Normal it's official

Radiohead is my favorite band!

i have not liked a band more than U2 since Vanilla Ice in the 3rd grade.

i'm scared, confused, and wondering if I will ever like U2 more than Radiohead again.


has this happened to anyone else?

No one will ever fess up to that here, but I will. Once you go Radiohead, u never go back. (ok, that made no sense, but you get the drift.)

It's came close for me, but U2 is the better band.

RH is repetitive often in their music.

I like RH, but they've got ALOT to prove before they get into the legend status U2 occupy.

Agreed.

I like Radiohead, but their last three albums aren't up to par of OK Computer and The Bends.

Interesting this thread should pop up now. Just a few minutes ago, I almost called Radiohead my favorite band while mentioning them to a coworker. Could I be slipping over to the dark side?

I don't know what's so good about Radiohead, they have one decent album (The Bends) the others are a total waste of time. All their music is is Thom Yorke rambling some crap lyrics about his self-loathing personality.

I can't believe people even consider them better than U2. They need to get off whatever they're on.

I'm out...

You know, there are always going to be a contingent of people like you out there who think RH haven't done anything worthy since The Bends. You are the Radiohead equivalent of the 'Eighties U2 is Best' crowd. That's fine, you're entitled to your opinion but I can't help but feel that this type of people got stuck in a musical rut years ago and are unable to evolve to appreciate anything new or different. There are alot of people out there, myself included, who feel that RH has done there best work since The Bends. It's all a matter of opinion I guess. Neither group will ever convince the other one that their view is the correct one.

Not everyone who dislikes Radioheads recent work fits this mold. I think The Bends and OKC are their best work, and their last 3 are spotty at best. I also think 90's U2 is far superior to 80's U2, and AB has it all over JT.

Well put Calluna.

ps~ Kid A is by far my fave RH album, and I'm a die-hard fan(atic).
