this kind of just proves the stupidity of the Hall voters...Floyd didnt get in on their first ballot!!! LOL!! I would love to hear the moron who argued that they didnt belong on that first nomination...

The fact that Floyd got in at all is remarkable seeing how Wenner, Hilburn and the rest hate Prog. Consider the fact that The Moody Blues, ELP, YES, Tull, King Crimson and RUSH have never even been nominated much less inducted.

If you have made some off history's best selling albums (Dark Side Off The Moon, Wish You Were Here, The Wall etc.) it's very strange that someone might argue against Pink Floyd being inducted into Rock Hall of Fame. Now just hope that SRV gets inducted.
Posted by Man on Sunday, 01.7.07 @ 06:31am
That is the type of idiots that run the hof. SRV has been nominated in the past I believe and should get in a some point. But until the prog and metal acts like Deep Purple and Judas Priest get in along with the other 7 acts I listed, the hof will remain a joke.
Posted by mycroft on Sunday, 01.7.07 @ 08:09am
SRV has not been nominated. He is not even eligble yet. Everyone's got their own sob story.

Hell...with these twits selecting we can forget any interesting actual Rock groups. Rush? Hello? Why are they not in..KISS? They only made the Rock and Roll Anthem. Moody Blues? How about Alan Parsons Project?

KISS WASNT A GOOD BAND FFS! THEY WERE JUST IMAGE! And they had one goddamn song that was good, other than that nothing was remarkable. The same would apply to Nirvana if they (Along with a few other bands) hadn't completely started the grunge movement.

Pink Floyd were first eligible for 1991 (to go in in 1992) because they debuted in 1967 with "Arnold Layne" and The Piper at the Gates of Dawn. Were passed over in 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994 and didn't go in until 1995. Jann Wenner hated PF yet thankfully David Fricke and Anthony DeCurtis sang PF's praises. Many RS reviewers panned PF's albums (WYWH, Animals, AMLoR, DSoThunder, TDB, PULSE and the live recording of The Wall). Floyd thnakfully were let in becaude of their album sales, groundbreaking albums, concert spectaculars and their immense charity work.

Everyone knows Pink Floyd is one of the greatest bands of all time and by far the most successful progressive rock band of all time king floyd.
Posted by FloydFan on Friday, 11.21.08 @ 21:02pm
hey floyd fan,do you know when pink floyd is going to be in concert?
Posted by king floyd on Friday, 11.21.08 @ 21:09pm
Not sure king floyd. I haven't heard of a concert.
Posted by FloydFan on Saturday, 11.22.08 @ 21:44pm
Is Syd Barrett inducted with David Gilmour, Roger Waters, Rick Wright and Nick Mason? He better be.
Posted by Limits to Infinity on Saturday, 11.22.08 @ 21:48pm
Yes, he is. Check the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame website if you need clarification. Also, Wikipedia lists the inducted members on their Rock Hall inductees page.
Posted by Casper on Saturday, 11.22.08 @ 23:54pm
I hate the people who say Pink Floyd is bad because they have other sounds in some of there'ye songs.

It doesn't matter what Rolling Stain Ragazine has to say, Dark Side of the Moon will always be The Greatest Album of All Time.

The Trial is probably the strangest but best song in the history of late 70's songs.

Well if you total up the progressive acts on the list there are 6.
Posted by Dude Man on Tuesday, 07.7.09 @ 18:42pm
Well, actually 3 metal acts: Manowar(they most likely do deserve to be on the list), Whitesnake, and Yngwie Malmsteen.
Posted by Dude Man on Tuesday, 07.7.09 @ 18:59pm
OK I'm going to half to restate what I said here yesterday. Yes, Blender's article was terrible and whoever wrote it clearly demonstrates no knowledge whatsoever of rock history.

I always thought that it was kind of weird that Billy Corgan inducted them. I wouldn't really expect him to be a fan of Pink Floyd.

In a few hours it'll be October 17, the 20th anniversary of the Loma Prieta earthquake aka the World Series earthquake. I was in my dorm room at the California School for the Blind getting ready for dinner and Pink Floyd's "Us And Them" was playing on the radio. Then at 5:04 PM I felt a big temblor. Here are the lyrics from "Us And Them" that relate to the earthquake.

Just shows the bias of the hall towards prog when Floyd took two years to get in and Genesis 5!
Posted by GFW on Sunday, 08.1.10 @ 10:25am
5? I think your confusing Rock Hall Revisited with the Cleveland Hall because Genesis didn't get in Cleveland until this year, a wait of 14 years

woops, make that 16

When can be the actual iphone five likely to be released? I've got verizon and would certainly like to get the i phone when my own agreement expires in September, I want to figure out when the new iphone five is coming out anytime soon, for the reason that if so, I would stick it out lengthier to have that instead of the apple iphone 4.

OMG, do you see whats going on in Syria? In spite of a brutal government crackdown, the demonstrations continue
Posted by Eva Penson on Saturday, 12.17.11 @ 12:22pm
Black Sabbath got in on their 8th year of eligibility. The Jefferson Airplane and Fleetwood Mac after four years. Both Pink Floyd and David Bowie were inducted after three years of eligibility. Michael Jackson also waited three years. Queen got in after two years. But the Pretenders got in on their first shot. Makes perfect sense.
Posted by astrodog on Friday, 01.20.12 @ 13:51pm
That is ridiculous, there's loads more worth ybands than The Pretenders. Don't know what the hallw as thinking.

My Top Twenty:
Posted by dmg on Tuesday, 04.21.15 @ 21:30pm
I'm never been that much of a Pink Floyd fan. Before my time I guess. Like to see Def Leppard, Duran Duran, Moody Blues, The Cure, And Scorpions make HOF...let's say Enough People like Pink Floyd then they deserved their HOF spot. Did like the Lost For Words song on Division Bell and The Wall song. Do you think Duran Duran has more hits than Pink Floyd? Put their music side by side in an open evaluation. Would be interesting exercise exercise. KING
