If you want to see the other threads here already you can just use the search button. It will show what people here have already posted about Pink Floyd. It is easier that just starting a new thread.

Ive always wondered what genre Pink Floyd falls in. They have a lot of songs with a similar feel to them, yet no other band sounds like them. It's like they are a genre on their own.

^^Well, they could be called Prog rock, psychadelic (NEVER will they be psychadelic with me, but they are with other people), and classic rock of course. Maybe art rock, depends on what you think is art rock.

yeah, pink floyd was like the most artistic band, just look at their album covers, the special effects in their songs not to mention how they are live.

If they're not given enough credit, is that why they're one of the biggest rock bands ever? I think DSotM sold like 25,000,000 albums in the U.S. or something. And if they do do a conecert, I really hope They get back with Roger Waters, and it'd be interesting if they got back with Syd Barret too, even though he's psycho or whatever.

^^Getting back with Syd is virtually impossible. He doesn't go by Syd anymore, he doesn't play music, he doesn't talk to anyone who was associated with his past life. He did go mad and its not like crazy psycho killer mad or sit-in-your-room-and-watch-you-sleep mad or something. His affliction is really sad...I don't think we should upset him by asking if he wanted to do a Pink Floyd reunion.

Don't get enough credit? You joking? They get plenty of credit around here...because they are one of the greatest bands ever. Now, about a reunion tour, don't count on it. As much as I'd like it to happen, its not going to anytime soon.

since i've been into the floyd, i've always wondered what the world must look like to syd. is he just permanently tripping, or does he live in some sort of hellish nightmare? obviously he took things a little too far, but i think it would be interesting to see what actually goes on in his head. he kind of reminds me of the Colonel Kurtz character from Heart of Darkness/Apocalypse Now.

How did you ever get the idea they don't get credit?

LoL..They're little overshadowed by LedZep and Deep Purple,I know,because that's what was popular in the 70s and 80s,but Floyd still got the credit they deserved (Though it could always be more)

DSOTM sold like 20 million copies,and floyd had songs that stayed on the billboard for 700 weeks.

The problem began when the band disbanded,and every band member started doing their own concerts playing the songs from Pink Floyd.That's when people lost some interest.

Today,people may not like,or even know,Pink Floyd.But go back 2 decades and ask the same question.

You'll know your answer.

PINK FLOYD RULES!!!
I don't mean what I write in my posts.So don't argue back on it,and don't check me..Because,though I don't mean them,they are the only way I can increase my post count.

I posted it in a different thread, and since not everyone reads every thread, and it is a big deal, I figured I would let everyone know. That's all.

it was the album DSOTM that stayed on the charts for 700+ weeks, not songs. Still, that's a rediculous number.
