Paranoid Android by Radiohead
It’s been 15 years since Radiohead left behind their rather conventional alt-rock sound and became the most important rock band of late 20th and early 21st centuries. Even though you can hear hints of what was to come on The Bends, this single marked their full transformation from Pixie-wannabes to full-fledged rock pioneers. OK Computer has stood the test of time and its themes of technology-induced isolation are more relevant now than they were in 1997. Needless to say this album is truly a modern-day masterpiece.
