Tokio hotel Humanoid top 10!

Tokio Hotel Humanoid top 1, sorry not sorry.

234 Genesis - Genesis
235 American Idiot - Green Day

This would definitely be higher up on the list if it was about the greatest punk or alternative albums. But this is about progressive rock, and punk is pretty much the opposite. So to all the people who think this album belongs on the list... You obviously have no idea what progressive rock is.

Green Day is NOT prog. Check out the genre of each album on Wikipedia. Having a concept album doesn't make the album prog. The Who had Tommy, a concept album, but it was hard rock -- NOT progressive. Zappa's 1st album Freak Out (1966) was a concept album, psychedelic - not prog. Zappa got progressive on his 8th album, Hot Rats (1969).

While Green Day is not really a progressive rock band, this is a concept album which I would call art rock. It tells the story of St. Jimmy, a suburban punk, and his quests. Listen to the whole album and follow the story, it will blow your mind. Some of the songs are progressive (St. Jimmy, Homecoming), but the album as a whole is art rock.

Not prog rock at all.
