Oh By The Way, Which One Is Pink?

In the annals of rock history, Pink Floyd is undeniably one of the greats, so over the course of years their songs have been covered by many a band who spent their formative years listening to their records non-stop. Below are six of my personal favorite Pink Floyd covers. Obviously, there are a wealth of other great covers out there, but these six represent some of the best. Personally, I think the Foo FIghters version of "Have A Cigar" is the best Floyd cover going (right now at least), but that opinion might be heavily influenced by the fact that I have a total man crush on Dave Grohl. Either way, it definitely rocks. I also have to give mention to Les Claypool's Frog Brigade album Live Frogs Set 2 which is a live album where Les and his band cover Pink Floyd's Animals in its entirety. If you are a fan of Primus, then you definitely need to check that out.
