An awesome band whos critics are inmature little bitches who think their to good for true classic rock. This is because they lack the understanding of Pink Floyds awesome, cosmic, epic, and uterly ingenious lyrics.

Listen to Another Brick in the wall, Time, Money, Wish you Were Here, and Comforably Numb. They are some of Pink Floyds best.

A band that first came to be in the late 60's, named by Syd Barrett, who was the lead singer/guitarist/song-writer. A man before his time. The other members were Roger Waters (bass), Rick Wright (keyboards/vocals) and Nick Mason (drums). Sadly, Syd had to leave the band, and he was replaced by David Gilmour (guitar/vocals).
The band are best known for the fantastic albums Dark Side Of The Moon and The Wall, but their back catalogue has albums that are just as fantastic, such as The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn, Wish You Were Here and A Saucerful Of Secrets, and that's only a few!
The band will be remembered as one of the best bands of all time, they deserve to be placed beside The Beatles, The Stones and The Who as one of the pioneers of British music and rock music as we know it.
Sadly, Syd Barrett, who left the limelight after recording two solo albums in the 70's and went back to a regular life, died in 2006, on July the 7th (my 16th birthday). Also, relationships between band members have been sour since the recording of The Wall (in which Wright was fired by Waters, who left soon after), until Live 8 in 2005, when Waters, Gilmour, Wright and Mason played together for the first time in 24 years.
Pink Floyd are usually associated with drug use, but they even stated in their interviews in Live in Pompeii that they did not want to be seen as a drug band. You don't need to get high to appreciate their music, you just need to let yourself go and listen and be taken away on a musical journey beyond your wildest dreams. Long Live the Floyd!
Guy 1: Hey, man. What you listening to?
Guy 2: Pink Floyd.
Guy 1: Aw, neat. They sung 'The Wall', right?
Guy 2: Yeah, but their earlier stuff is amazing!
Guy 1: Got any dope?
Guy 2: Don't need it, it's amazing enough without it.
Guy 1: *listens* You're right, man!

Mid-to-late 60s psychedelic band fronted by Syd Barrett who was replaced by David Gilmour, metamorphosizing into a progressive rock band (in a loose sense of the term). Generally known for three albums - Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and The Wall. The rest of their catalogue is easy to find but largely absent from classic rock stations.
"Pink Floyd rocks!"

"Pink Floyd sucks!"

When faced with a question you cant answer, or dont want to answer, say Pink Floyd. The reason behind this is because the band Pink Floyd makes you think.
Your girlfriend: I can't believe you cheated on me!

You: Im sorry, I love you and I want to be with you forever.

Your girlfriend: Do you really want to be with me forever?

You: Pink FLoyd

A progressive rock group that came into being in the late 60's. Become famous after original frontman Syd Barret fried his brain on LSD and left the group, got new guitarist Dave Gilmour and released "Dark Side of the Moon" which had the longest reign in the billboard top 100 ever. Music sounds futuristic, but old school, Sort of like when they travel to the future in "Back to the Future 2" and everything looked hyper 80's. PinK Floyd started sucking 1980 onwards.
Im gonna go on a spiritual journey, ive got a couple of ounces and my dad's copy of Pink Floyds Dark Side of the moon.
