Radiohead Declares 'OK Computer' A Classic

Radiohead has declared its 1997 album OK Computer a classic, which should prove helpful to today's music fans and critics, as well as future generations of rock historians, now saved the confusion of reconciling the "OK" in the title and the critical acclaim for the record.

The band's helpful move comes in the form of the title for their forthcoming DVD, Radiohead: OK Computer-A Classic Album Under Review. The DVD, which will be released in the U.S. on September 19th, includes live and in-studio performances of every track on the classic album, commentary from music writers and a former Mojo editor, and bonus features including "The Hardest Interactive Radiohead Quiz In The World Ever" which asks for proof that 2 + 2 = 5.

Radiohead does much more than make classic albums, tour, and subject their fans to baffling math problems. A glimpse into their interests is available via their website's links page. Many links are related to politics, corporate accountability, and environmental protection. There's also a couple of nifty sites that might prove good for stress relief for anyone actually taking on that math problem, The Daily Nice, which shows a different nice photo every day, and The Keyboard Museum. It has interactive drum machines and much more.
