The Beatles.

It's not even close.

It's hard to compare the two and I love them both for different reasons. On one hand, The Beatles really have a lot of mystique about them since they did so much in so little time.. all those classics in the span of just 6 or 7 years. Pink Floyd are a little easier to poke at due to the turmoil between Waters and Gilmour and for their checkered history of spotty albums in the 80s and 90s. However, band differences and album inconsistencies aside, both bands high points are still among my zenith of musical discoveries and are proven albums to stand the test of time.. so I can't decide a winner. They're both essential in my playlist.

I listen to both about the same amount. I like them both equal. Beatles win though because I think they were more original. I think the Beatles put a lot of ideas out there which future bands the The  Pink Floyd took to another level. The Beatles get more credit in my book.

 

Much of liking a band comes from exposure. The Beatles were really at the right time and the right  place. I think the Beatles also wrote more catchy songs. Floyd had a longer run but still the Beatles had a bigger impact with very little live performances. 

 

If I had to be left with only one box set it would be Floyd as it is more fun to listen to now days. The Beatles win though only because they changed everything. Their changes are so big that we really can't even see the forest for the trees.

The Beatles started out as boy band so in theory, Justin Bieber could be like a single Beatle that could put a big impact on the world of music like the Beatles.

I really agree with Tegmentum's and Redcarmoose's viewpoints.

I would like to add that I grew up listening to both bands.

Just as The Beatles were fading away around 1970,

Pink Floyd was coming into mainstream popularity here in the USA.

Then in 1973 DSOM was released and they skyrocketed to the top.

So I see it as a "natural progression" in the rock scene at that time.

 

IMO, The Beatles penned some of the best music ever.

Today it sounds quaint, albeit some tracks are timeless.

OTOH, Pink Floyd's progressive nature still has an edge to it.

I listen to it all of the time. I have been addicted to it now for 40 years.

Pink Floyd all the way...

Each had at least one good song, but I'm going with I am the Walrus (over Us and Them).

Pink Floyd or the Beatles: I suppose it has a lot to do with my mood. Like others, I tend to be in the mood for the Beatles most often.That's strange as I have more albums by Pink Floyd than the Beatles. Maybe I just like Pink Floyd's album jacket art better.

post #131 of 192

Can I vote both, I like them both.

post #132 of 192

Floyd FTW!

post #133 of 192

Should it not be the Beatles or Stones??

 

Has to be the Beatles anyway. (don't think they would have been the Floyd we know and love without them)

Damn your ears man!!!!

Better late then never review. Pink Floyd is younger and has a lot more to offer as far as quality tracks, so Pink Floyd is for sure answer. However, If John Lennon was alive today and still making music it would be harder to say. I'd surely like to see what John Lennon would do today, as I like his songs most of all the Beatles. I have all of both these bands original albums and a lot of their solo stuff; and the Roger Waters stuff is IMO, though hard to get in to, some very interesting and technological recordings of any solo offshoots offered. But if it was between the original Pink Floyd with Sid Barret and the Beatles, that would make it harder to chose.
