What Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” Cover Would Actually Look Like…

FT + I Hate Music268 comments • 16,421 views

If it really was on a wall in 1979.

A manky wall, somewhere in Islington
Note the following:

a) RW 4 RW. Initially cryptic, is easily understood when one considers the narcissism of Roger Waters.

b) Whilst sadly the crude NF written upon the wall is probably for the National Front, nasty racist group that they were, it is also possible that it is short for NO FLOYD!

c) Some wag has made a Chad like Syd Barrett joke, not comprehending how much worse the album could have been if Syd had been there. Well, at least bad in a different way.

d) Oh that I was a boy and could piss so magnificently.

    You are a complete fucking moron. It’s bad enough you don’t like Pink Floyd, but you don’t like any music at all. You need to get a life. Music is the one universal language. You must lead a very sorry existence.

    What I love about Pink Floyd:
    is their music and their lyrics which have accompanied me since I was 16 and that more than 30 years ago. And the older I get the better I understand.
    Their music questions our world and how we see it.

    What I hate about people:
    intolerance, stupidity, fundamentalism!!

    Sorry guys allmost all of you do not understand what your beloved band tries to teach you: TOLERANCE

    I find this new wall design brilliant. I had to laugh!
    Dont take things too serious or you may start looking like those fundamentalists, Nazis, Commies,(… you name it) whose only joy is to HATE!

    “Blah blah blah,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Well all in all it seems as though most of the Floyd fans have just put another brick in the wall. As a devout Floyd fan I am disappointed in our responses. I’m looking at the reviews and I feel some of the same things you all do,,,,, @ the same time I think of the lyrics of 2 Pac’s Changes. Unfortunately this is something that The Pink was trying to open our minds to. pulling us away from personal and Nationalistic views to move us toward Unitarianism. We need to stop using differences as a way to point the finger and use them as a way to unite the masses. no matter what your nationality, race ,creed or religious affiliation or personal views, we all care about the people around us and those we love, we want to be respected for our views and understood. When It comes right down to the line, we are all just living within ourselves and the wall that separates us is built by ourselves. Just listen to Sorrow by You Know Who. ” one world one soul, time passes the river rolls.” When it comes right down to it most of us will never see past ourselves. Grow Up and live by the rule you want others to live by and “make this world a better place.” Oh, and by the way before I forget. ” I kissed a girl and I liked it.” Music Shows us the best and worst in all of us. Get over it and don’t hate –

    No, she won’t be a chav..
    She’ll be a spotty little girl trying her damn best to be popular and cool by ragging on bands that changed music for the better.
    Just because you don’t appreciate it love, don’t mean you have to broadcast it…unless of course you are excactly as a say you are and you want attention.

    I think “The Wall” was several degrees less important a project than “Captain Beaky” in the annals of popular culture.

    I cannot decide which is worse: the drawing, the people talking about how much Pink Floyd sucks, the people making death threats to Tanya, or the fact that anyone cares about this. I don’t even know why I came here.

    This was written from a person who doesn’t only hate Pink Floyd but ALL MUSIC. So there is no need to discuss that that person is an idiot.
    You hate music therefore you hate everything nice created in the world. Btw Pink Floyd is one of the best bands and you are not to judge these things when clearly you hate all music and know nothing about it. Get a life. Stop commenting on the stuff you dont like in your sad miserable life. If you hate music then why bother writing about it. How can you expect not to get hate comments?
    Syd Barrett was a GREAT musician, greater than you will ever be.

    How dare u say such things about Pink Floyd?!?!?
    They were a great band.
    And after all, u really have to read their lyrics, see their work, thei music etc before you start critisizing them like that. I threw a look at your web and found out that u ‘ve written about…like..hundreds of bands. You re like the guy that knows everything, or sth?
    You have to know a thing about music to judge it.
    And finally, the fact that “you hate music” does not give you the right to say such things about it and underestimate or laugh at what hundreds of other people love.

    You’re saying Pink Floyd are “Shit”!? Holy fucking bollocks!!! Mainstream music like Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Soulja Boy is SHIT, in fact mainstream music is a complete load of BOLLOCKS! You’re probably one of these chavs that listens to “N-DUBZ” or whatever the rest of those shit new chav bands are called! Pink Floyd were the best band ever! You’re just being contrary for the sake of it!!!

    You see, I do respect everyone’s opinion in anything they belive. But To beleive that Pink Floyd is “shit”, then to post it on a website is a bit absurd. I’m sure people would rather an opinion of a band from a person that actually likes music. Since you hate music, this is probably the opinion you give to every other band. So i suggest you stop wasting your time criticizing a band that you knew you weren’t even going to like in the first place. This is the most pointless blog(or whatever this is) i have ever seen. How about writing about something you like for once, instead of perioding all over everyone’s opinion?

    One of the greatest albums in my opinion and you dicks wanna fuck it up? That’s just wrong….

    Yes, Kanye. Our contacts at EMI are working on replacing the original cover with this one and destroying all remaining stock / images of the previous version.

    Ask Venetta Fields & Carlena Williams if Pink Floyd are racist, I detest ignorance

    @HACQYR Hmm, yes, let’s ask them about Roger “And my heart skips a beat, when I hear the coloured girls sing” Waters, shall we?!
    Also I find everyone writing: “bet you’re into all that mainstream shit like Justin Beiber” extremely ironic, seeing as Pink Floyd have one of the highest selling albums IN HISTORY, surely making them the very definition of “mainstream”. I quite like the band but fucking hell you lot get wound up easily! And Waters and Gilmour could never write songs like Pete Townshend, they fucking wish!
