yeah you're right

That's the word most often used to describe me, "boring"

when asked why, people always respond, "she doesn't like pink floyd. you can't be cool and interesting if you don't like the floyd, man!"

There is so much to respond to here that I am not even sure where to start.
To begin, the idea that Floyd is purely a "stoner" band is a hyper-inflated stereotype, largely owing to the short-lived Barrett era. Beginning with Meddle, the thematics of their albums dealt with very real and serious subject matter, and both of the predominant song-writers were never frequent drug users.
Secondly, it must be admitted that early Floyd albums contained some ridiculous mis-steps, yet, once they hit their stride, they were consistently evocative, cerebral, and musically innovative. The period from 1971-1983 is simply the most brilliant era that any band has ever produced.
Third, it is slightly perplexing to see someone who apotheosizes the Arcade Fire suggest that Floyd is overrated; without Floyd there would be no Arcade Fire, nor would there be a Radiohead, nor possibly even a U2. These bands have all followed Floyd's lead in exploring the tensions and pressures of the world with musical and lyrical statments that are at once introspective and resonating.
It is fine to dislike 20+ minute epics, or to believe that Waters was an egomaniac (which he was), but to deny Floyd's ingenuity and musical prowess borders on the non-sensical.

"overrated" does not equal "sucks"

I like Nirvana, hell I love some of their stuff, and they certainly impacted a whole generation of music... but I still think they're overrated.

Pink Floyd is often held up as one of the greatest bands ever. Lancemc is simply saying that while Pink Floyd are very good, they are perhaps not quite up there with, say, The Beatles, or that Dark Side of the Moon doesn't need to top every best album list.

it's not something that's fundamentally true or false, it's opinion
