On September 21, 1992, Radiohead released their debut single, “Creep.” While the British alt-rockers had initially recorded other tracks for a potential debut, none ended up satisfying the band. In between takes at the studio, Radiohead began jamming out another song, “Creep,” which frontman Thom Yorke had written years earlier as a student at Exeter University. While “Creep” didn’t immediately chart, the song became a global hit the following year. Today, it remains the group’s most successful single and a go-to song for artists to cover.
