radiohead being amazing is not subjective. like the beatles, you may not enjoy their type of music but their brilliance, innovation, and weird dark intensity have to be respected.
Amazing != "brilliance, innovation, and weird dark intensity have to be respected."

Plenty of people don't think The Beatles are amazing.

Those people would be wrong though.
If you believe amazing is an absolute construct. Sure.

Ok, so just so we have a running list:

Mozart >>>>>> Radiohead >>>>>> Pop punk

Sounds right to me.
You took out a bunch of my ">>>" marks ...

and ... hello irony.

i'd love to see the correlation between people that don't like radiohead and people that love sugarcoated "pop punk", "power pop", and cheesy metalcore.
Seems to be a higher correlation between those that like Britney Spears and those that like Radiohead.

They're an extremely mainstream band.

I mean obviously not everyone has to like their music... but I think it would be kind of ridiculous for someone to claim that what they did for pop and rock music and the influence they've had is anything short of "amazing."
I'm not going to make an argument to counter (one of my favorite bands of all time) ... however, one could be made.

if you can sit with a straight face and tell me Kid A and Amnesiac are mainstream i lose what little respect i have for your opinion.
I never said 2 albums were mainstream. I said the band was. Nice try.

Come on. That's just not fair. That's like saying there's a correlation between ACDC and Lady Gaga, just because they're both popular. Poor, poor argument.
There is a correlation ... not a poor argument when it's true.

There are a lot of people on this website, as one example, that do not like Radiohead. Most of them like cheesy pop punk. That's a fair example.
There are more people, as one example, on this website that absolutely love Radiohead. Some of them like cheesy pop-punk. Some don't.

What about it? There's no pop punk in there. Just electronic/indie songs written by a 15 year old kid.

Their music is not main stream. That is the point he/she was making. So comparing an artist with mainstream music like Britney Spears to a popular artist that makes non-mainstream music is not fair.
I never said their music was mainstream. I said the band was.

they haven't been even remotely mainstream since the bends.
By all measurable metrics - this is completely false.

You need me to elaborate on what a mainstream band is? Or how, arguably one of the biggest bands in the universe for the past decade, fits into this?
