    What Is The "Greatest" Prog Rock band?

    I know it's a difficult (maybe even impossible) question because there are so many great ones, but I'm still making this poll just for fun, so let's se how it turns out

    (heh... is it ProgRock, Prog Rock, or Progressive Rock? Probably should do a poll on that too )

    You know, people get upset with me when I say things like this:

    But isn't it true that influence in music comes from commercial success and airplay?

    Re: What Is The "Greatest" Prog Rock band?

    Although I am the only one that voted for it, I would have to say Rush. I have 1 of their albums that I listen to at work quite a bit. Some of it could be considered "heavy rock", however none of it is "metal". Perfect combination if you ask me.

    Also would anyone consider Dream Theater progressive rock?

    Genesis where great, but after Peter Gabriel left, they just wheren't the same. After that, if you really wanted to hear Genesis as you had before, you had listen to Marillion, probably the best Genesis tribute band ever...

    Based purely on personal taste, I went with Rush. Pink Floyd however, was probably the most influential Prog Rock band.

    Re: What Is The \"Greatest\" Prog Rock band?

    I would have to disagree with Jason. Although Pink Floyd was a very influential Progressive Rock Band, I do not think it was the most influential. I would still have to go with Rush, although I must admit that my opinion is slightly biased due to the fact that I dislike Pink Floyd, however Rush was one of my favorite bands growing up. And please don't ask why I dislike Pink Floyd, it is a very long story, and inappropriate for me to explain at work.

    I can't really decide between Pink Floyd, Rush, and Yes, but they all rock. That much I know.

    I'll say Marillion for a change but I mean Marillion with Fish - especially my favourite album - Fugazi. To me, it's one of the best prog rock productions and I generally have weakness for Fish.
    I also totally agree with mentioning Dream Theater - one of my favourite bands, as well.

    Re: What Is The \"Greatest\" Prog Rock band?

    I think that Dream Theater is progressive symphonic rock/metal. Its heavier then Rush and its also more modern... That's my opinion. And I think it’s the greatest prog rock/metal band ever.

    Jethro Tull had set an important base for the next generation of prog metallers and rockers. I believe that Psychotic Waltz have a magical effect on me as a progressive band. then come Jethro Tull. And Fates Warning are excellent musicians as well.

    Re: What Is The \"Greatest\" Prog Rock band?

    Just my 5 cents, but personally I hate this kind of threads - they give 0 information and the sheer notion of comparing bands (or Art in general) geeves me the creeps and alludes to a pissing contest.

    They are all great!
