Hahaha...no. According to this logic, the Jonas Brothers are a superior rock band to Porcupine Tree. One is on the charts, and the other isn't.

Porcupine Tree doesn't want to be on the shitty charts!

Radiohead best of being released by EMI.... good set list, but EMI sucks for doing it without Radiohead's approval.

BTW... radiohead are known for writing challenging songs, using unusual chord voicings, strange timing and subtle hooks. Its no wonder a lot of people don't like them.... but it's easy to see why people with musical taste do

They are experimental garbage...sorry i had to get that off my chest.
I think I love you

To me Radiohead, produces, mmh, good music, regular music, nothing extraordinaire, or special, I agree with the title of this thread, what's the fuss ?

In the past , they released good songs, great albums, The Bends and Ok computer , for example, then , since Kid-A, until now with In Rainbows, they are producing music specially directed to the snob critic , and to "very smart and informed people": I'm-more-smart-than-you-because-I'm-listening-and-digging-In-Rainbows-and-I-didn't-spend-1-cent-for-it

Oh Jebus !, zero rock, zero attitude, just some atmopsherics divagations, poor melodies, layers and layers of mumbled electro effects, with "strangcryptic chords, and "seudo-mystic" lyrics: "yeah, everybody will choke, someday !!"

Oh, but it's cool, man, they are kicking to the industrie in the ass, poor blind , you cannot see it.

Probably because, like most, you disregard everything by the person who posted it.

I was hoping this thread would die, but hey! There's another "only snobs like Radiohead" jackass to put us all in our places for liking sophisticated music made by talented individuals. Maybe you'll get it in ten years, keep trying.

I'd like to know how Bodysnatchers = "zero rock".

Since 2000 they've made almost no singles, no promo videos, no interviews, no MTV, no Super Bowl, no Oprah, no iPod, no commercials, etc, etc. Nowhere near as the amount of canned s*** that surround every new U2 release, Bono's moneytalks, Grammys and Rolling Stones magazine included

If "attitude" and "rock" means childish and amateurish attempt at mainstream radio hits for teenagers like Vertigo and Elevation, I prefer a band with zero rock and zero attitude rather than that selling out MTV pap

You should write one incredibly long, arrogant spiel about the music industry and just copy/paste the most applicable parts over and over when necessary. Maybe you already do.

He didn't say overpromoted, he said over 'HYPED'.


I do think far far too many give Radiohead the untouchable treatment.

I don't think any band deserves the untouchable treatment; The Beatles, U2, Pink Floyd, Hanson... etc...

Hype IS promotion, whether it comes from the record company, commercials, or the mouths of the bands themselves. Radiohead's only complicity is giving interviews. It's not their fault critics and fans have put them on a pedestal, but the bottom line is, what band better deserves to be put on one? Fucking Wilco?

There are a serious lack of capital-A artists making music that is actually listenable and pleasing to the ear. We could use a lot more of them. Radiohead isn't the problem here; they're not perfect but they're still pushing the envelope. Even when they scale it back a bit they still get shit from detractors, so they really can't win here.
