Pink Floyd in my opinnion is the greatest band that has ever existed. They are completely underrated, and have so many meaningful writing pieces, they are the only band that brings you out of this world and literally into another dimesion

Anyone can argue that a band is the best band of all time with statements like 'they bring you out of this world and literally into another dimesion' or some other kind of hippie bullsh*t... But the only agreeable measure there is to comparing the greatness of bands is to take tangible numbers about the bands and put them together head to head

When it comes to the best selling singles of all time, Pink Floyd doesnt even make the list
http://en.wikipedia.org...

When it comes to the best albums of all time, Pink FLoyd loses to ACDC, the Bee Gees, Fleetwood Mac, Whitney Houston, and the Eagles
http://en.wikipedia.org...

When it comes to the highest grossing tours of all time, Pink Floyd loses to U2, Rolling Stone, Madonna, and ACDC
http://en.wikipedia.org...

And the universal tool for measuring success of bands, best selling music artists, Pink Floyd loses to the Beatles, Elvis, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Led Zepplin, and Elton John
http://en.wikipedia.org...

So no matter how you measure success, Pink Floyd is not the best band of all time, they come in at around number 5 almost every time

You shouldn't pick a topic where you have to add "They are completely underrated" to the debate you are practically forcing your way into the noose by saying that. One of the things that is flawed about this debate is that its a matter of opinion and opinion should be left to the masses. Now if you said "is 80's music the best" and added in pink floyd as one of your main statements then you would have better chances.

I was not aware that Pink Floyd's music broke the laws of physics.
