Radiohead

Paranoid Android Multitrack Cover

Paranoid Android Multitrack Cover

PAB_Music pulls off a impressively accurate cover version of Radiohead’s 1997 classic, performing each of its instrumental and vocal parts, then layering them together. He previously worked his magic on Under Pressure and Where the Streets Have No Name.

Reggie Watts Does Radiohead

Reggie Watts Does Radiohead

A bit from a 2012 Central Park performance by Reggie Watts in which he replicated the esoteric and offbeat sounds of Thom Yorke and the gang from Radiohead. It’s so spot-on that some are calling it a “cover” rather than a “parody.” Download or stream the track here.

Thom Yorke: Everything In Its Right Place

Thom Yorke: Everything In Its Right Place

At BBC Radio 1’s Piano Sessions, Thom Yorke performed Radiohead’s Everything In Its Right Place from their 2000 album Kid A. He also played a version of Suspirium, one of his tracks from his score of the Suspiria remake.

Thom Yorke: Hands off the Antarctic

Creep: Bossa Nova Edition

Creep: Bossa Nova Edition

(PG-13: Lyrics) Myrtle Beach, SC group Oracle Blue presents a fresh take on Radiohead’s 1993 hit track Creep, giving it a polished and jazzy new sound, headlined by the buttery smooth vocals of Liz Kelley-Tavernier and a wonderful flute solo by J.P. Taylor.

Paranoid Android Brass Edition

Paranoid Android Brass Edition

Radiohead’s 1997 classic Paranoid Android always cuts deep when we hear it, and it’s as power-packed as ever with this amazing cover version by UK band Old Dirty Brasstards. The trumpet does a surprisingly good job standing in for Thom Yorke’s vocals.

High and Dry: Fingerstyle Cover

High and Dry: Fingerstyle Cover

Musician Jon Gomm presents an acoustic guitar cover of Radiohead’s 1995 track High and Dry that will pull you in and won’t let go. If you liked what you heard, be sure to check out Passionflower, which put him on the map for his ability to retune his guitar while performing.

Foster the Radiohead

Foster the Radiohead

Tricked out in its current full band incarnation, Pomplamoose has been cranking out some great tracks, the latest being this unlikely, but just perfect mashup of Foster the People’s Pumped up Kicks and Radiohead’s Everything In Its Right Place.

Paranoid Android Cello Cover

Paranoid Android Cello Cover

We recently came across this amazing arrangement of Radiohead’s hit Paranoid Android, performed as a series of layered cello tracks by musician George Durham, with the string instrument taking on duties of both the melodic and rhythmic parts of the 1996 classic.

No Surprises Acoustic Cover

No Surprises Acoustic Cover

A fantastic cover version of Radiohead’s 1997 classic No Surprises, showcasing the enthralling vocals and musical minimalism of Italy’s Cristina And The Other One. Check out their YouTube channel for a few other great covers, including Yazoo’s Only You.

Radiohead White Noise

Radiohead White Noise

Since this video by Green Grass dates back to 2011, it doesn’t include Radiohead’s most recent albums, but it’s still fascinating to hear the soothing sounds you get when you play every song the band recorded between Pablo Honey and Supercollider/The Butcher simultaneously.

Karma Police: Trombone Cover

Karma Police: Trombone Cover

Musician Vladimir Peña presents a wonderfully different, and highly captivating cover version of Radiohead’s 1997 classic track Karma Police, performed in four part harmony on his trombone. For a minute there, we lost ourselves… we lost ourselves.

Blue Planet II : The Prequel

Blue Planet II : The Prequel

BBC Earth returns to the seas 16 years after The Blue Planet, but with the today’s camera tech, it’s sure to blow our minds like Planet Earth II did. The 5-minute short teases us with some of the incredible sights to come, and is set to a soundtrack by Hans Zimmer and Radiohead.

Scott Bradlee: Karma Police

To coincide with the 20th anniversary of OK Computer, Scott Bradlee (of Postmodern Jukebox fame) performed a great solo piano arrangement of Radiohead’s 1997 track Karma Police. Like what you heard? Be sure to check out his Paranoid Android improv video too.

Radiohead: Paranoid Android (Live)

Radiohead: Paranoid Android (Live)

Radiohead headlined the first night of the TRNSMT 2017 music fest in Glasgow. Their 2.5h set included this performance of Paranoid Android, which BBC Music was kind enough to share. Check out more videos from TRNSMT here and here.

