Muse and Coldplay are often accused of sounding like a cheapo version of Radiohead.

Those are the only two examples I can think of also. I think Muse are very good, Coldplay are shit. Either way I think it's demeaning to Radiohead for that to be said.

To answer the question: There are no bands like Radiohead.

Yep. Coldplay just took the ''High & Dry'' system and ran with it, Muse sound like a couple of shoegazers trying and failing to play ''Airbag''.

Pavement I guess are sort of similar. Although less prog and more grunge influenced, and with a very, very different vocalist. But they're worth getting into anyway.

The Beta Band have a tune or two..test the water by listening to their eponymous album, it's pretty good. They're not a sound-a-like band, but they are willing to try something different a la Radiohead.

It's not meant to be aggressive etc. However you seem to be making Radiohead seem legendary (directed generally). I agree there very good, but that good?

There is no other band like Radiohead, but then that could be said of Bloc Party, why do you want to listen to the same thing again?

Hahaha, comparing Radiohead to Bloc Party. Good one. There are many more bands that can be considered to be like Bloc Party than any who can claim to be "like" Radiohead, because there genuinely are none.

Radiohead are legendary, where have you been for the past decade?

But no, nobody's putting them on any pedestal that they don't deserve to be on.

I don't think they're anything like Radiohead.

They're an amazing band though, saw them live last month. Was phenomenal.

What planet do you people live on lol. Radiohead just dont cut it as Legendary, they come close. - sure its an opinion but you don't list great bands like Led Zeppelin, The Who, Black Sabbath, Radiohead...

All in all they don't have that 'greatness' quality, sure its for a different audience, but Tom York? He hasnt got it.

Dammit look what ya made me do lol. Now its gonna look like a hate them. It's AC's fault mind you.

i compare them in the sence that they came from nowhere and made something completly different from everyone else. they also make beautiful ambient soundscape, much like Radiohead (no they dont to that entirely but they do do it). i've managed to get the Sigur Ros/Radiohead crossover EP (which is named something like BA BA TI KI KI TI BA so dont quote me on the name) which is awsome

A) It's SIgur Ros.

B) It's Thom Yorke.

C) You like Fightstar. How is it that you believe you are able to say what's worthy of being called legendary or not?

Thom Yorke is one of the best singers ever. Radiohead do more with one album than most bands do in their career. They're one of the very few bands that are madly rated in the mainstream and actually deserve it.

They are legendary, this isn't up for debate.

Why do people always feel the need to reserve high praise until a band is finished?

Radiohead are musically equal to, or better than, any of those bands.

Unless to you, 'legendary' requires a nostalgia element.

No they arent - there on there way - and Fightstar should'nt come into this - I can quite clearly acknowledge that they are passing fad that wont make a second album (such as test icicles).

And thankyou for pointing out the different in Ros'. I getcha now.

But no too bothered about the Thom York thingme.

Btw there was a band that were bordering on Radiohead ground but cant remember the name sorry. Well they were copying basically.

Yes, they actually are better than those bands.

Radiohead, whether you choose to agree or not, are legendary.
