Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" album came in at #2 on BBC 6 Music's "The Glorious 50." The list of 50 albums was compiled from listeners voting for their favorite albums from over the last five decades years.

Floyd had three albums on the list. In addition to "Dark Side" (1973) at #2, "The Wall" (1979) came in at #15, and "Wish You Were Here" (1975) held the #20 spot.

The band tied The Beatles for most albums on the list, and bested the Fab Four's highest entry, "Revolver," which came in at #3.

The Stone Roses' self-titled album held the top position. Groups with two albums on the list were Radiohead, U2, Oasis and Jimi Hendrix.
