Radiohead’s OK Computer Album Cover Is A Highway In Hartford

Some enterprising Radiohead fans have seemingly discovered the location of the highway featured on the cover of the band’s 1997 classic OK Computer. One inquisitive Redditor enlisted the help of, a forum that serves “a haven for ‘roadgeeks’ who love discussing interstates, construction, road trips, etc.,” and managed to pinpoint the exact area: the eastbound junction of I-84 with I-91 in Hartford, just before it crosses the Connecticut River.

The same Redditor also theorizes that the original photograph was taken from the window of the nearby Hilton hotel on August 20th, 1996, one of Radiohead’s last shows in the US before they returned to the UK to record OK Computer.
