Picking between Radiohead and Wilco's like picking between Michael Jordan and Larry Bird - neither of them are worse than the other, one of them is just whiter.

MMhh.. Let me see, Radiohead is way overrated, but not precisely boring..., these days I'm starting to like In Rainbows , Kid A is very boring for the most part , Amnesiac too, Hail ... too, my vote goes to Radiohead, because i never listened to Wilco, so I'm giving them the benefit of doubt...

Come on Wilco , make me close my eyelids !!, you can't lose this race... !!

Awesome thread. Radiohead have two good songs. Two. Idioteque and Electioneering. The rest aren't worth the time of day.

Can't really vote, though, since the few songs I've heard by Wilco have been so intolerably boring that I haven't bothered to listen to even one full album, while I've listened to a fair chunk of Radiohead's discography after having them so enthusiastically pushed on me by folks here. 5 albums vs whatever songs have been used in Desert Island tournaments doesn't seem like a valid basis for comparison.

Cracking thread, a nice balancer to some of the over-top Radiohead fundamentalism....

I voted for Wilco 'cause though Kid A puts me to sleep, it puts me to sleep in an awesome way. What a great album. They actually put their ideas in the right places.

Wow, that's the best you could do? You Radiohead fans are really scraping the bottom of the barrel these days.

This is a Radiohead unappreciation thread. If you don't like Radiohead (or, apparently, Wilco), this is the thread for you. Otherwise...unless you can be mature...you are probably better off just choosing to participate in another thread.

Right, If you love Radiohead, and you are a sensitive person, be warned that some posts here can hurt you...

Oh, and I voted for Radiohead...because I'd give up my Radiohead CDs before I'd give up my Wilco CDs. I do like them both though...so I'm not really good as far as the whole unappreciation thing goes.
