UPDATE 23th December 2010: OK Computer Named Best Album of the Past 25 Years by readers of Q Magazine, yay!
If you support the idea of having OK Computer as full album in the game, change your Avatar to the OKC Album Cover and show HMX how much you want it! Here is the link to the picture: http://1.music.bigpond-images.com/images/AlbumCoverArt/264/XXL/Ok-Computer2.jpg

People who already changed their Avatar to OK Computer: (Thanks!)

- I was asked to post some of the awards this album has gotten, so I will quote a post by TakeABow -
I won't post the full list of Radiohead's awards - There is a character limit to these posts, so here are the ones that pertain to OK Computer:
In 2001, OK Computer was ranked the #1 Album in the last 15 years by Q magazine.
A Reader's Poll for Q also placed OK Computer as #1 on the list for best Album of all time in 1998, 2006, and #2 in 2003
As of 2007, it has been certified triple platinum in the UK and double platinum in the US.
1998, it was nominated for a Grammy Award as Album of the Year, and won for Best Alternative Music Album.
Here is a list of rankings of OK Computer from a wide variety or sources, many of which rank the record quite highly.
It was on the shortlist for the 1997 Mercury Music Prize.
In 2001, Q Magazine placed it at number 1 in a list of the Top 100 albums of all time.
In 2003, NME named it the 16th greatest album of all time.
In 2003, Pitchfork Media placed it at number 1 in a list of Top 100 Albums of the 1990s.
In 2003, the album was ranked number 162 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
In 2005, it was selected by Spin Magazine as the number one album of the past 20 years.
In 2006, it was chosen by TIME Magazine as one of the 100 best albums of all time.
People would not be upset about Radiohead as DLC, and there is no doubt whatsoever that OK Computer would be recieved well. It is by no means Elevator Music - It is Alternative Rock, very high quality, well liked, and would be an excellent addition to Rock Band.
Okay, we all know that Creep is in the game. That's a nice song, and better than no Radiohead.

But just take a look in all that Radiohead Threads, almost everyone suggested one of the best songs ever written, Paranoid Android.

That's why I want your votes to get Radiohead's album OK Computer because this album does not only include Paranoid Android, but awesome songs like Karma Police, No Surprises, Electioneering, Airbag, Let Down, Lucky, Climbing Up The Walls or The Tourist!! Actually everything is just awesome on this album, and this album is a milestone in Rock History, it's one of the best albums ever written.
It would feel so great to play the whole album from beginning to end.

Help me to persuade HARMONIX that this album is NEEDED in the game!

And please don't vote "no" if you don't know Radiohead or their songs, just don't vote in this case. (or vote for yes :p )

Since this is more a poem than a song, HMX would of course have to exclude this:

    Hey, Bloc Party needs to be in this game as much as Radiohead. I'm just disappointed about the Creep announcement, that's why I started this thread.
  • edited August 2007
    This is seriously the worst Rock BAnd news Ive ever seen

    For an otherwise great sundtrack, Harmonix just dropped a mssive ****ing ball for me.

    Im extremely pissed. They could have picked ANY OTHER SONG of ANY OTHER ALBUM and I would have been happy.

    Creep is one of the worst songs Radiohead has ever made, and honestly its sad, but Im going to have to pretend Creep is not even in the game so I dont get pissed about it.

    I called up my friend and told him Radiohead was in the game. HE let out a huge "YESSS" then he saw Creep, which was followed by 30 seconds of silence, then a "****"
  • edited August 2007
    That being said... The Bends and OK Computer for DLC!
  • edited August 2007
    Oh and I just forgot they are going to make us sing "very special" isntead of "****ing special"

  • edited August 2007
    I almost wish they didnt announce Creep with those songs. The rest of the songs Im super pumped for, some of them Ive been waiting years to play.

    Its just when they pick your least favoirte song from your least favorite album from your favoirte band, you get kinda pissed.
  • edited August 2007
    Oh and this is going to be the most boring song ever on the drums. Its one beat the whole song.

