to Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon by impressed critics and a generation turned into atomized individuals by technology related to the words of tracks like, “Subterranean Homesick Alien” and “Paranoid Android”. OK, Computer was nominated for Best Album at the Grammy’s and received Best Alternative Album that year.
For a band which is known to use heavy effects, Radiohead is able to translate their sound onto the stage remarkably well. The band first began touring together in 1992. Performances of “Creep” on this tour, with the dramatic explosion of guitar sound preceding the chorus, are credited with building hype around the band before the release of Pablo Honey. Touring was difficult in the early years for the band members, particularly Yorke, who would go on long drinking bouts contemplating the band’s identity. These sometimes led to shows being canceled. Since their rocky start in the early nineties, the band has become inseparable.

More About Radiohead
The rock and roll journey has been rough on the members of Radiohead, especially Yorke. It is unclear if it has something to do with the lyrics of their songs, but the alcoholism Yorke was prone to in the band’s early years developed into depression as the nineties progressed. Around 1998 Yorke felt like he needed a break from heavy touring. In 2004 Yorke took a break from the band to pursue a solo project. The band took another hiatus in 2012 but got back to touring by 2014.
