"The Dark Side of the Moon": Pink Floyd fans are annoyed by rainbow covers - and show how badly they know the band

Pink Floyd can look back on a long and eventful career: the band has been around since 1965, but it was 50 years ago that they had their big breakthrough. The album "The Dark Side of the Moon" was released in 1973 and became a huge success. The album is number three on the list of the world's best-selling albums, behind AC/DC's "Back in Black" and Michael Jackson's "Thriller".

For the 50th anniversary, the rock band is releasing the cult album as a special edition, which is due to be released at the end of March. The group is already doing a lot of publicity for this, and a new logo has also been designed for the new release. On it you can see: a rainbow. And that really pisses off many Pink Floyd fans.

After all, the rainbow has made a remarkable career as a symbol of the LGBTQI community in recent years and decades. Again and again it is used as a sign for diversity and diversity and sometimes also triggers social discussions.

Apparently, many Pink Floyd fans didn't like that at all: They accused their favorite band of adapting to the "woken" zeitgeist. "I don't need a liberal agenda," someone in the band wrote on Facebook. "I've been a fan for 63 years, but I'll never hear you again." Other comments took the same line.

Now Pink Floyd have been in the music business for many decades and have experienced almost everything from great successes to deep upheavals within the band - but justify themselves to their own fans because of a rainbow in connection with "The Dark Side of the Moon". had to, they probably wouldn't have expected that either.

Because the colors can already be seen on the original publication from 1973. So the motif that some fans are upset about is 50 years old - and not a pandering to a zeitgeist, but a reference to the greatest success in the band's history.

No wonder some (real) fans are shaking their heads. "Imagine claiming to have been a Pink Floyd fan longer than I've been alive and not knowing anything about them," someone wrote in the Facebook comments column below the post about the new logo. And someone else jokes: "Some took 'We don't need no education' too literally." Hopefully the angry fans will at least understand this allusion.
