there was a certain point in time at my school, where the girls assumed that Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin were a one-man band.

in my school, the teens aren't doing a great job of saving.. rather... humiliating..

I think it's great that, besides the fact that many young kids are listening to the old stuff, it seems they're quite knowledgeable about it, too.

I am happy to announce that I am a geniune classic rock fan.

And I totally despise anyone anywhere band shirts who cannot name even an album or a band member.

AND FURTHERMORE, the worst offense you can utter to my face is "Who's John Lennon?" when wearing a Yellow Submarine shirt.

there i said it.

I know teens who only like Fallout Boy and stuff like that, but I also know some who honestly like classic rock and are knowledgeable about it, and have a great interest in all the bands and their histories and catalogs.

Agreed. A lot of kids are judging songs by the length of their guitar solos.

That's why Dream Theater are so popular, come to think of it.

I don't think the music scene in Britain is all that fantastic right now, if you ask me. Name one British band that is honestly as good as the old Brit classics like Pink Floyd or Queen. And no, I don't judge those two bands based on their guitar solos or their hair.

Face it, 2000 and onwards has been a very boring musical period in general. Everyone sounds the same as everyone else. There's nothing at all groundbreaking or exciting about any music today, save for the odd Radiohead album here and there.

Name me one Pink Floyd song other than anything you'd find on Dark Side Of The Moon, The Wall, or Wish You Were Here.

That's OK re: Floyd...as far as I'm concerned, David Gilmour IS Pink Floyd!!!!!

I'm late to Pink Floyd. I think I subconsiously avoided them because my parents loved them (if that makes any sense). They're true artists, and it's worth discovering what's below the surface (i.e. what PF music popular music stations play).

I have to say, however, I'm not a big fan of the "Classic Rock" slogan...sounds a little stale, stuffy, and filled with too many power chord images. "Progressive" is more fitting for many of the greats.

The Floyd's overlooked albums are the best. Dark Side is overplayed and the Wall, other than Comfortably Numb, is barely tolerable.

Other than Wish You Were Here (probably their strongest album), its the group's overlooked albums that are worth hunting out. Namely: Meddle, Obscured By Clouds, Division Bell, and A Momentary Lapse of Reason. Even Atom Heart Mother & the More soundtrack have some interesting stuff.

who cares?

she says she likes pink floyd, she likes pink floyd. it's not like you heard every single pink floyd song as it came out... you were born in 1987. you started somewhere, liked what you heard, and spanned out from there.

why can't someone else do the same thing without being labled a poser?

Interesting. If I recall correctly, Roger Waters wrote almost all of the lyrics to Pink Floyd's songs. In fact (I may have made an error - going through album sleeves and online databases is tedious):

Lyrics written entirely by Waters: approximately 80
Lyrics written entirely by Gilmour: approximately 10

Anyway. I agree, Pink Floyd's less-known albums are extremely impressive. Animals, Obscured By Clouds, The Final Cut, Atom Heart Mother, and A Saucerful Of Secrets are fantastic.
