When Radiohead first got together at their Oxford school, they named their band, “On A Friday” because they rehearsed on Fridays in the music room. After they were signed in 1991, they decided to change their name to the title of a song that was a band favorite, reggae tune called “Radio Head” off of the Talking Heads 1986 album True Stories. The song “Radio Head” was track number 6 off the album.
The lyrics pretty much repeat the words “Radio Head” throughout. Check out the song below…
Oh! picking up something good
Hey, radio head!
The sound…of a brand-new world.
Surprisingly, Radiohead’s debut album “Pablo Honey” took it’s title from a Jerky Boys skit. Click below to hear it…
