The video for Radiohead’s first single (I wish I was special)

On Sept, 19, 1992, Radiohead filmed the video for ‘Creep’ during a show at The Venue, in Oxford, England. The song, written by Thom Yorke in the late 1980’s while attending the University of Exeter, was the band’s debut single. It would appear on their first album in 1993, “Pablo Honey.” Albert Hammond and Mike Hazelwood are credited as co-writers on the song because of the chord-progression similarities to their song “The Air That I Breathe” (made famous by The Hollies).

“Creep”  met with little success in the UK or US when it was first released in September of 1992, but over the course of a year, it built an audience with the help of DJ’s from around the world.
