    I'm feeling both cheeky and sad due to the death of Neil Peart. So I will thow up the poll hoping that Rush will get some sympathy votes. They are my favorite and I do think they are the best.

    So, what say you all? Best Prog Rock band of all time?

    P.S. if your favorite isn't on the list they didn't make it past the first vote. You may like them, but they are not a contender.

    The first is still the best.

    What, no Canterbury(Soft Machine/Robert Wyatt/Hugh Hopper, Caravan, Hatfield and the North, Gong/Steve Hillage), Henry Cow, Gentle Giant, Van der Graaf Generator? Not a serious discussion without them.

    We're not talking about personal favorites here. We're talking about the best.

    That you didn’t know any band on my list, yet include ELO in your poll, speaks volumes. I would understand that you included Dream
    Theater and Tool to not be stuck in just the classic era, but then, where is Marillion, Porcupine Tree, Mars Volta...Spock’s Beard, even? When exactly was this first vote, and who determined it? Wouldn’t it stand to reason that anyone’s ‘best’ be a favorite?

    And ElO is prog and YES isn't?

    Alllllllrighty then!

    If you’re going to include neo-prog, like Tool and Dream Theatre, Porcupine Tree should be up there as well.

    I'm trying to add Yes. Totally should be there, but due to limited edit options I cannot add them.
