Top 3 > RadioHead

There is an argument, albeit a very biased and pop oriented one, that Radiohead has been the most important band of the last 20 years.  Whether it be the  isolationist dissonance of Kid A or questioning societies myopic leanings in Hail to the Thief, Radiohead as actively pursued the truth through music.  By exploring sonic soundscapes within a pop canopy, Radiohead is actively bringing under-appreciated musical influences to the masses, the most important of these genres being jazz.  I remember the first time I heard Pyramid Song and how affected I was by the spacing of the notes within the main movement.  And who can forget the Drums coming in a second shy of 2 mins.  Amazing.  Jazz Musicians have been playing Radiohead songs for years, actively reworking and assimilating them into other compositions.  So here are our top 3 RadioHead Covers.
