Radiohead released their debut single "Creep" in 1992. The song was initially unsuccessful, but it became a worldwide hit several months after the release of their debut album, Pablo Honey. Radiohead's popularity rose in the United Kingdom with the release of their second album, The Bends. Radiohead's third album, OK Computer, propelled them to greater international fame. Featuring an expansive sound and themes of modern alienation, OK Computer is often acclaimed as one of the landmark records of the 1990s.
Kid A and Amnesiac marked an evolution in Radiohead's musical style, as the group incorporated experimental electronic music, krautrock and jazz influences. Kid A, though somewhat polarising at the time of its release, is now frequently recognised as one of the best albums of the decade. Hail to the Thief, a mix of piano and guitar driven rock, electronics and lyrics inspired by war, was the band's final album for their major record label, EMI. Radiohead initially self-released their seventh album In Rainbows as a digital download for which customers could set their own price, to critical and chart success. Their eighth album, The King of Limbs, was an exploration of rhythm and quieter textures, which the band released independently.
