British rockers Radiohead are the surprise winners of a Best Album survey with their 1998 record OK COMPUTER.

The PARANOID ANDROID stars beat music legends THE Beatles, THE ROLLING STONES and Michael Jackson in the poll conducted by British television network CHANNEL 4.

Half a million people were consulted on their personal favourites in Channel 4's quest to find the 100 greatest albums in music history.

U2 came second with 1987 album THE JOSHUA TREE, and Nirvana are third from the top with 1991's Nevermind.

REM star Michael Stipe agreed with the poll, saying, "OK Computer really stretched and pushed the boundaries of what Radiohead think they're capable of doing. It is a classic and brilliant record."

The Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr adds, "OK Computer is pretty much a landmark record."

The Top Ten Best Albums are:

1. RADIOHEAD, OK COMPUTER (1998) 2. U2, THE JOSHUA TREE (1987) 3. NIRVANA, NEVERMIND (1991) 4. MICHAEL JACKSON, THRILLER (1982) 5. Pink Floyd, DARK SIDE OF THE MOON (1973) 6.

10. THE BEATLES, The White Album (1968).
