Here is a new topic I thought of.
We take 2 bands, and you tell us who you feel is the superior of the two...and why.

Band Wars 1:

Pink Floyd

VERSUS

The Who

I prefer The Who, just because they rocked harder.

Pink Floyd. I definitely haven't heard enough from The Who, but Pink Floyd are fantastic. I think Dark Side Of The Moon, The Wall, Animals and Wish You Were Here are a few of the best albums from any artist. They're just a revolutionary band and each member was so talented. David Gilmour's an amazing guitarist and Roger Waters is one of my favorite lyricists.

The same reason for The Who. PLUS A FREE KEITH MOON who I have on good authority survived the Titanic, all the major earthquakes and several air crashes.

Seriously though..I'm not a huge fan of Pink Floyd. All the songs I've listend to (all of TSDoTM, disc 2 of The Wall and Pulse) have made me feel impatient. The Who on the other hand are either straight into it or are just mellow through out the whole song..unless you're KEITH MOON and you sing Barbara-Ann.

The Who by an absolute mile. One of THE best bands ever - and 'Magic Bus'is one of the greatest songs ever.

Gotta love The Who. :)

The Who. They just are better. Like Manchester United and Manchester City. United are just better.

i agree the floyd take this one for me. but pink floyd are overrated too. that's not to say i don't love them to bits. they are probably my second favourite band after queen.

i think on an individual basis, keith moon and john entwistle are better players than nick mason and roger waters, pete townsend and dave gilmour, roger daltrey and gilmour/waters are too different to compare, but i think that pink floyd made up the greater whole.

and roger waters lyrics will forever be my bible.

Pink Floyd by a longshot! The Who's early albums all had hit or miss material and was not until Tommy that they had their first flawless gem. The Who while a great band were ruined by drugs and ego. Keith Moon became a shell of himself by 1976 and The Ox had demons as well as they had drug problems as did Pete Townshend whom successfully conquered his drug problems unlike Moonie ot The Ox. Pink Floyd IMHO were better in more aspects and drugs were not part of the diet after Syd Barrett was gone. The Who's trinity Tommy, Who's Next and Quadrophenia is as good as Floyd's Dark Side, Wish You Were Here and Animals. Roger Waters is a great lyricist like Townshend.

I think when it comes to band quality I go for The Who... I mean I never heard Mason doing a drumroll to be honest... and Keith Moon is so much faster although maybe fast drumming didn't belong to the Floyd sound. I prefer Daltrey's singing above Waters' singing but Gilmour is the best singer of them 3.

It's more like do you like the good old times rock 'n' roll from Tommy and Who's Next or the psychidelic sounds like Dark Side an The Wall.


I guess you didn't listen to The Grand Vizier's Garden Party on Ummagumma. There is a drum roll from Mason.
