Pink Floyd is an English rock band created in 1965 in London.

The first singer was Syd Barrett. He left the band because of drug problems and he was replaced by David Gilmour and Roger Waters.

Pink Floyd is a legendary band in the world. Their most popular albums are The Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall and Wish You Were Here.

Another Brick in the Wall Part 2 was released in 1979 on the album The Wall. The album tells the story of a character who builds an imaginary wall in his head. The song is about teachers who bully pupils at school. In the chorus, the Pink Floyd tell teachers to "leave kids alone".

The video below is not the original music video from 1979. It is an extract from the film The Wall directed by Alan Parker in 1982. In the video, we can see a teacher putting pupils in a giant meat grinder. The atmosphere is creepy and the video is unsettling.
