Convince me otherwise...
Suicide rocks. Try it.
But seriously, if you aren't convinced already, you never will. Develop taste, that is.
I could see Pete being the teacher for a debate class: "I'll just play devil's advocate here... Radiohead sucks... convince me otherwise"
Alright... I regret the screen name.
At some point in time a man switches from "I'll have what he's having" to "I'll have what I'm having."
whew, one less guy to battle for radiohead tickets....
I'm a reasonable man, get off my case.
I don't know, Pete. You've presented such a cogent and bulletproof argument of your own position, I think all of us Radiohead fans are now seriously reconsidering our love of the band.
"I think Radiohead sucks." Man, can't argue with that logic.
Maybe Pete just liked my response after he said Morrissey sucks. He doesnt want to go on my ignore list. ANYWAY, back on topic. I am on my break so I thought I would check in. While Pete goes through his last days of high school I'll post these questions.
What dont you "get"?
What songs do you like from them?
What songs dont you like?
How long have you been listening to them?
Have you ever seen them live?
Do you feel their fanbase or anyone else is just kissing their asses for no good reason?
Is their music just too ''progressive'' and ''out there'' that your brain cant comprehend, thus the rejection?
Does Thoms eye scare you?
Which albums have you listened to?
What just made you think they suck?
Who is ''worthy'' of being your ''Radiohead''?(dont say arcade fire)
Do you like Coldplay more cause Chris Martin has a hot wife?
Did you ever consider suicide and Radiohead pushed you to do so because they ''suck'' so much?
If you could make a suggestion to the band regarding their next album and what music is going to end up on it, what would you say?
The gauntlet has been set, lets see what you got.
i have never gotten around to acquiring a Radiohead album
i have never seen them live
i dont KNOW whether or not "their fanbase or anyone else is just kissing their asses for no good reason" thats why i asked the question dumbshit
their "progressive" music is just plain pretentious to me, its not that i dont understand it
as i explained i have no reason to think they suck, i have barely ever herd a song from them. i only said that to get a response from radiohead fans in defense of Radiohead
i haven't chosen a "radiohead" yet...i dont think any music is worth obsessing and pouring over
there happy now?
as it has become apparent i know close to nothing about radiohead, i only wanted to know why people think they're so great
Download a fucking album or two, you lazy whore. OK Computer and Kid A, specifically.
I think that I should weight in on the discussion here. And I'm not going to lie here......................
that is all
Somewhat, the answers quoted above have some contradictions. How do you know what they are saying and coming from if you dont have an album or barely heard a song from them? How is the music pretentious if you havent listened to their pretentious records? I'll let the live thing slide of course since you are a little baby, but still. There is plenty of music worth obsessiong over, you just dont want to take the chance of backing the wrong horse. Loyalty is a strong thing and this band has it with their fans. They will stand by their words because they believe in the music and what it does to them and how its affected lots of other things. Before you even started to ask us our thoughts you shouldve done your homework. Go download The Bends, OK Computer and Kid A, listen until you get tired of it and come back to us. I'll even give you links to download if that helps.
Now I will give you my answer. Being a long time fan(15 years and counting) theres been lots of history in my life with this band. I have been trying to make up for lost time on seeing them live but I think thats my only fault with them. Its moving music, you listen to it over and over and sometimes you hear something you didnt before. You get a visual of whats being said and conveyed in the lyrics. Thom writes some good words if you ever took the time to read them. They are not where they are within the music scene because they just played to the masses and did their bidding. I could care less now if they ever played Creep again, because I have seen it performed and thats that, lets move on ya know? They have been 10 steps ahead of the game for a while. When they put an album out, everyone listens because its a big deal. People wonder what they will do next, will they go all electronic? Maybe some more jazz? Will they return to the guitar work that propelled them into the limelight? Hail To The Thief was pretty good I think, but for me that album was made to be played live. They had finally gotten over all the s**t that happend post Ok Computer and what made Kid A and Amnesiac good albums. They got "happy" and you could see it a bit. I loved the last tour, because being able to be the guinea pigs for what would be the next album is just awesome. It was the longest week of my life. I laughed, I cried, I lost immense sleep. I had to readjust to "normal" life after all of it ended. I couldnt even believe it went by so fast, yet time stood still. In any blog I wrote about that whole week I never spoke of the show and the music, because in my eyes I couldnt find words to express what went through my mind, my heart, my body for those 2 hours they were on stage every night. When you find pieces of music that can do that to you, you hold on and cherish it because you know there wont be something like that created ever again. Hope that helps, now get to downloading.
Great, now I might not even get one if you got #687, crap. Picture of it woudl be cool if you would be so kind.

some people just don't like certain bands. i dislike Nirvana, aww im rich but sad : (, and i dislike the Beatles..
assuming you finished.
and yet we still wonder why the smart people aren't breeding as fast as the wal mart set. who wants to bring up kids in a world where sentences like this are allowed to exist? so depressing. really.
I didn't like Radiohead when I was sixteen . But that was one year before I stopped watching MTV forever. So that goes to tell you what my mindset was. I was watching MTV for fucks sake.
Some people never grow up, eh Pineapple.
I didn't like Radiohead before Coachella 04. I was bored by it. Then I listened to The Bends numerous times before the festival (in an effort to get into them). The other stuff fell into place after that.
Radiohead is my fifth favorite band of all time.
