The best of the best of the best of the BEST! If you hate this then you're waste of human flesh and blood! - Nord666

Music for smart people.
No other rock subgenres can match it in terms of complexity and over all musicianship as well being adventurous. Yes, Genesis, King Crimson, Jethro Tull and others might seem like dinosaurs to some but they influenced many of todays newer prog bands. Aside from that most people know about Pink Floyd and Rush but it's time to exlore not just the first bands I mentioned here but the genre as a whole. Unless you view music as aural wallpaper you won't be disappointed.
Don't be turned off to this amazing genre that say "it's for smart people only" or "you wouldn't understand it" This genre of music changed my life. Simply put: It is music without limits.
This makes other rock seem boring and bland by comparisonV 4 Comments
I like punk rock so much
Come on,punk rock should be on #1,is the best genre of rock!
The best of the best, the stones, the doors
Just listen Joe Bonamassa ''Just Got Paid''...
A very wide and popular sub-genre, it is everywhere, if you don't listen to alternative rock, you're either living in an indigenous tribe or, god forbid, a psychopath.
It gives such a wide range of creativity without being tied to one specific genre
I would've voted for heavy metal, but seeing this at only 6 is disappointing.
This is honestly my Favorite Musical Genre of All time (prog would be a close second), and I feel for good reason too. I mean what is there not to like about Psychedelic Rock. It is I feel the most creative music genre of all time. The Fuzz Guitars make the music sound awesome as well. With some of the most talented band ever being Psychedelic rock such as The Beatles (Later on in their Career), Pink Floyd (Early), Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Jefferson Airplane, The Doors, and even the more obscure bands like Blue Cheer, Love, and Iron Butterfly, I also like or may even love a lot of the modern Psychedelic bands like Tame Impala, The Black Angles, The Flaming Lips, etc. And without it we would not have Prog, Kraut, Acid, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, and much more! - RogerWatersfan1999
It makes me feel great and out of touch with this world, I love it
just no. - sweetbeef
Why do I have to explain my pick when it's based exclusively on personal taste? It feels completely unnescesary :S
Religion + metal= doesn't mix - sweetbeef
Combination of Jazz and Rock make this an awesome genre. - Nord666
Just put everything above Christian metal, for the love of Zeus.
So sweet Euphoric...
Oh come on! Post punk is better than Krautrock! Id put it in my top 5
Grindcore is a genre of metal. Not rock.
