Pink Floyd were an English rock band formed in London in 1965. Gaining a following as a psychedelic pop group, they were distinguished for their extended compositions, sonic experimentation, philosophical lyrics and elaborate live shows, and became a leading band of the progressive rock genre. Pink Floyd were one of the first British psychedelia groups, and are credited with influencing genres such as neo-progressive rock and ambient music.
Pink Floyd were founded by students Syd Barrett, Nick Mason, Roger Waters, and Richard Wright. Under Barrett’s leadership, they released two charting singles and a successful debut album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (1967). Guitarist and vocalist David Gilmour joined in December 1967; Barrett left in April 1968 due to deteriorating mental health. Waters became the primary lyricist and thematic leader, devising the concepts behind the band’s peak of critical and commercial success with the albums The Dark Side of the Moon (1973), Wish You Were Here (1975), Animals (1977), and The Wall (1979). The Waters-written musical film based on The Wall album, Pink Floyd – The Wall (1982), won two BAFTA Awards.
Pink Floyd have influenced numerous artists. David Bowie called Barrett a significant inspiration, and The Edge of U2 bought his first delay pedal after hearing the opening guitar chords to “Dogs” from Animals. Other bands and artists who cite them as an influence include Queen, Radiohead, Steven Wilson, Marillion, Queensrÿche, Nine Inch Nails, the Orb and the Smashing Pumpkins. Pink Floyd were an influence on the neo-progressive rock subgenre which emerged in the 1980s. The English rock band Mostly Autumn “fuse the music of Genesis and Pink Floyd” in their sound.
In 2004, MSNBC ranked Pink Floyd number 8 on their list of “The 10 Best Rock Bands Ever”. In the same year, Q named Pink Floyd as the biggest band of all time according to “a points system that measured sales of their biggest album, the scale of their biggest headlining show and the total number of weeks spent on the UK album chart”. Rolling Stone ranked them number 51 on their list of “The 100 Greatest Artists of All Time”.
VH1 ranked them number 18 in the list of the “100 Greatest Artists of All Time”. Colin Larkin ranked Pink Floyd number 3 in his list of the ‘Top 50 Artists of All Time’, a ranking based on the cumulative votes for each artist’s albums included in his All Time Top 1000 Albums.
In 2008, the head rock and pop critic of The Guardian, Alexis Petridis, wrote that the band occupy a unique place in progressive rock, stating, “Thirty years on, prog is still persona non grata… Only Pink Floyd—never really a prog band, their penchant for long songs and ‘concepts’ notwithstanding—are permitted into the 100 best album lists.”
