Radiohead = Extreme
I liked Radiohead's first mainstream song "Creep". Then they said "Hey! That's not our real sound! We're some other band entirely!"

I liked Extreme's first mainstream song "More Than Words". Then they said "Hey! That's not our real sound! We're some other band entirely!"

It's not really bait-and-switch, because I don't think there was anything underhanded going on.

But when a band disavows the style that attracted me to them in the first place, I cut 'em loose.

I feel better now that I've gotten that off my chest.

Heh.

1. Opposite here - didn't care for Radiohead's first....they got me with The Bends, though!
They do morph and reinvent themselves well. My favorites are OK Computer and In Rainbows....

2. I always liked Creep, but could never get into them until this new King Of Limbs...
Then I started going backward.

3. And King of Limbs isn't an easy one to start on, though it really grows on you.
You may find Amnesiac and Kid A the most challenging - I still do....

4. Funny how different people are. King of Limbs was and instant
favorite. Then I listened to Amnesiac. My BF kept trying to get me into Kid A first and I kept getting bored after the first 4 songs. But it's growing on me now. Getting myself ready for the tour next year.

5. That's what's great about the arts - all up to individual perception - no wrong answers!
Right now my go-to bands are Arcade Fire and The National....aside from Radiohead. Always looking for good stuff - we listen to Radio Paradise much of the day (great free streaming radio station) and get lots of good ideas from that.

6. Not me... I certainly expect Humans to Reconsider
especially when it comes to expression and art.

7. Cover version of Creep
The Senti-Mentals - Creep.wmv : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDTb4uKy2Jg

The Senti-Mentals are a UK neo doo wop band. Their lead singer is Paul aka The Odd Eccentric. He's actually a poet and writes the songs for his other band which has played local to me in Watford for 25 years or so : The Odd Eccentric who also have stuff on youtube recorded at mainly at the pub..

That track was on a CD over 10 years ago. A second CD which had lain dormant for 10 years was only released 2010'ish. This track is off the second one : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDTb4uKy2Jg They only do extremely rare live perfromances these days whereas they played the 100 Club monthly back in late '90s.

Back to Creep - they performed that live back in about 2001 at Radiohead's home base pub in Oxford , obviously without the strings , and it went down really well with Radiohead's local supporters.
