Hall of Fame Essay
In October 2000, a week after Radiohead’s fourth album – the cryptic, electronica-soaked Kid A – shot to Number One in America upon release, singer Thom Yorke politely dodged a question about the record’s improbable success, especially given the English modern-rock band’s perversely low-key promotion.
They had done no videos and released no singles; they did three tour dates in North America plus a TV appearance on Saturday Night Live; and they had just one U.S. interview, on a bench in New York’s Central Park in the crisp autumn dusk.
