In a sign of the times, Pink Floyd has joined TikTok

Amidst rumours that Pink Floyd is looking to sell their catalogue for unguessable millions comes word that the band has now licensed its music to TikTok. Now people will be able to do funny dances to “The Great Gig in the Sky” legally. More specifically, TikTokers can access audio from fourteen Floyd albums, extending back to the 60s.

Meanwhile, the band says it will now start using TikTok to regularly post “unique visual content.”

And why make the announcement on May 30? Because it was 50 years ago to the day that Pink Floyd entered Abbey Road Studios to start work on Dark Side of the Moon.

A prize to the first person who does a dance to “Echoes.” (Not really, but please go ahead.)

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    So, at some point over the summer one of my nieces is going to tell me how good Pink Floyd is? I can’t wait. It’s Fleetwood Mac all over again!

    PS. On a somewhat related note… I’m kinda pissed a million little dorks just “discovered” Kate Bush “Running Up That Hill” on Stranger Things and they think they’re all cool now.
