Dazed and confused, Stairway to heaven, No quarter, Kashmir, IN THE LIGHT! ACHILLES LAST STAND! - DarkSideOfDragons

Led zep well say no more did it for me

174 Asia

They are Yes's rivals and they are all the way back here. Such a shame to see the direction changing in our youth. Like seriously, Muse? System of a Down? Deep Purple (They are a good band but not prog rock).

I liked Asia and Alpha but they are not prog... - SammySpore

175 Grateful Dead Grateful Dead
176 The Beatles The Beatles The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. The members consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. They were soon known as the foremost and most influential act of rock era. Rooted in skiffle, beat, and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented more.

The Beatles are the greatest band of all time no doubt. However, they aren't a prog rock band.

I agree, they aren't a prog rock band, but they were an influential band for many prog rock bands like Pink Floyd. And A day in the life and Happiness is a warm gun are progressive. - DarkSideOfDragons
