A British progressive rock band that formed in the late 1960s and toured until 1995, albeit with the mid-80s departure of bassist and singer Roger Waters. Despite the nearly 30 year career, most of the band's famous works were released in the 1970s. Their lyrics and sound have been both praised and critisized for being very trippy and unique. It often takes patience to enjoy Pink Floyd music, as many of their songs are very long and slow.
The band has some of the most recognizable logos in music history, including the famous cover of the 1973 album Dark Side of the Moon, the crossed-hammer logo from the 1984 movie version of the album The Wall, and the flying pig from the cover of the 1977 album Animals.
Notable works include Dark Side of the Moon (1973), Wish You Were Here (1975), and The Wall (1979).
- Do you listen to Pink Floyd?
- No, I'd rather listen to fast paced, loud, hard rock 'n roll. Y'know, like Guns 'n Roses or Audioslave.
- Oh, they're good, too.
