Radiohead’s “OK Computer” was voted the ‘Best Album of the Past 25 Years’ by readers of Q magazine, the British rock outlet.

Nirvana’s “Nevermind” landed in 2nd spot, with Oasis picking up 3rd and 4th positions.

Naturally, the list is full of British rockers, including The Stone Roses, Coldplay, Muse and others.

Paul Rees, Q’s editor-in-chief, stated: “In the 13 years since its release, OK Computer’s appeal to Q and its readers has grown exponentially. We originally hailed it as a masterpiece and, a rarity this, that isn’t an opinion that we’ve even considered modifying ever since. As this readers poll testifies, our readers see it as the benchmark against which all other album are and continue to judged against in Q’s lifetime.”
