Great, yes, but you've got to be a fairly big fan to know that one.

I have a friend who writes "lol", "rofl", or "lmao" nearly every other IM or text.

I think she's crazy. Maybe.

I have a friend I used to IM with on a regular basis, and she was so fed up with "lol" that she started writing just L instead.

Me, I've switched to "hee!" or "ha." Sometimes a "heh."

I refuse to part with "wtf" or "omg," though. I like "omg" for comic effect or exaggerated excitement.

My favorite use of "omg" is when you look for the amount of sodium in food.

0mg... omg!

In Australia, Creep, no question. No other Radiohead song has ever got commercial radioplay.

Idioteque should be the most popular, and it has/had the potential to be.

For me personally, if someone asked me to "show them what Radiohead's like", I'd play Paranoid Android for them.
The people I know wouldn't even be able to name a Radiohead song, but I'd give them credit for at least knowing they exist.

They're a very unconvential band, that's the conclusion I've come to since getting In Rainbows. A band with a relatively mainstream following with barely a mainstream tune (that I've heard).

For a few pixels, I reckon he can look quite bloody mean.

I barely use lol anymore, I'm sticking with my "haha".

I never, ever realised that.

And now, thanks to you, I have yet another joke for Chemistry class. Boy are they gonna love it. It might even tramp my "Why did everyone like mushroom?" joke.

Creep's the only song I knew before I got OK Computer, and I think I heard it once, maybe on Triple J or something like that.

In the U.S., definitely Creep, but around here at least both Fake Plastic Trees and High And Dry get a bit of airplay.

That's about it, though.

The answer is, at least in the US of A...

CREEP followed closely by KARMA POLICE.

Those are the two that non-fans might recognize.

And, my God, they are both great songs. I don't give a shit what anyone says.

A Radiohead thread happened without me?

I don't know what I was doing when Creep came out (uh, actually I do, long story) but I don't think I ever heard it until loonnnng after I was into The Bends and Ok Computer. At the time I was going on and on about those two records a friend told me Creep was the only Radiohead song he knew. I didn't know wtf he was talking about and thought he had MY band confused with someone else.

Maybe this is one for Zoo Confessionals.

So I still forget how famous that song is. I would have said Karma Police or Fake Plastic without even thinking about it.

I agree with mofo--I would use Paranoid Android to introduce most people to Radiohead unless I thought they were more the In Rainbows type.

I heard Creep quite a bit when it first came out but then I pretty much dropped out and most of the rest of the 90s were a blur to me. I remember thinking a few times in the very late 90s and early 00s "Hmm...I wonder whatever happened to that band that did Creep?"
