Top 10 Reasons Why Pink Floyd is Better Than the Doors

Ok, so one of my most recent lists, Reasons The Doors is better than Pink Floyd did not turn out so well. People were very mad at some of the dumb reasons such as "The Doors Never Had Pink in its name", or "The Doors are American". So I decided to make this list before anyone beat me to it.

The Top Ten

1 Pink Floyd is a much more unique band V 1 Comment
2 Pink Floyd music is more complex and takes more talent
3 Pink Floyd was more influential

Pink Floyd influenced many great bands such as Queen and Tool. They were also one of the earliest progressive rock bands, which many bands such as Genesis, Yes, Rush, King Crimson, and Jethro Tull had continued making the genre great. The Doors, on the other hand, just influenced some random bands that Pink Floyd also influenced. - ElectricCorpseSlayer

4 Pink Floyd is more creative
5 Pink Floyd has better Lyrics V 1 Comment
6 Pink Floyd has better songs

One song of pink floyd could turn a pink floyd hater to floyd lover,I wasnt a floyd hater but I didn't use to listen their songs and one song changed my mind,and it also happened to a lot of people. - zxm

7 Pink Floyd has sold more records than The Doors

The only artists I know of that have sold more than Pink Floyd are The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Madonna, Elton John, and Led Zeppelin. Pink Floyd has sold over 200 million records. The Doors have just sold 80 million. - ElectricCorpseSlayer

To be fair, Floyd was around much longer. That said, there's no question Pink Floyd was the more talented and creative band.

8 Richard Wright is a better keyboardist than Ray Manzarek

Ray Manzarek did good with the intro to Light My Fire. Wright however had Us and Them, Wish You Were Here, Shine on you Crazy Diamond, Echoes, and much more. - ElectricCorpseSlayer

9 Roger Waters was a better bassist
10 David Gilmour was the better singer, and he didn't hate his own voice
