Radiohead - the Bends is 20

Radiohead's second album The Bends came out 20 years ago. It's widely regarded as one of the best albums ever and it's certainly one of my all time favourites. Many people have summarized the significance and wide-ranging influence of this album better than I ever could so I'll just put up some of my favourites from this alternative music classic. I focused on live versions for most of these tunes.

The full album:

"Planet Telex"

"The Bends" from Jools Holland

"High and Dry" from Jools Holland

"Fake Plastic Trees"



"My Iron Lung"

"Black Star"

"Street Spirit (Fade Out)"