Weezer: Paranoid Android

Weezer: Paranoid Android

We’re not sure how we missed this incredible Radiohead cover when Weezer recorded it 2011, but we figured some of you might have missed it too. One commenter said Rivers singing Thom’s part was “Like seeing Woody Allen in a Batman movie.” We agree, but in a good way.

Creep: Funk Cover

Creep: Funk Cover

Scary Pockets shared this awesome funk arrangement of Radiohead’s 1993 classic Creep, brought to life by the smooth and soulful vocals of India Carney. If the guy on the Wurlitzer looks familiar, that’s Jack Conte, better known as half of Pomplamoose.

“Even when the ship is wrecked, I promise. Tie me to the rotten deck, I promise.” A disembodied android head takes in the sights of the city from the back of a bus in the music video for I Promise, a previously unreleased track from OK Computer.

Radiohead Piano Covers

Radiohead Piano Covers

Musician Josh Cohen has a thing for performing cover versions of Radiohead tunes on his grand piano. Each and every one of the tracks will pull you in and won’t let go with its quiet intensity. We can’t decide if Everything In Its Right Place or Daydreaming is our favorite.

VSQ: True Love Waits

Another great cover by the Vitamin String Quartet. This time we’ve got Radiohead’s True Love Waits, which they recorded as well as Burn the Witch. If they sound familiar, that’s because they also recorded Motion Picture Soundtrack for Westworld.

Creep: Metal Cover

Creep: Metal Cover

(PG-13: Language) Radiohead’s original version already had a pretty good edge to it, but if you wait for the chorus to kick in, Leo Moracchioli’s metal cover kicks things up a notch or two, with an extra dose of angst and screaming.

Radiohead: Present Tense

Radiohead: Present Tense
$1.29  Buy Link Comment

You’ll want to put on your best pair of headphones, turn down the lights, and drink in Paul Thomas Anderson’s stripped down video of Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, and a vintage Roland CR-78 performing Present Tense from their album A Moon Shaped Pool.

Radiohead c. 1993

Radiohead c. 1993

More than 20 years ago, Radiohead appeared on an unlikely stage – MTV’s Beach House – turning in performances of their classics Creep and Anyone Can Play Guitar, and transfixing what would have normally been a rowdy group of college kids with their hard-edged alt-rock.

Burn The Witch: Cello Cover

Burn The Witch: Cello Cover

A fantastically rich and layered cover version of Radiohead’s recent track Burn The Witch, played on cello and cajón by Break of Reality. Seriously, we’d love to hear Thom Yorke’s vocals combined with these guys performance.

Radiohead Plays Creep Again

Radiohead Plays Creep Again

It’s been 7 years since Radiohead played their breakout hit song Creep for a live audience, but on 5/23/16 they broke that moratorium and played it live during their A Moon Shaped Pool tour at Le Zénith, in Paris, France. Watch the full concert here.

AMSP features new tracks like Daydreaming and Burn the Witch and new versions of old songs, with the band’s trademark unsettling rhythms and sounds amidst harmonious strings. Also available as lossless WAV, CD or vinyl. Video by Paul Thomas Anderson.

Radiohead: Burn the Witch

Radiohead: Burn the Witch

After wiping out their entire internet presence earlier this week, Radiohead is back with a bang. Here’s the debut music video from their forthcoming album; a sinister stop-motion short by Chris Hopewell in which a peaceful village is home to some rather nasty rituals.

No Kazoos and No Surprises

No Kazoos and No Surprises

An oddly soothing (and just plain odd) cover of Radiohead’s 1997 dark societal commentary No Surprises played entirely on kazoo. The fact that it took over 5 years for the internet to discover this video is astounding.

Radiohead: Spectre

Radiohead: Spectre

Before they decided to go with Sam Smith, it seems that the theme song for James Bond’s Spectre was going to be sung by Radiohead. As a holiday gift, the band released the track for free. It’s an awesome Radiohead song, but Thom Yorke is still no Adele or Shirley Bassey.

Prince: Creep

Prince: Creep

A long lost performance from Prince’s 2008 Coachella appearance – an oh so special cover of Radiohead’s Creep. The clip had been removed due to copyright issues, but now even Prince himself seems to approve. The video quality stinks, but it’s the music that counts.
