Yes. It's called OK Computer.

Actually in all seriousness, they do have a live album of sorts. It's called I Might Be Wrong and it isn't too damn bad. OKC is also worth checking out, it is a great 'intro' to Radiohead.

I've only heard a few bands live.

My favorite, Duran Duran, sounds a lot better in person than they do recorded. The mixing is entirely different. On their albums, the synths take the forefront... live, it's guitars guitars guitars. Totally different sound. Extremely mature in quality compared to the other stuff I've seen live. (Mars Volta/System of a Down)

Or bands that are too drunk to play their songs. (Everclear)

I've not seen a lot of live shows, but here are the few stand-outs from those:

Tesla: Caught the Five Man Acoustical Jam Revisited concert in Columbus, OH a few months back, and as much as I like the studio material, the live concert was overall a better experience. One or two songs didn't carry over so well to the (mostly) acoustic stylings (some things just can't be done on an acoustic guitar, so some electric was used here and there).

Days of the New: I love the hell out of the studio albums, and the live concert was even better. Went to an part of an all day event in Huntington, WV specifically to see them, and I'm glad I did.

Disturbed: Now, this was part of their tour for thier first album, and was before I really knew who they were since I rarely listen to the radio. They were also at the same event as Days of the New in Huntington that day, and I liked thier show enough that I picked up the album. They sounded pretty much identical to the studio release live.

Billy Idol: I always liked some of his material from back in the 80s that were hits, but never purchased any albums since I didn't like the sound on them enough overall. I got invited to go along with some friends to a concert he put on a few years ago in Cleveland, OH and was very suprised by how good it turned out. Definitely one hell of a lot better live than on the albums I've heard. I even tried going back and listening to one of the greatest hits albums afterwards and still couldn't really get into it aside from a few songs.
