* BadExportForYou: The first two American releases of ''Music/ThePiperAtTheGatesOfDawn''. The first was a butchered version with added and deleted tracks, similar to the way Capitol handled The pre-''[[Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand Sgt. Pepper's]]'' [[Music/TheBeatles Beatles]] albums. The second was the double album set ''A Nice Pair'', which was a reissue of the band's first two albums. The album version of "Astronomy Domine" was replaced with the live version from ''Music/{{Ummagumma}}''. Americans couldn't get a proper version of ''Piper'' until the CD era in TheEighties.

** In 1978, Roger sent cassette demo's of two projects which were to be the follow-up to ''Animals'' to the band and Bob Ezrin, asking which project they wanted to make. One, ''Music/TheWall'', was chosen. The other, ''The Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking'', was not. Later on, ''Pros And Cons'' became Roger's first true solo album in 1984.

** Pink Floyd was always about using the latest and greatest recording technologies of the time. But 80's production has not aged well at all, giving ''A Momentary Lapse of Reason'' a very dated sound today.

** Several of the band's early recordings were not released until the exhausting 2016 box set ''The Early Years 19651972''. Before then, they were highly sought after as bootlegs. Examples include "Vegetable Man" and "Scream Thy Last Scream", which were recorded at the height of Music/SydBarrett's SanitySlippage and have not been officially released because the surviving members feel they are "too voyeuristic". This has not stopped them from being widely circulated as bootlegs, and "Vegetable Man" has been covered by acts such as Music/TheSoftBoys and Music/TheJesusAndMaryChain.

* BlackSheepHit: "Money", "Another Brick in the Wall (Pt. 2)", and "Learning to Fly", their best known songs and biggest pop hits, are totally unrepresentative of the band's sound. Somewhat ironically, the closest to representative of these songs is probably "Learning to Fly" despite being by the oft-maligned "dehydrated" (no Waters) line-up and the fact that the album the song was on (''Music/AMomentaryLapseOfReason'') gets criticized for its late 80's pop production.
