OK Computer

OK Computer is a rock album by the band Radiohead. It was released on June 16, 1997 in the United Kingdom and on July 1 in the United States. The album met with wide critical acclaim and commercial success, putting the British group at the forefront of modern rock. Arguably Radiohead's most significant breakthrough work, OK Computer was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1998 in the category of Best Alternative Music Performance which it won later that year.
