Pink Floyd have been named as one of the bands that "changed the world", in a line-up just published by long running, respected music publication, Q Magazine.

Topping the list of the 50 most influential bands is The Sex Pistols, who "shook the world with their anti establishment views and riotous behaviour", and they were followed by the likes of The Beatles (who came second), Nirvana (third), The Beach Boys (fourth) and NWA (Niggaz With Attitude) who came in surprisingly in fifth place.

Pink Floyd did disappointingly, coming in at 40th, edging out the likes of Depeche Mode, New Order and Roxy Music, who came at the foot of the list. Despite incredible sales of albums such as Dark Side Of The Moon, Pink Floyd's relative anonymity with the public dented their chances at appearing higher in the list.
