the absolute best band ever. much better then the beatles or zeppelin, even tho they all kick ass. floyd is obviously better tho (their getting not just their name in the rock & roll hall of fame, their getting an entire wing WTF!!!) best band ever. much better then wut people think, forget DSOTM and the wall for a monment and just listen to More or Atom Heart Mother or Saucer full of Secrets---Best band ever, NO exceptions
Pink Floyd kicks ass-and i totally agree with zeppelin, hats off to harper, without roy harper there would be no "have a cigar", why u may ask, cause he sung it, in fact he was the only person other then someone from the band to sing in a PF song - PF kicks ass
One of the most original and talented bands ever. Their music commented on the social injustices of modern society and the atrocities of war in a way that no other band has done before or since.

I'm not really expecting anyone to pick this definition out of all those other ones, most of them redundant and many quite false. However, if you are reading this, you are lucky to get an acurate (at least i hope acurate) annalysis of Pink Floyd's music. Pink Floyd, with the possible exception of THE WALL is part of the ultimate aquired taste in Rock music. If you can truthfully say that you love they're music BESIDES The Wall, our hats are off to you. For all you others, don't feel bad. Pink is definately NOT for everyone. If you can't stand long, slow songs, and drawn out guitar solos, skip this band. For those of you who will listen to the music and take in the perfectly crafted words, the etherial atmosphere (present in much of there Roger Waters era music), and the beautiful vocal and instrumental harmonies, and drug-induced melodies of early Floyd, then you will be rewarded. Contrary to most bands of today, Pink Floyd creates genuinly good music. Good here does not mean music you can headbang to or even really shout along to (again, with the exception of The Wall), but beautiful, heartfelt harmonies, heartwrenching lyrics, and inspired passion. Those who appreciate musicals and classical music will also appreciate most of the later Floyd with Roger Waters.
FORWARD HE CRIED FROM THE REAR, AND THE FRONT RANK DIED! AND THE GENERAL SAT AS THE LINES ON THE MAP MOVED FROM SIDE TO SIDE.

Pink Floyd is, if not one of the best bands ever formed, way up there.
pink floyd > many many many people
Named after two bluesmen, Pink Anderson and Floyd Council, Pink Floyd is one of the most awesome psychadelic rock bands ever to be created. If you decide to be really fucking lame and just listen to Darkside of the Moon and call yourself a fan... then go ahead- but like i said, everyone will think you suck, which is true. Pick up some early albums like The Piper at the Gates of Dawn or Saucerful of Secrets, then go ahead, you can say, "i fucking love Pink Floyd." Congratulations.
Common Floyd reaction:
"man... that's a trip"
At the risk of sounding cliche, I will say that Pink Floyd is one of the greatest bands of all time. They created timeless music that was amazing back in their day and is still amazing today. Unlike many bands who fade away with their generation and are forgotten, Pink Floyd has managed to have fans from their generation and new fans from ours. If you've never listened to Floyd before, I suggest you buy their earliest albums first and go from there. Not saying their later albums are any less then the earlier ones but you might want to get to know them and their style before you just jump into their music. All in all I think Pink Floyd will be around for a long, long time and even though not everyone will like them, there is something to be appreciated in their music.
Father: "I love Pink Floyd!"
Son: "I love them too!"
Best fucking band, ever. Period.
If you're going to listen to the chorus of "Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2" and call yourself a Floyd fan, be my guest, but people are going to say you're an idiot, and they're quite right.
