RADIOHEAD INDUCTED INTO ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME
The members of Radiohead have been surprised to learn of the band’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2019.
The band thanks the Hall of Fame voting body and extends congratulations to this year’s fellow inductees.
2018 marked 25 years since the release of Radiohead’s debut album, Pablo Honey, and Radiohead’s eligibility for the Hall of Fame. Additional Radiohead albums released during the 1990s included included The Bends (1995) and OK Computer (1997), the latter being the first Radiohead record to reach #1 in the UK and to be nominated for the Album of the Year GRAMMY. In 2000, Radiohead’s fourth album, Kid A, became the strangest #1 album in U.S. chart history, and was followed by Amnesiac in 2001, Hail to the Thief in 2003, and 2007’s brilliant In Rainbows, which was also nominated for the Album of the Year GRAMMY. In 2011, Radiohead released its eighth album, The King Of Limbs, and in 2015, The National Recording Registry selected OK Computer to be preserved in the Library of Congress as a recording that has proven “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” A Moon Shaped Pool, the ninth Radiohead album, was released in 2016 to one of the most positive receptions of the band’s career. In 2017, Radiohead commemorated the 20th anniversary of OK Computer with the OK Computer OKNOTOK 1997 – 2017 deluxe remaster/reissue.
Radiohead is Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, Colin Greenwood, Ed O’Brien, and Philip Selway.
