Today marks the 10th anniversary of Radiohead’s ‘Kid A’. October 2nd, 2000 was the official release date of the band’s fourth album. ‘Kid A’ went platinum in the first week of release in the UK and is now considered a classic album in music history.
The year 2000; We all survived the millennium bug, but we were still waiting for Radiohead to release a follow-up for Radiohead’s third album: ‘OK Computer’. After the release of ‘OK Computer’ in 1997, Radiohead were considered one of the most important bands in (alternative) rock. An intensive tour followed in 1997 and 1998. Then it got rather quiet. But what would Radiohead come up with to surpass their album with classics like ‘Karma Police’, ‘No Surprises’ and ‘Paranoid Android’.
