10 Greatest Ever Radiohead Songs

From On a Friday to one of the most successful alternative bands of all time.

XL Recordings

The Radiohead from the early 1990s and the Radiohead now are essentially two completely different bands. The former were on the brink of getting lost in the never ending pool of grunge-inspired bands, whilst the latter are an entirely singular experience.

With each member willing to take one for the team on occasion and experiment with new sounds at every opportunity, Radiohead have cultivated a discography that is almost un rivalled in alternative music. Despite their constant need to challenge themselves as well as their listeners, they have still managed to remain at the forefront of popular music for almost three decades now. They've sold more than 30 million albums worldwide.

Over the years, Radiohead have drawn inspiration from a wide range of musical styles. From jazz to ambient, from electronica to hip hop and from classical to pop, they have never pigeonholed themselves or allowed anyone else to do so.

Just how diverse in sound and lyrical content these next ten songs are will show just how many different phases the band have gone through in their career, and how their genius has stood the test of time.

Whittling their entire discography down to a measly 10 tracks seems like an injustice, but we're going to give it a go regardless.
