* ArcSymbol: Pigs. The album cover of ''Music/{{Animals}}'' features a flying pig, most of the songs on that album have to do with pigs, and at each subsequent Pink Floyd concert, a giant inflatable balloon pig appears at some point.

* BoringButPractical: Compared to the other progressive bands, Pink Floyd's musicianship is downright minimalistic.

** Even Syd managed to squeeze in a couple. "Jugband Blues" has been interpreted as his way of "thanking" his band mates for kicking him out of the group. Also, the unreleased "Vegetable Man" [[WildMassGuessing could have been]] his view on the music industry; the title of the song referring to musicians being molded into mindless hit-making machines... Eight years before the rest of the band tackled the subject with "Welcome to the Machine" and "Have a Cigar".

Eight years before machines (concluding with the [[Music/{{Nirvana}} Kurt Cobain-ish]] line [[PrecisionFStrike "He's the kind of fucker you just got to see if you can!"]]), a theme the rest of the band tackled the subject (with David Gilmour in tow) would continue with on "Cymbeline", "Welcome to the Machine" and "Have a Cigar".



*** Though Floyd proper did tackle the subject long before those songs, indeed within a year of Syd's departure, on "Cymbeline".

* MeaningfulBackgroundEvent: Someone apparently blows up an aeroplane in the background of "On the Run". In some stage shows, [[SugarWiki/SoCoolItsAwesome a model aeroplane would fly across the stage and explode]] at the end of the song.

Their guitarist, David Gilmour is widely considered one of the best rock guitarists ever, for his melodic solos and mastery of tone and vibrato; as well as his voice, which he sometimes uses to complement his guitar (singing either in unison or harmony with it). Syd Barrett is known for his experimental music and his lyrics are held in high regard. His relatively brief career has attracted a major following. Roger Waters' lyrics are also held in high regard for their high quotient of satirical humour and general quote-ability, as are his strong bass-lines and his highly dramatic vocals. Keyboardist Rick Wright was the band's acknowledged "secret weapon" for his backing vocals (and occasional lead vocals) and {{jazz}}-influenced keyboard textures, which became a key component of the band's sound. Nick Mason... Er, is the drummer, and is the band's official archivist. Mason gets very little (though not none at all) in the way of writing credits [[note]] in fact, the only reason he had a credit on "Speak to Me" was because Waters gave it away [[/note]], vocal parts [[note]] he speaks through a ring modulator on "One of These Days," recites an electronically distorted poem on "Signs of Life," and sings on the officially unreleased "The Merry Xmas Song" and "Scream Thy Last Scream" alongside Barrett, and on "Corporal Clegg" alongside Wright and Gilmour [[/note]], or overall notice, but he ironically is the only member to have played on every Floyd record (Gilmour wasn't there for the first, Wright didn't play on ''Music/TheFinalCut'', and Waters left after that record). According to biographer Nicholas Schaffner, however, Mason was responsible for many of the band's signature sound effects.

*** ''[[BritishNewspapers The Sun]]'' reported that Waters had over 150 rolls of toilet paper with Gilmour's face printed on every sheet. Waters denied it, but admitted that it was a great idea.
