The big one. This single was largely ignored in the UK when it was first released, failing to even climb into the top 70.
Upon release in America, though, this track was added to several radio station rosters and aired frequently on MTV.
Suddenly, after the failed single that was Drill, Radiohead had themselves a hit. This was later
reissued in the UK and climbed to a respectable 7th. It was also the reason many critics branded Radiohead as one-hit wonders.
After later singles didn't display the same energy or talent that Creep had done.
Radiohead originally intended this to be a double A-side. With Million Dollar Question and Inside My Head as the A-sides. Imagine
that... That makes the song that shot the band to fame would become a B-side. Maybe we wouldn't even have heard of
Radiohead at all?
