Top 10 Reasons Why The Doors are Better Than Pink Floyd

The Doors are just better than Pink Floyd. They really are. Someone had to make the list.

The Top Ten

1 The Doors never had "Pink" in its name

That's like spitting on a breast cancer awareness ribbon just because it was pink. - djpenquin999

@ElectricCorpseSlayer please and please don't take it offensively but what it has got to do with it greatness? - zxm

2 Jim Morrison was the better singer

This is probably true, but Pink Floyd's songs didn't rely on the lyrics. There's a reason a lot of Pink Floyd songs have long instrumental parts - GillisL

This is the only point in this list that either is fake or idiotic.
What is the point in saying that having "pink" in his name means that a band is bad.
the Doors are a great band but being american doesn't make them better.
screw you creater of this list!

Jim morrison was a great singer,so roger,david and syd.david has extremely nice voice roger is a good singer with great vocal range,he is also a great singer,syd also has great voice.and all of them could use other instruments as well as vocals - zxm

3 All of Pink Floyd's songs sound the same

The Dark Side of the Moon is a boring album with boring songs such as Time and Money. The Doors had great songs like Light My Fire, Riders on the Storm, Touch Me, People are Strange, and Break On Through (To The Other Side) - ElectricCorpseSlayer

I am suggesting some songs high hopes,keep talking,wish you were here,astronomy domine each of them sound differently,again no offense just my opinion on a subjective list - zxm

4 The Doors are American

What kind of reason is this lel - MilkmanBoi

Actually it's a little bit of discrimination,both England and US are great for rock music.there are also a lot good countries with great rock music but they don't get attention for foreign language. - zxm

5 Ray Manzarek is the greatest keyboardist of all time

Listen to the keyboard intro to Light My Fire. It proves that he is the best. - ElectricCorpseSlayer

Both of them are good and close to each other,in one list ray is higher than richard while in another richard is on higher - zxm

Light My Fire keyboards intro is good but not for me,because I had a toy and this toy sounded like this. And Baba O Riley keyboards intro is mind blowing. Way much better than Light My Fire. - zxm

6 Pink Floyd has boring songs

I used find them boring but the songs I mentioned above flipped my mind on them 180 degree - zxm

I'd agree with this if you're listening to them for the first time. But now I find them amusing. - LightningBlade

I'd agree with this if you're listening to them for the first time. But now I find them amusing. - LightningBlade

I get bored of listening to Pink Floyd after listening for 30 seconds. The Doors I can listen to for a long time. - ElectricCorpseSlayer

7 They're Not

I love The Doors, but Pink Floyd is even better.

8 Light My Fire is a much better song than Comfortably Numb, or Wish You Were Here

Also, Light My Fire is the best American Rock song of all time (excluding Metal). - ElectricCorpseSlayer

Could be but their songs such as high hopes,keep talking,astronomy domine,See Emily Play,hey you are way much better than light my fire.especially high hopes it's a great song with backing orchestrations.and when he sang the song david was 47 years old,so its pretty much hard to sing like this at this age - zxm

9 The Doors had a song in School of Rock

Pink Floyds song was used in The Squid and the Whale,which is better than School of Rock,higher rate on IMDB and also in meta critic - zxm

10 Pink Floyd is overrated, while The Doors are underrated

Its completely a subjective matter.but I don't think they are overrated. - zxm

The Contenders

11 The Doors were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame first

Actually if its like that then I think chuck berry is better than all of the music artists - zxm

The Doors were inducted in 1993, Pink Floyd in 1996. - ElectricCorpseSlayer
