Radiohead’s 'OK Computer' has been named best album in the past 20 years by US music magazine Spin.

The 1997 album was given the top spot because the album "manages to sound how the future will feel."

The British band's album edged out Public Enemy's 'It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back' and Nirvana's 'Nevermind' on a list in Spin's 20th anniversary

Writer Chuck Klosterman said: "It's a mechanical album that always feels alive, even when its words are spoken by a robot."

Editor-in-chief Sia Michel said the judging criteria was "the basic brilliance of the record, its innovation and its overall relevance".

Radiohead were formed in Oxford in 1988 by singer and guitarist Thom Yorke.

Their first hit, 'Creep', was released in 1992.

'OK Computer' was their third album, released to critical acclaim after 'Pablo Honey' and 'The Bends'.
