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?
