    I was listening to Rock 101 up here in N.H. yesterday while I was at the gym, and everyday at about 4:45 they do the cage match. What they do in the cage match is they pit two bands or artists against each other and people call in to vote on which band they want to hear a block of at 6:00. Well, yesterday's cage match was VH vs. Pink Floyd. Unfortunately, because I was at the gym, I couldn't vote for the Mighty VH, but I was thinking that this would be a no brainer and VH would win. Much to my surprise, when I was listening to rock 101 today and they were recapping yesterday's cage match during today's cage match I found out that VH lost to Pink Floyd by 19 votes. I used to absolutely hate Pink Floyd, but they have grown on me over the years to the point where I actually like a few of their songs. I could see where alot of people might like them they are a great band, but over VH? I guess New Hampshire can no longer be known also as Van Hampshire anymore.

    Well, nobody beats Van Halen in my book, but looking at the glass half full, at least they were beat out by a true artistic group. Better than being beaten out by someone like Green Day or something.

    VH is my favorite band by a big, huge, long shot...but I also dig Floyd, so I guess if they are to be beat by anyone...let it be Floyd...

    Well, being a 27 year old punk I gotta stay that I'm still nowhere near liking them hippies. I'm a senile delinquent I guess.

    Well, it being that this is a VAN HALEN forum, I'm SO gonna get blasted for this one. I love the big VH and all, but personally my favorite band IS Pink Floyd. I just dug the deeper lyrics a little more, but loved Eddie's guitar style just as much as Gilmour's. Anyways, flame me like hell, and smoke 'em if you got 'em

    Pink Floyd sucks. Just like modern country music, I haven't heard a non-depressing song by them.

    That's not a flame shot at you MDoggie.

    Oh man, two of my favorite bands!!! I've been in a Floyd mood lately, so I guess I would have had to vote for them. Sorry guys.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>I have nothing against Green Day, but they're just a tiny little speck on the rock n roll landscape. For me, they don't rate anywhere in the same universe as VH, or the Beatles, or the Stones, or even Pink Floyd. And I'm not even a Pink Floyd fan, but I just don't see Green Day being compared because they haven't shown they can stand the test of time yet.

    Damn, am I a rock n roll snob, or what?

    No defending yourself, Glenn. Green Day is so basic and so minor league. There is not a band after 1992 that is worth mentioning in the Van Halen ranks.

    Nope never got the whole Pink Floyd thing, never saw what was that great about them. Too boring for me. No offense Floyd fans.

    In college in the early 90's, you weren't cool unless you liked Pink Floyd and wore Bergenstock (sp?) sandles. All these dudes running around the dorm halls with their Bergenstock's, tye-dye shirts and pony tails telling me "Dark Side Of The Moon" is the greatest album ever. Man I even did the token drunk and/or stoned Floyd listen, (one of the three times I have ever smoked pot in my life) and I still was bored to tears. Gimme some fuckin' VH.

    I like VH better than Floyd by a shitload, but there's nothing better to listen to when you're smoking than Floyd. I just can't imagine smoking pot, trying to relax, and listening to "Hot For Teacher". And HFT is one of my favorite VH tunes.

    Exactly right. At least they didn't lose the "Van Halen vs. N Sync" cage match. Maybe they have? That would be a scary thought.
