A YouTuber has just recreated every track from the Radiohead album ‘Ok Computer’ using sounds from Nintendo 64 games.
Originally released by Radiohead in 1997, ‘Ok Computer’ reached number one in the UK, and became the best selling album of that year there. It is also estimated to have sold over seven million copies globally.
‘Ok Computer’ subsequently won a Grammy the following year for Best Alternative Music Album, and is hailed by many as one of the most important albums of that decade, as well as one of Radiohead’s best works.
