I think it depends on what part of Radiohead's career you're talking about. If it's OK Computer, you can tell her they're the modern version of Yes. If it's The Bends, Coldplay's not a bad comparison - hell, a lot of modern arena pop bands rip that album blind. If it's In Rainbows, I don't think U2 is a bad comparison - or Muse, for that matter. For the electro stuff, you're on your own.

Or you could call them an arty indie arena rock band that tries to pretend it's not a prog band. I see your point, though - to their credit, they refuse to be nailed down.

By the way, I finally got around to listening to King of Limbs. Is it just me, or is it in the running for the most half-assed album released by a major artist?
