We gave it a B

This British buzz band’s single ”Creep” is the ultimate neurotic teen anthem. It mates Smiths-type self-consciousness (”I don’t belong here”) with dramatic U2-like vocals and guitar, with Cure-style heavy but crunchy pop. In addition to longing to be ”special” on ”Creep,” angst-filled singer Thom Yorke wails on Pablo Honey, ”I wanna be, wanna be, wanna be Jim Morrison.” You mean Morrissey. B
