Radiohead inducted into Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

On March 30, iconic English band Radiohead saw its long-awaited induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The band, which first formed in the early 1990s, is made up of Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, Colin Greenwood, Ed O’Brien, and Philip Selway. Selway and O’Brien attended the Brooklyn-based induction ceremony. The Talking Heads’ David Byrne gave the induction speech, noting that the group “both changed our idea of what popular music can be and how it can be released and marketed to us.”

“This is a real honor,” Selway said in his acceptance speech. “And it’s particularly special that David Byrne has inducted us. As David said, we borrowed a band name from him 30 years ago and luckily for us he hasn’t asked for it back yet. I’d just like to say a little bit about what being in Radiohead means to me. It can be awkward and challenging sometimes. But I guess that’s what kept us all interested for the past three decades. I’m beyond proud of what the five of us have achieved together, and I know that Radiohead wouldn’t have become what it is without the five of us.”
