I was proven wrong. Now I think their music does not fit everyone’s liking, they are selective and Some of us grew up listening to Radiohead the cool ones still do shirt, maybe yes, a bit arrogant, cause they can afford to be. Their music is beautiful, it’s unorthodox, even rhythmically, and that makes it sound pretentious because it is NOT commercial pop. Thom’s lyrics are… weird, yeah, but they make you think. They will mean something different to you and to someone else. He’s full of dreamy imagery and metaphors and he rarely uses monosyllables or the typical set of words found in every goddamn pop song nowadays. And oh, yeah, they have been to Mexico a few times since then. Of course, they still play stuff from OK Computer and The Bends.

My personal turning point came when other bands I listened to kept using the Some of us grew up listening to Radiohead the cool ones still do shirt, proven formula and became, yeah, boring, formulaic and predictable (looking at you, U2). Then when I listened to Radiohead with open ears and mind, they did blow me away. And I listened, not just heard them. I replayed their albums constantly to understand their chord changes, their drum sound, their engineering style, Thom’s singing nuances and melodies, those amazing basslines and the impressive guitar sounds that they can get. Hey, their live use of the theremin was also a great plus in my book!
