In Their Right Place: Ranking 10 Radiohead ‘Creep’ Covers (Plus One Bonus Clip!)
From Amanda Palmer to Moby, and Weezer to Korn
Twenty years ago today (February 22), Radiohead released Pablo Honey, their mostly unremarkable debut album that nonetheless features the song that put the band on the map in a big, big way. Oddly enough, it was an incredibly sullen (yet tersely gorgeous) single about having a gnarled body and a broken soul in a shiny happy society that couldn’t ever in a million years find such features attractive. And yet, here we are, in 2013, and “Creep” is still Radiohead’s most recognizable song, even though the band roundly refuses to play it at their shows. That’s fine, turns out, because everybody and their mom have recorded their own versions. Here, we line up the 10 most famous ones (and one extra, for good measure) to knock them down or pump them up accordingly.
