On this day in 1992: Creep released

by Jonathan on September 21, 2010

It was on this day in 1992 that Radiohead’s U.K. record label released “Creep” as the first official release from the band. While Radiohead is one of the biggest bands in the world today, “Creep” did not initially do too well. In fact, it wasn’t until the end of 1992 that the song started getting attention. First in Israel and then in America when a DJ at San Francisco’s Live 105 started playing the song. “Creep” was re-released in 1993 and became the huge hit that it was. Legend has it that Jonny Greenwood disliked the song and attempted to sabotage it by thrashing his guitar during the chorus. Little did he know that this actually made the song.

Do you remember the first time you had heard Radiohead? Was it this song? What were you doing in 1992?

Respect.

Wow, just wow.

Radiohead's Pablo Honey advertisement

I’m sure the folks at Capitol sent this out as a response to the Beavis and Butt-Head episode where they watched “Creep.”

Amanda Palmer to release Radiohead Covers EP

by Jonathan on May 26, 2010

Amanda PalmerEx-Dresden Doll Amanda Palmer probably thought to herself, “Hey, Regina Spektor is covering Radiohead, I should too!” Okay, probably not. Anyway, there’s no denying that people love to cover Radiohead songs and Palmer is no different. In an email to her fans, she wrote:

“i’m going to unveil my NEW ALBUM PROJECT, which *might* be an EP, and it *might* be an EP of radiohead songs, and i *might* be playing those radiohead songs on a magical instrument like, oh, a little ukulele.”

Rumor has it that the EP should be slated for a Summer release. In the meantime, check out videos of her covering “Exit Music (For a Film),” “Creep,” and “Fake Plastic Trees” after the jump.
