Talent-wise, I would probably agree that Radiohead is the best of all time.

i'd go with creativity-wise, they change there sound almost with every album

of course, I would say objectivley they compete with Nirvana for the top in the 90's and 2000's.

You mean as far as how influential each band is? I'd agree with that, but as far as just the best bands of the 90's and 2000's, while I went through a Nirvana phase, Radiohead is in a different league.

Nirvana was cut short, so we'll never know if we can compare Nirvana in the same "league" as Radiohead. In terms of Influence at least, if Nirvana could keep up the momentum, then i think we'd have a different story.

You are certainly right that they were cut short and that we'll never know. I still feel safe saying that Nirvana was never going to write and Ok Computer or Kid A. Their influential status is unquestionable though.

I would agree that Nirvana wasn't ever going to write a Ok Computer or Kid A, that is for sure, in this thread about "wondering where they would have gone" togepi brought up a pretty good point regarding where Nirvana probalby would have gone. I'm not sure that it's really applies here, so i won't mention it. But I pretty much agree with your post haha.

Never really been much of a Radiohead fan but lately they're all I've been listening to. Only listed to Ok Computer, In Rainbows, and The Bends. Can't wait to get deeper into their discography. All 3 I've listened to are incredible

I'm sure it was a good point. He makes those.

Anyway, I need to see Radiohead. I am regrettably yet to.

Yeah, OK Computer is probably my third favourite album, but OK Computer isn't nearly as good. OK Computer >>> OK Computer.

That's how good Radiohead are. They're better than themselves.

Radiohead > Radiohead
