The release of Pink Floyd's 1973 album, The Dark Side of the Moon, was a watershed moment in the band's popularity. The Dark Side of the Moon featured a U.S. Top 20 single ("Money"). The critically-acclaimed album stayed on the Billboard Top 200 for an unprecedented 741 weeks (including 591 consecutive weeks from 1976 to 1988), making it one of the top-selling albums of all time.

1979's epic rock opera, The Wall, gave Pink Floyd a chart-topping single with "Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2)". The Wall also included the future concert staples "Comfortably Numb" and "Run Like Hell".

Despite never hitting #1 in the UK, Pink Floyd's "The Wall" topped the U.S. charts for 15 weeks during 1980. The Wall sold well over 30 million copies worldwide and is often regarded as the best-selling double album ever.

Essentially a music video for the entire album, a film entitled Pink Floyd: The Wall was released in 1982. The film, written by Waters and directed by Alan Parker, starred Boomtown Rats founder Bob Geldof and featured striking animation by noted British cartoonist Gerald Scarfe. It grossed over US$ 14 million at the North American box office.

After The Final Cut, Pink Floyd's members went their separate ways, each releasing solo albums. Waters announced in December of 1985 that he was departing Pink Floyd describing the band as "a spent force creatively". A legal dispute ensued with Waters claiming that the name "Pink Floyd" should have been put to rest. High Court proceedings went in favour of Gilmour and Mason, much to the annoyance of Waters.
