Radiohead Declares 'OK Computer' A Classic
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.
