Progressive rock sucks.

Have any prog rock fans considered cultural signifigance when picking their greatest favorite bands? None of the albums progressive rock band have made even the slightest impact on music.

Yes is no Beatles. Rick Wakeman is no Carl Perkins. Bad Religion is no Rolling Stones. The fact that some people even mention the likes of Incubus and Smashing Pumpkins in debates over great rock bands have got me scratching my head here. And then there's the slowtards naming modern post-hardcore albums as the GREATEST EVER. Un-fuckin-believable.

Let me put it in terms you nerds can understand. Mario is, without a doubt, the greatest video game character ever. Why? Because of his impact on the culture. Scrooge McDuck may be way cool, but Ducktales didn't start a phenomenon.

Learn your Rock N Roll history.

There's always Eloy, Van Der Graaf Generator, Grobschnitt, Tangerine Dream, Popol Vuh, and Klaatu.

Oh oh oh and esuohlim, maybe if you actually put any thought into any music that you liked you'd realize that punk- and I mean real punk- has a great amount of culteral significance

Pink Floyd was prog and they have a lot of influence and cultural impact on rock culture also Realtionship of Command by At The Drive-In is one of the greatest albums ever and is modern post-hardcore. unless by modern you are talking about bands that all the self-proclaimed "emo" kids love and appear on the cover of Alternative Press.

Take the Romones, for example. The Ramones are indeed the greatest punk band ever, simply because they are the greatest American band since the 50's. And certainly the most influential band since the Beatles.

These bands people talk about. Dead Kennedys, Misfits, Dead Milkmen, they all appropriated the low brow aesthetic from the Ramones. I'd venture to say that if you've made a rock record since 1976 and it doesn't have some Ramones influence, it probably sucks.

I'll be the first to tell you that the music I listen to sucks. If I don't have a problem with it I don't think anyone should.

Except the people who are in the room with me while I'm playing it.

And we can say "fuck" here btw

Pink Floyd is composed entirely of overthought, pretentious, drawn-out wnakery

"real punk" sir you are a wanker of epic proportions.
also "culteral significance" is kind of ironic

Ironic? IRONIC? Sh*t/

Real punk bands have had more impact on world culture than any other kind of music, like with the Stooges

Before 1968 there was no real RAW rock n roll. The Stooges did that. Really, the Stooges came from almost nothing. You can hear the early rock influence, but nobody ever took it to such an extreme. These guys were bent on having the most fucked up rock group in history, but they did so in a completely uncalculated way. There was no planning or posturing. This was the world's first real artistic band. This is the antithesis of progressive rock. No bs intellectualism, just pure emotion. Lustful, angry, and stupid. Ugly as sin, but sexy as hell. This band is real.

The Stooges make the Who look like Danny and the Juniors. They brought about an entirely differant form of expression in music. One that's taken for granted now. Without the Stooges, punk rock wouldn't exist. Every member of the Ramones has made it clear that their biggest influences were the Stooges and the New York Dolls. Their influence is undeniable on great music.

And these are stated as facts because they are indeed facts. Get yourself some Stooges records and you'll understand where the rawness that spawned punk rock originally comes from.

There's a difference between good significance and bad significance. If you'd read milton, you'd know that

HAVE YOU CONSIDERED CULTURAL SIGNIFICANCE WHEN STARTING THIS THREAD?

IT DIDN'T MAKE MUCH OF AN IMPACT WHEN IT WAS CREATED, SO IT MUST SUCK

I GUESS WE CAN SHUT IT DOWN THEN
