    Band-Off: Pink Floyd vs Steely Dan

    One dark and moody. The other reflective but playful. Both very intelligent, distinctive, and musically creative. Many similarities between the two: both have amazing lead guitarists, both feature prominent use of sax, both are essentially studio bands. Lots of differences too, tho.

    LOLS. Well, I guess I'm in the minority.

    Although more often than not I'd rather listen to Steely Dan. Being a depressive personality, a lot of the time Pink Floyd is too much for me...like revisiting every painful moment of my childhood. Hey look mommy, a bomb is falling on our house. :yes:

    Vagina or 60 grit sandpaper.

    Steely f'n Dan?


    [QUOTE]Pink Floyd was for the most part, a very successful band. The purpose of this page is to show just how successful they were. They have 16 gold albums, 13 platinum ones, and 10 multi-platinum ones. Two of their albums The Wall and The Dark Side of The Moon are two of the bestselling albums ever. The Wall is 3rd, and Dark Side is 11th. They both have received a Diamond award for selling over 10 million copies. They've had numerous #1 albums, and a #1 single. Pink Floyd has three albums in the Top 100 bestselling ever Dark Side, The Wall, and Wish You Were Here. They are the 9th bestselling artist ever selling over 52.6 million records. Dark Side was on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart for a record 736 weeks. It also has the record for most consecutive weeks, with over 500. In fact they changed the rules because of it when it finally dropped off the charts in 1988, 14 years after it went on. Actually Dark Side is still on the Billboard Pop Catalog Albums Chart for the 1,162nd consecutive week, and The Wall just dropped off this week after over 520 consecutive weeks on it.

    Have to agree. Throw in a Nelson "HAha" at PK for agreeing with one of the graybeards he so likes to mock here. Oh sure, Floyd had its time near the top of my list, back when I thought everything was so deeep maaannnn...but now it just comes across as the theme song for the dude standing on the edge of a chair with a noose around his neck. Yes, I know Steely Dan ain't the Monkees, or even the Beatles, but it's definitely one of the first 8-tracks I reach for when I want music that makes me feel good.

    Apparently you enjoy the hard warm pressure of a man's penis entering your anal canal.

    Not suprised, tbh.

    I always had my suspicions.

    What a coincidence -- just yesterday I called some guy a homo for one of the bands he listened to! Oh wait, no, that was 32 years ago in junior high school. My bad.

    LMAO but....

    Put a high school garage band in a room and tell them they cant leave until they can play songs off a Steely Dan album or Pink Floyd album??? They will be out in 15 minutes learning Pink Floyd and will grow old trying Steely Dan.
