The Top Ten
For all you non floyd listeners out there Thinking "What another brick in the whatsit isn't psychedelic! ", just for you to know, there are more albums then this and listen to pipe at the gates of dawn, an album fronted by my dear friend Syd Barrett. And those of you who want to talk to me about him please don't try to contact me. Yes I knew him, so did a lot of people though.
I like the Beatles better, but interns if psychedelic, no one does it like Floyd.
My favourite band is The Beatles and you gotta give them credit for starting it all, but Pink Floyd took psychedelia to heaven

Not your typical psychedelic but no one takes you on more of a trip through dark, light, ominous and enlightening than The Doors One of a kind
Nobody does it like the Doors. Nearly every song they have is great. Thank you Jim Morrison
There's no band like the doors, best ever

The Beatles are not only the influential band of all time, but also the most influential in psychedelic rock. A Day in the Life, which is psychedelic, is one of the best songs of all time, if not the best. Pink Floyd and The Doors only have a small amount of good material, while the Beatles have better material, and more material.
The beatles aren't that good of a phsycadellice band. But they have taken on the genre. Magical mystery tour is a good example of the doing phsycadellic. And I have a few other thins to say. First of all, who ever said day in the life is phsycadellic is wrong. It may have that erie part where it descended into amother section of the song but that doesn't mean it's phsycadellic. 2nd of all, the same person said pink floyd and the doors have only a small amount of good material. what is wrong with you? Pink floyd has more good material than the beatles. The doors aren't as good as the beatles but they sure as hell have more than just a small amount of good material. And this is phsycadellic were talking about. The doors and pink floyd are God's in that genre. - Cucboi99
Best band ever.. they started it all.. psychedelica metal.. you name it
Jimi Hendrix Experience should be higher than Tame Impala. - zxm
People who vote for tame impala are idiots.
Notice how they're probably the only modern band on this list? They're that talented.
Hands down The only band in the modern times that can be called one of the best of all time!
These guys are talented musicians in the genre
The best psychedelic rock band of my generation,
a lot of great bands on this list but the way tame impala incorporates the traditional psychedelic sound with a fresh twist put them at the top for me, Kevin Parker is a genius
GD will always be the ultimate psychedelic rock band of all time for me - the fact that they are still giving heads and a community that spans three generations their live experience at high levels and that dozens of quality cover/tribute bands expand the vibe around the country month to month speaks volumes.
Long live the Grateful Dead!
Hey, that's pretty good.
Grace Slick wrote "White Rabbit" in 1965 when she was still with The Great Society, but it went mainstream in 1967 with the Airplane
Honestly how can they not be 1st? Jefferson Airplane put psychedelic music on the map and there isn't one member that plays bad. Jack Cassady hands down best American bassist ever. Jorma Kaukonen fingerpicking goodness with his signature weird noisy guitar psychedelicness. Skip Spence on drums for their first album and Spencer Dryden afterwards. Marty Balin incredible folk voice on debut album and Grace Slick powerful voice too. And Paul Kantner on rhythm and writing some incredible songs.
8 Miles High was the first really big psychedelic hit
Listen to "Cavalry" or "Gold and Silver" and you'll know why Quicksilver is the best of psychedelic rock.
Why is thos behind a bunch on non-psychedelic bands. Also (no offense to the seeds), it is better than the seeds. - Sepron64V 1 Comment
Deep Purple is awesome, but they are definitely not psychedelic rock
Deep Purple was a psych rock band in the early era. - zxm
The Yardbirds pre-dated everyone else by over a year with what would become "the psychedelic sound".
Love these guys. They have a nice retro 60s sound to them - ryanrimmel
Thank you for including this talented group.
