There's only one parachute to put above that cold rush everyone.

Anybody can sing. I think what you meant, perhaps, was that Thom Yorke can't sing well.


But then, of course, you'd be wildly incorrect.

Whether or not she is attractive matters not to me, I can't stand their music.

right. I would say the same about Wayne Coyne. The guy could use voice lessons in the worst way.

I think that was understood in both the statement and the reply.

Ahhhh, ok. My bad.


You know what song I've always thought showed off some good Thommy vocals as well as being just an underrated Radiohead song? "You"

This. Also, Stop Whispering.

As a matter of fact, here's an unpopular opinion: I have more fun listening to Pablo Honey than Hail To The Thief. Doubt that surprises anyone.

Sulk is a pretty solid vocal as well, and the closest he's probably come to Boner.

You don't give HTTT enough credit. I do think that it's inconsistent, but it's at least half great, if not moreso.

I wander around bars a lot and, you know, at bars they have open mic nights and ambitious semi-hipster bastards are always up there strumming away. I've witnessed a lot of open mic nights in my time and, I don't want to sound like an elitist Radiohead fan or somethin, but it realllllly pisses me off that the only Radiohead song that any open mic kid or cover band ever plays is "Creep." Seriously, I've never heard anything else.

It's like, do they realize that the band, post-"Creep", has one of the most brilliant music catalogues of the last quarter century? Play something else, dammit.

I'm not trying to out-hipster anyone, but I NEVER liked Creep. I don't hate it, but it sounded derivative when it came out, and still does nothing for me.

Also never liked Beck's Loser, either (or much of Mellow Gold), and didn't come around on him until seeing a solo set with him and a walkman. Really liked One Foot In The Grave.

I did, however, like Smells Like Teen Spirit immediately. As any sane person would.

I played "High and Dry" at an open mic night one time, Gaffer.

There were no survivors.
