Pink Floyd has released a new version of its iconic pyramid logo to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the classic album The Dark Side of the Moon. And the irate folk on social media are cross about one 'change' that's actually been part of the logo all along. 

Yup, when Pink Floyd tweeted the new, temporary logo (which, frankly, could be on our best logos list), many voices chimed in complaining about the "addition" of a rainbow, claiming the band had become too 'woke'. Seriously. That's despite the fact it references the rainbow used in the original Dark Side of the Moon cover art way back in 1973.
