Every time i meet Radiohead fans, i get a lecture about how they changed music etc

I never met a fan who says yea top band and then moved on to the next topic of conversation. I am generalising here but most of the fans i have met like to complicate everything and they like Sci-fi which i cant stand. They like to think to much about Everything!

They are good - some amazing tunes, some awful depressing cack as well

NO great albums - 4 good ones (bends, ok Com, Kid A and In rainbows which i finally have got into)

Their type of music is not the type of stuff you'd get in the pub or whilst walking in shopping centres

I've heard that if you chant Noel Gallagher's name three times in succession, he suddenly appears and tells you to stop fucking talking about him.

If you do the same thing with Thom Yorke, he just starts crying.

Better than chanting Biggy Smalls then....

Thinking's bad, man. "To much" of it'll kill ya.

(I'm generalizing, of course.)

Sci-Fi is hein, I agree.

I wouldn't say RADIOHEAD fans think that much about stuff. They are quite silent in my experience. Usually they are hardcore lefties who are so set in their ways they tend to be angry at everything in the world, against everyone, introverted people, who aren't fun to make eye contact or socialise with. They just sit there in their little corner of the train in their HTTT t-shirt which doesn't fit nice and slimly, daydreaming of misery, and not in a cool way like a Joy Division way, but in a rather sad way.....

I am generalising here....

Yeah, you're generalizing. Like when I say that Oasis fans are cro-magnon hooligans who wouldn't know good literature or good music if it came up and fisted them in the ass, and are content to listen to watered-down, derivative pap while they headbutt each other in pubs.

But then so many other bands have appealed to the same fan base that you have generalised. The whole punk movement for one.

Having met a number of Radiohead fans from Interference, as well as tons outside of here, not to mention all the people waiting in line at the shows and seated around me, I can say this is one of the most ridiculous things I've read in here.
