    Kinda, I decided not to include prog as a genre (that's a really technical genre)... I did however include Coheed & Cambria in Alt. and Pink Floyd in Rock, though I could still include Tool and Rush off the top of my head. Anymore suggestions for progressive acts?

    Prog is a genre and if you are going to include Industrial, Prog. needs to be included as well in its own section, but please choose actual Prog. bands (not C&C, Pink Floyd, or Rush)

    Recommendations (the genre deserves at least 6 songs so 3 classic, 3 modern)
    Emerson, Lake, And Palmer - Trilogy
    YES - Roundabout
    Jethro Tull - Witches Promise
    Porcupine Tree - Dark Matter
    Spock's Beard - Day For Night
    The Tangent - Lost In London

    no death metal no blackmetal ?:(

    Well I fixed that Fizzeler but according to most Pink Floyd C&C and Rush are progressive for one reason or another, whether it be odd time signatures, conceptual lyrics, or song format.

    goldencrepe - I've tried to touch on most genres while still sticking to music that I primarily like... I wasn't trying to go to ultra-specific genres, but please give me a couple suggestions on death or black metal, or let me know what defines a band as such.

    not that good
    Could you be a little more descriptive as to why it wasn't good?

    In making this list, I was trying to make it well rounded... I'm not a big fan of certain genres, but I still tried to think of some songs from most genres to put together a list of songs that I like, and would hopefully entertain most any crowd. So in you saying it's not good, is it because of song/artist selections, exclusions, too much/not enough of a genre? Or are you just trying to break my balls because you didn't make it? :P

    :rolleyes:

    You said yourself the genre is very technical which is why only certain albums by those bands (none of which you chose) are Prog. and C&C is not Prog.

    I would just use the bands I listed as well as the songs (I've Seen All Good People would be very boring on drums and bass compared to some of their other songs like Roundabout and Siberian Khatru)

    Pretty awesome list, in my opinion. Good job! My only request is more classic rock, but that's just my tastes.

    edited May 2009
    Sorry Fizz... I'll give some of those you listed a listen and see if they are worthy of adding to my list... thx for the advice :P

    Thx Captain... yeah, that's one of my weaker points. I kinda knew it, but I just couldn't think of those off the top of my head as well as the newer stuff.

    There's some bands I really don't like (hed pe, Theory Of A Nickelback, Papa Roach) and some stuff I'm happy to see (The Urge, Everclear, The Refreshments). Could also use some more 60s rock and several different sub-genres (more grunge and traditional heavy metal in particular), and the alt/indie feels a bit off to me (I can't exactly pinpoint why). Could use some work, but not bad. Also, there's a few song title mistakes in there (U2 song = Sunday Bloody Sunday and I believe the SOAD song is just Metro [good choice, btw...])

    A Favor House Atlantic isn't the most Prog of Coheed songs. What about The Willing Well I: Fuel For The Feeding End?

    Not bad, some pretty awesome instrumentation... it just doesn't come together as well or catch my ear as well as AFHA or Welcome Home.
