Top 10 Psychedelic Rock Bandsgameanbubu64 This is where the great 60s rock genre was at, love on it.
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
Pink floyd are my favourite band ever but they are not psychedelic. They started as psychedelic but they invented progressive rock.Only their album the piper at the gates of dawn can be considered psychedelic.They were arguably the best progressive rock band ever.they also were one of the best if not the best band ever but again not psychedelic.The doors and the beatles cannot be considered psychedelic too. They were among the best ever and have some psychedelic songs but they are not psychedelic bands. The doors have only 3 or 4 psychedelic songs so do the beatles.In terms of psychedelic artists the best are Hendrix, jefferson airplane, grateful dead, 13th floor elevatorsV 10 Comments
Nobody does it like the Doors. Nearly every song they have is great. Thank you Jim Morrison
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
There's no band like the doors, best ever

Jimi Hendrix Experience should be higher than Tame Impala. - zxm
People who vote for tame impala are idiots.
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
"Listen to their music you will know"
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
Tame Impala are so good!V 2 Comments
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.
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.
None of these top bands, other than the Pink Floyds early years, would play long, 20 minute plus songs, and none of these bands would stay out and play 2 sets. These guys deserve to be number 1
Long live the Grateful Dead!
Hey, that's pretty good.
This should be #1
8 Miles High was the first really big psychedelic hit
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".
