This week 20 years ago, Radiohead released their eagerly awaited third album, OK Computer. It was June 1997, the UK was still in the throes of Britpop with Oasis and Blur leading the charge. Yes, people were expecting a lot from Radiohead. Their second album, The Bends, was quietly released to an almost zero fan base in 1995. Yet with each single release, its impact slowly grew to show the world that they still deserved to be here.
Yes, the world of music bows its collective head in deference to all fathers around the world today – and we are no exception. Dads the world over have inspired or written many a rock and pop song about their kids. But instead of the usual cheesy Top 10 Father’s Day songs you’ll find on other websites, most of our anthems tell dark, mournful or grim tales of betrayal. Most, that is – not all. We have a few gems in here. Why not check out what made our Top 10 Father’s Day Songs list and see for yourselves?
As part of the 20th anniversary celebrations for Radiohead’s OK Computer album, we decided to make a list of our top 6 Radiohead songs, comprising their best ever OKNOTOK moments.
It’s the 50th anniversary re-issue of The Beatles Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band this week, so we’re asking the killer question: Is Sgt. Pepper’s the best Beatles album of all time? Nathan Brooks put forward his review of the Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album, and disagreed. Why then is it called the best Beatles album of all time by thousands of fans and why, as Nathan rightly asks in his review, wasn’t Revolver given a similar celebration last year? There are lots of other key Beatles albums, which is why we decided to write our list of the Top 5 Beatles albums here.

Music For The Jilted Generation came two years after The Prodigy’s debut album, Experience. Although it was a debut very much of its time, Experience has so many layers and facets to it, so much awareness of the type of samples used, that you cannot just dismiss it as ‘kiddy rave’. AC/DC mingles with LuLu, Kate Bush with Aswad, Run DMC and Arthur Brown. It’s all chaotic, hyper experimental and very, very British. The large succession of single releases from Experience meant that critics did write it and the band off though.
