After three years of heavy touring, Roger Waters is finally wrapping up his The Wall Live tour this Saturday night in Paris. It's one of the biggest tours in rock history, and Waters is going to walk away from the endeavor with a pretty nice payday.  

The Dark Side of Pink Floyd: Photos From Their Last Days and Bittersweet Reunions

Which leads to this week's question: What is Pink Floyd's single greatest album? Don't feel confined to the big ones like Wish You Were Here and The Dark Side of the Moon. Early work like Atom Heart Mother and Meddle are great, and the post-Waters albums A Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell do have their nice moments. Vote for whatever album you want, but please only vote once and only for a single album.

Everclear | 1996

"It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
