Thread: RADIOHEAD VS. NIRVANA via RS

  1. #1

    Default RADIOHEAD VS. NIRVANA via RS

    Rolling Stone has a debate going over the better album of the 90's and it appears its turned into more of a better band debate at RS.com. Check it out. It appears that we were right all along. Not only is Radiohead better than Nirvana, they are probably the best all around band of all time.

    check the link:

    http://www.rollingstone.com/rockdail...-vs-radiohead/


    Oh and yes, I will say it again.

    Lieutenant:

    Given your 'of all time' claim, you may be surprised to learn that the universe was not created in the year 1990.

    Radiohead is so much better than any of those old Miles Davis Quintet featuring John Coltrane recordings. So much more influential too. Or that Brid and Biz record. Cornerstone of modern jazz ppff tev.

    I read the title of this thread, and I was thinking this has to be menik-bait. Apparently not.

    I suspected as much, mob, but it was rather clumsy, as you say. So clumsy, in fact, I have been trying to ferret out some sort of meaning so that I might offer a coherent response.

    No, Lieutenant, I never saw the Beatles live either.

    Radiohead over Nirvana easily. Radiohead is the band of the 90s.

    I love Radiohead. I really do. They probably are in my top 5. Or at least my top 10. Of all time. yep. In fact not too long on this board I got yelled at for saying Radiohead is better than Hendrix. More inventive than Hendrix. yep.

    but I don't see them being better than the Beatles. Two main differences. 1. the beatles could effortlessly whip out melodies, just one of which could have totally made a lesser bands' career (see Oasis). Radiohead's melodies are good but not as consistently good. 2. the Beatles wrote human songs for human beings. Maybe if Thom and Jonny could get over their disillusion and ennui long enough to write just one love song (or something) they'd be a better band for it. Maybe.

    I like them both, but the only difference is, Nirvana never got the acclaim get to their heads and release unlistenable snobby records afterwards like Radiohead's post-OK Computer records.

    Radiohead was great when they were pop. Then they thought their shit didn't stink and released dogshit records like Kid A.

    Nivana never let the acclaim go to their heads because they blew their heads off instead.

    Radiohead is the modern day Emerson, Lake & Palmer.

    well put. TomAZ

    and I think Thom is truly on the brink of that. Some of their songs I would say can be considered love songs...just not as obvious perhaps. For some reason I feel the love there..maybe not romantic love, or peaceful idealistic love, but maybe a concerned for human-ness love, or lets not be distracted by bullshit kinda love..tough love?

    personally thats the kinda love people seem to need these days ya know. The 60's were a beautiful thing, but laying in bed taking press conferences stood for something but didnt exactly piss anybody off about the truth. "gimme some truth" just Thom style I guess.

    uh, I think that was 1970. and yeah that was over the top. but that's a publicity stunt not the actual music. Love the art not the artist.

    I do understand what you're saying about Thom's music and I do get the same sense out of many of their songs. It still seems a bit.. well like you said it's not quite there yet.

    Radiohead is the modern day Emerson, Lake & Palmer.
    Oh Jeff.
