    You know what, I think even Arcade Fire might agree at this stage.

    obviously arcade fire..radiohead have been around since the 90's and have made the best albums of the decade...they haven't made one bad album..they live up to the hype...radiohead keep coming back with a new album and another reason they are one of the greatest bands of the decade....everyone is all hung up on the whole indie thing...MY VOTE IS RADIOHEAD....even though thom yorke looks kinda like a hobo

    P.S. TEAM WAYNE COYNE....

    Radiohead clearly

    they're not that good, if they were they would be considered a household name

    people like them because they're weird and odd

    Arcade Fire actually make good music, and can play their instruments properly

    in all honest, it's 2011 and i can't believe people are still listening to Radiohead

    You don't play an instrument do you? And music isnt just about a straight forward rock song. Radiohead nails atmosphere, lyrics, melody, experimentation, and craft quite well. Arcade Fire is good, but Radiohead is on a completely different level.

    Easily some of the dumbest opinions about music I've read on this thread. Oh well, it once again proves there's no accounting for taste...

    I tried for so long to hate both Radiohead and Arcade Fire, just based upon the fact that I am weary of any band or artist that receives massively annoying amounts of media attention. Even with this wall of snobbery I have built around myself, I have grown to love both of these bands (although initially against my own will)

    Final Verdict:
    Radiohead is musically more sophisticated and genre sculpting. FTW!

    Did you watch the Grammys? Nobody knows who The Suburbs are. And that's a stupid reason to hate a band. It's actually kinda weird to try to hate any band.

    These bands became mainstream at a time when I was a young, ignorant, wannabe pseudo-intellectual punk elitist. Unfortunately, it's really not that uncommon, so I don't see why you find it to be so weird. I obviously have seen the stupidity in my ways and have a broader sense of musical appreciation, as I was hoping to convey by using the phrase "wall of snobbery".

    And yeah, "genre-sculpting" was pretty lame. I knew in hindsight that someone would poo-poo me. I think I'll go back to my safe and beloved method of hard-core lurking. Cheers.

    This thread makes me sad. It's just perpetuating the irrational hate for both of these amazing bands.

    I'm not upset, just responding. I could have pulled a "ur just jelos bcuz ur a hateir" or something quintessentially lurker-ish along those lines. Alas, I have more respect for the boardies than that, and it hurts my brain to type like Lotus.

    No, due to incredibly unreliable friends, I missed out on '09. I did see them a few months ago at the Belly Up in San Diego, which was indescribable. Exine is enduringly bad ass and the whole performance was so superb, I was almost on the verge of tears a few times. Utterly legendary musicians in the truest sense.
