Which one?

Ok Computer is screaming Radiohead right now, but I'm not sure....

Pink Floyd.

OK Computer is a masterpiece, but "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn" is better :)

Radiohead, even though it's almost impossible to compare the two

Radiohead. Well from what I've heard.. PF didn't explore completely different sounds the way radiohead have.. although I'm sure someone will come along now and flame the arse off me for saying that.

You are right...Pink Floyd didn't bother ripping other people's styles off. Even so, I still listen to Radiohead more.

When it comes to decisions like this, I usually prefer the artist from my generation. I'd say they're more or less equally awesome but Radiohead I love, whereas Pink Floyd I merely admire.

It's a close one, but Floyd - on virtue of the fact that they held their own pretty damn well for at least 12 years straight. I don't think Radiohead can claim any more than 7 (so far). I'll be impressed if Radiohead can stay above the water through 2007.

Of course, it's a damn shallow reason, but given a dead heat, well...

I like Radiohead more, but that is in no way intended to denegrate Pink Floyd.

Until Radiohead makes anything half as gratutious and as utterly awful as The Wall, they will always be a better band.

Pink Floyd have got radiohead pinned to the ground and are continually bitch-slapping them - and all radiohead can do is whine about it.

Pardon? What's that have to do with anything? Almost every band is more "masculine" than Radiohead, but I don't think Waters and company really dislike them. Waters said he didn't get "Amnesiac", but we're not talking about rivals here.

good one.

btw, in my thread, it was I who told everyone to rate the topic one star...just kinda having fun with it. I agree with the mods that most people were slagging off genres that actually have decent artists, so I suppose it needed to be closed. Ska still sucks, though.
