Pick my favorite band you say? Rush.

But I guess for this I'll go with Porcupine Tree.

Pink Floyd only had one good album, and that was A Saucerful of Secrets.

Definitely Porcupine Tree - my favourite band besides Dream Theater.

I voted Floyd. I'm not hugely fond of most of their albums, but they still had some very good songs, enough so to wipe the floor using Steven Wilson turned upside down as a mop.

If PF wins, DTF would have chosen my favorite band besides DT. Too bad I don´t consider the other 3 bands good.

Honestly have to go with Pink Floyd.

I'm not really grasping why this thread should be archived.

Because it generated a shitload of traffic and just about every heat had more than 100 votes which is a startlingly higher level of participation than any other poll series I recall seeing on DTF.org. Also I don't see how the archiving of this thread is any more absurd than the archiving of these:

I liked 'em too. I just found it silly to draw the line at this thread where other threads that were so random and forgettable got in. It doesn't make any sense.

Black Floyd, regardless of all your hard work, your poll results don't visually resemble the male genitalia. Thus, your pollathon will quickly descend into obscurity. Better luck next time.

This poll would be archive worthy is suddenly you changed the rules and started a new final thread with only two options: 1.Rush and 2. Rush.

In the end, though, it's all about what people like.  And I haven't heard one thing from Pocrupine Tree which I like that wasn't done better previously by Pink Floyd.  Sure, Porcupine Tree have done things that don't sound like Floyd, but those are the things I generally don't like.  Bonnie the Cat comes to mind.

Saying I like PT better than PF would be like saying I like Rush better than Zeppelin-- but only because I love Rush's first album and don't care for the rest of the stuff.

I like Porcupine Tree, not as much as Pink Floyd, but I HATE BONNIE THE CAT, jesus that song is horrible.

Good call.  Those should probably all be deleted.  But still, not that this thread is bad or anything, but we never archive P/S threads.  And I mean, not that there's anything wrong with this one, but it's just a bunch of random bands you picked to have people vote on (and you left off a bunch of good ones, too, by the way).  So why is it special enough to archive?

actually bosk, your wrong. We picked the band, and this is easily the most well put together poll I've ever seen on DTF. The fact that a lot of people paid no attention to it until later rounds, does not change the fact that he gave us the choice to submit five bands to be voted upon. They weren't random at all.

Can't believe Porcupine Tree made it to the end... so many of those other bands were so much better than them.

This.

PT has a lot of great songs, "Bonnie the Cat" is not one of them.
