    I am also not interested in going to live shows and stuff. I generally like to listen to one of my favorite songs while driving or while drinking tea and eating snacks. Or I just sit and listen while I make some good stories(not any dirty ones,just psychological and philosophical ones) in my mind.

    personally not a fan of Radiohead. Sounds like a pretty generic pop rock to me, similar to Coldplay, which is another generic boring band. I think Muse is a the more talented and interesting band

    I also like Muse. Absolution is a good album, Butterflies and hurricanes, and hysteria are very nice.
    Now lets talk about Radiohead,
    If you only listened to Pablo honey you may think that Radiohead is generic. But I do not know how can you say Radiohead is generic after listening to OK Computer, Kid A and In Rainbows. Also A moon shaped pool is amazing too.
    And again I do not think Radiohead is pop rock. They do not have pleasant enough or simple enough stuff that is easy to make or easy for ears to be considered pop rock.
    Imagine Dragons could be classified as pop rock and I am not insulting imagine dragons.

    I haven't listened to them much. I know just the hits that were played on the radio etc. And let us just say, that I was not impressed sufficiently to explore any further

    You are missing out the main magnificent stuff of Radiohead my friend, seriously!! The hits on the Radio are way different from the amazing stuff they released after The Bends. You seriously need to check out OK computer, Kid A and In Rainbows.
    Even Muse are inspired by Radiohead. Come on... just give them a chance man.

    OK, I will, although I haven't been listening to much rock lately (since I switched to classical music).

    I listen to classical music too, but I also listen to music from many other genres. Otherwise I will probably burn out by listening to only one genre or one type of music.
    And I generally look for music with very high scores since there are a lot of songs or soundtracks which are getting released all around the world. I look at rym/sputnik/metacritic, youtube reviews and a few website reviews and I look at both critical and user reviews. And then I select an album which I listen or buy. Reviews are generally kind of helpful in selecting high quality stuff.

    I'm jealous that you just got to listen to them for the first time. I was introduced in about 2003 when I borrowed a few CDs from a friend. It took a while but when I got Ok Computer it absolutely blew me away, like nothing else I had ever heard.

    I think where Thom Yorke is also underrated are his lyrics. He's no Cohen, but there are a number of songs that stab you right through the heart.

    Overall I agree with you, I'd say Radiohead is one of, if not, the most successful bands artistically and commercially of the past 30 years. I can't think of anyone who's surpassed them in both integrity, influence, and financial success.

    Now only if I could go back and relive the small venue show I saw of them in 2006 at the Hammersmith in London, England, when they were testing out In Rainbows songs.

    I seriously wish sometimes that Pink Floyd should have stayed together or they should reunite. But it seems Pink Floyd is over. And Roger and David are also not even friends anymore.

    Oh yeah... Holy ****! I forgot about them. Yeah I did check out swans and they are very good. But their music cannot be listened to while driving or something ;P .

    I listened to their song called "Everybody hurts". It made me cry(silently). I also heard that Radiohead and R.E.M are friends. I will check out the whole Automatic for the people album.
    I think I will probably like it.
