Pink Floyd's 1977 LP Animals is the group's most polarizing work. Some love the ambitious, super-long songs on the collection – while others find it bloated and lacking the charm of their previous work. "Dogs," which takes up nearly the entire first side of album, is a longtime favorite of Floyd super-fans. Recorded near the height of the Seventies prog-rock scene, the song lasts for over 17 minutes. It's the kind of song that made Johnny Rotten walk around England in an "I Hate Pink Floyd" t-shirt. The song is so long that members of Roger Waters touring band played a game of cards onstage during the middle section when they weren't needed at their instruments on the 1999/2000 In The Flesh tour.