    Its things like this that seriously make me think Harmonix didnt even listen to the songs before picking them.

    Like I couldnt think of more boring song on the drums.

    This is like a slap in the face for Radiohead fans.

    Like at least Metallica fans get DLC. To be honest us Radiohead fans know we probably wont get squat.

    Yeah, Sushi is sad.

    Actually, I like Creep. I think it's one of the best songs on the Rockband playlist.
    But I'm just kinda dissapointed, because there is a song like Paranoid Android, probably one of the best songs ever written, and then I see HMX puts a Radiohead song in it and it's NOT Paranoid Android?? I was shocked...

    And... I still miss The Cure, Bloc Party and Placebo. :(

    I don't understand your sense of entitlement regarding that band , Sushi. You're complaints dont strike me as being inany way productive:confused:

    sushi, relax bud. look, having Radiohead on there was priority #1. at the very least, this means they can get the rights to MORE Radiohead songs in the future. just look at it that way man. forget about creep. RB has Radiohead.

    oh, and i'm definitely with you on singing YOUR SO ****ING SPECIAL! i dont care if i lose vocal multiplier or whatever, its worth it (i would think as long as u say **** in the right pitch, prolly won't even matter).

    Sorry Sean, I got it through my system:)

    Now Im good. I knew this was going to happen anyways, and I knew I was going to be a bitch about it.

    Ive never said anything bad about the Rock Band setlist before this, so maybe Im just making a big deal because I was so happy about everything the setlist besides Creep.

    *Teakes deep breath*

    Ok Im good.

    OKC for DLC:D

    Oh man, I did not expect that post when I looked in here.

    Creep, like Enter Sandman, is fine. I'm almost 100% sure there'll be more Radiohead.

    Probably, I just fear it could be the album with Creep on it and not Ok Computer. But I still need Paranoid Android.

    I wouldn't worry about getting Pablo Honey as DLC out of all Radiohead albums there are. Everybody knows PH is the worst, but I have to admit that Creep is the best song from that first album. (For the record, I think The Bends would be great.)

    I'm happy Radiohead are in (as are some other good bands) and that this means there might be more from them in the future! :-)

    I just wish it wouldn't have been that one self-loathing song you'll have to sing with your friends present.

    Paranoid Android is a pretty good song. I've now seen two custom versions on youtube, seems to be a nice play too. :-)

    I remember seeing Radiohead when they supported James years ago. Creep blew me away and I still remember the hairs on the back of my neck standing up. Scores a 10 on the nostalgia scale for me. Might not be the most challenging song to play, but it'll still be great. I'm looking forward to doing the vocals on this one.

    If I had to choose an album to DL, I'd go for the bends. If I had to choose only one song, it'd be Paranoid Android.
  • ColdplayerColdplayer Headliner
    edited August 2007
    I guess I have to listen to Bends.

    I still like the whole Ok Computer album a lot. No Surprises is such a beautiful song too!

    But, actually, yeah I can live without the whole album, as long as Paranoid Android will be available. That's a MUST. No Surprises and Karma Police would be nice too though. And maybe Let Down.

    Did you ever think that maybe Radiohead would only let them use Creep?

    I highly doubt it, but its possible. Then again that song has been used in an anime show.

    I cannot imaging. The band has stated (at least Thom any ways) that they don't even like that song any more. I don't see why then they would even want/allow it to be used. :confused:

    That would not make sense. And yeah, Paranoid Android was the outro of the Anime ERGO PROXY (awesome Anime btw), and Radiohead actually took a look at the Anime before they allowed the song to be used.

    Anyway, if they like the game and allow them to use Creep, they probably will allow them to use Paranoid Android too.
    Of course, could be that they don't want too many songs to be used, so maybe we won't get the whole album.
    At least, it has to be Paranoid Android.

    I actually only recently started listening to Radiohead/OK Computer and I have to say it is a very good album and I wouldn't mind it being DLC at all, it would be really cool. I especially like the song Electioneering.
