Radiohead are an English alternative rock band from Oxfordshire. The band's members are Thom Yorke (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, piano, electronics), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, other instruments), Ed O'Brien (guitar, backing vocals), Colin Greenwood (bass guitar, synthesisers), and Phil Selway (drums, percussion).[1] They met while attending Abingdon School, a boys-only public school in Abingdon, Oxfordshire.[2] The band has released seven studio albums: Pablo Honey (1993), The Bends (1995), OK Computer (1997), Kid A (2000), Amnesiac (2001), Hail to the Thief (2003) and In Rainbows (2007). The first six albums were released by EMI's Parlophone (UK and elsewhere) and Capitol (USA) record labels, and the seventh was released by Radiohead themselves as a digital download, and later by XL Records internationally.[3] Several of Radiohead's singles have appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, including "Creep" which peaked at number 34, "High and Dry" which peaked at number 78, and "Nude" which peaked at number 37.[4]

The band has received eight BRIT Award nominations, but have yet to win one. Radiohead has received the Best Alternative Music Performance award three times at the Grammy Awards, for OK Computer in 1998, Kid A in 2001, and "In Rainbows" in 2009. At the MTV Video Music Awards, the band received the award for Best Art Direction for "There There" in 2003. Radiohead has also received the Best Act In The World Today award three times at the Q Awards, in 2001, 2002, and 2003. Overall, Radiohead has received 13 awards from 38 nominations.

Note: The table does not include nominations for others' work associated with Radiohead. In 2001, Nigel Godrich was nominated for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical, for work including Radiohead's Kid A. Godrich was nominated again for the same award the next year, for production work including Amnesiac. In addition, at the 2002 Grammy Awards, Stanley Donwood and Tchock (an alias for Thom Yorke) were nominated and won the award for Best Album Package, for the special edition book of Amnesiac. In 2004 Nigel Godrich and audio engineer Darrell Thorp were nominated and won the award for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical, for their work on Radiohead's Hail to the Thief. At the 2009 Grammy Awards, Godrich will again be a nominee for Producer of the Year, this time in recognition of his work on only one album, Radiohead's In Rainbows. The "discbox" release of In Rainbows is also nominated for Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package; any award would go to the art directors of the package. Radiohead would then have three, rather than two, nominations in 2001; three, rather than one, nominations in 2002, including one win; three, rather than two, nominations in 2004, including one win; and seven, rather than five, nominations in 2009. This would give the band a total of 20, rather than 14, career nominations, among which four so far, rather than two so far, would be wins. However, such secondary nominations and wins for art and sound engineering are not usually counted in a music artist's total for comparison purposes with other acts.
