Pink Floyd is the only worthy band for me on this list - all the rest bore me.  Sleepy

Radiohead. One of my favorite bands. The rest goes Pink Floyd, Opeth and ... Tool, very far behind.

it will be difficult to create a poll that is more pointless and meaningless than this one.

Pink Floyd, particularly for pre-Dark Side albums, and most particularly I think the "Atom Heart Mother" suite is terrific. Perhaps Walter would like that.  Both Waters and Gilmour have called it crap, and I would call it more of a Ron Geesin work than Pink Floyd. So, one can vote for that, while, in a way, vote against Floyd (or at least certain members of Floyd with, I think, rather large egos).

I like some Radiohead, but never really tried to explore the music much (not that interested).  I haven't liked any Tool I've heard yet, so uninterested in delving further.  I respect Opeth, but I don't think it's really my thing so I haven't explored the music much. Pink Floyd was my favourite band for years, but I lost interest until I rediscovered "Atom Heart Mother".

I never understood all the fuss about Radiohead. I owned OK computer, tried to listen to it, but found it boring.
Opeth is great, Tool is ok.
Lonely at the top is Pink Floyd....Big smile

If Pink Floyd hadn't been in the options, I would have gone all the way for Radiohead. Smile  There's some Floyd influence in Radiohead's music but they are a vastly different band overall.  Tool and Opeth are very far away from Floyd, there might be some elements that you can trace back to PF but they are hardly a major influence on either band.

That's nice. So, it has nothing to do with their music, then? Confused

And you personally know they're creeps and weirdos?

Also, why shouldn't they be on here? If Tool's on here, so should Radiohead.

I knew you were referencing "Creep," but I still thought that you meant what you said.

only thing i meant was agreeing that it will be difficult to create a poll that is more pointless and meaningless than this one. might as well remove pink floyd from the list because none of the bands he listed can compete or compare with them.

Pink Floyd without hesitation, but I like all the bands in the poll.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Seeing that almost 80% of my posts are pro-floyd or floyd related this is an easy poll.

I really started to like Radiohead lately, especially their debut album "Pablo Honey". Opeth is just Ok for me and I just can't bring myself to like Tool for some reason.
