Big Ideas: Seven Great Radiohead Covers

As one of the most innovative popular bands in recent years, Radiohead has become highly respected and admired by not only fans, but musicians as well. With that territory, comes tons of very talented bands taking their stabs at Radiohead songs, which is no easy task. Take a look around YouTube and you’ll find dozens of failed experiments at taking on Thom Yorke and company’s trademark blend of rock, electronic, and pop music. Luckily, there are at least 7 who have succeeded, and the videos are below. [Note: This is the only time I will present John Mayer in a positive light.]

Gnarls Barkley – Reckoner

Punch Brothers – 2+2=5

Bat for Lashes – All I Need

John Mayer – Kid A

Obadiah Parker – Idioteque

Damien Rice – The Blower’s Daughter/Creep

Hanson – Optimistic
