About “Untitled”

“Untitled” is a hidden song by Radiohead from their album Kid A.

A short, interesting instrumental piece. In an interview, one of the members stated that they were just scanning the radio station one day, and found that song (a classical song) and recorded it onto the album without finding out what song it was.

The song is commonly referred to as “Genchildren” by fans although it is not referred to by this name in any official source.

About Kid A

Kid A is the fourth studio album by the English rock band Radiohead, released in 2000. It represents a radical departure from their previous guitar-driven sound and embraces electronic experimentation, incorporating elements of ambient, glitch, and krautrock genres. With its unconventional song structures, abstract lyrics, and innovative use of electronics, Kid A is regarded as a pioneering album that challenged the boundaries of rock music.

The album opens with the haunting and atmospheric “Everything in Its Right Place,” setting the tone for the rest of the record. Tracks like “Idioteque,” with its pulsating beats and distorted samples, and “The National Anthem,” with its cacophonic horns and frenetic energy, showcase Radiohead’s bold sonic exploration. Songs like “How to Disappear Completely” and “Motion Picture Soundtrack” evoke a sense of melancholy and introspection.

Kid A is a highly immersive and atmospheric listening experience, demanding attention and repeated listens to fully appreciate its depth and intricacies. It is a testament to Radiohead’s willingness to push boundaries and innovate, solidifying their status as one of the most influential and adventurous bands of their time.
