OK Computer, twenty years on: Radiohead’s musical, cultural, and political legacies

 

OK Computer, Radiohead’s third album, has captivated many rock music fans worldwide and continues to this day to feature in the music press’s lists of the best rock albums of all times. A complex, at times experimental, album, OK Computer stood at odds with the dominating trends in mid-to-late 1990s British music and culture, especially Britpop, and the album’s bleak, subversive lyrics provided a sharp contrast with the features of the Cool Britannia phenomenon.

Fandom has changed considerably over the past five decades, from the earliest science fiction conventions in the 1930s to the letter-writing campaigns that helped save Star Trek in the 1960s to the long queues of people waiting eagerly to meet their favorite genre actors in the 21st century. Fandom has exploded from the small groups meeting to talk about their favorite books or films to the worldwide phenomena of mixed genre gatherings that combine science fiction, fantasy, comic books, horror, anime, and video games. Some fans have attended the same conventions for thirty years, while others are newbies to convention culture.

Fan studies is an interdisciplinary field, with scholars in disciplines ranging from cultural studies to law, from sociology to library science, all bringing their unique perspectives to bear on research about fans. As a result, fan studies is methodologically eclectic: approaches can include a combination of quantitative, qualitative, highly theoretical, practice-based, online, offline, archival, legal, textual, and/or community-centred methods, and this is far from an exhaustive list. This gives the field flexibility to address a huge variety of research questions while also posing challenges with regards to methodology selection and compatibility, different perspectives on rigour, as well as ethics and researcher positionality.
