Radiohead are an English rock band from Oxfordshire, initially formed in the mid-1980s under the name On a Friday. Radiohead's lineup has remained the same since their inception, with Thom Yorke (vocals/rhythm guitar/piano/electronics), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar/ondes martenot/keyboards), Ed O'Brien (guitar/backing vocals), Colin Greenwood (bass/synthesizers) and Phil Selway (drums/percussion).
Radiohead released their first single, "Creep" in 1992, followed by their debut album Pablo Honey (1993). The song was an unexpected worldwide hit, and the band were widely branded as a one-hit wonder. However, Radiohead met with success at home in the United Kingdom with their second album, The Bends (1995), earning fans with dense guitar atmospheres and frontman Thom Yorke's falsetto singing. Radiohead's third album propelled them to greater attention; popular for an expansive sound and themes of modern alienation, OK Computer (1997) was named a landmark record of the 1990s by many critics.
