The ultimate poll of genesis, the popular genesis of birth, birth of beginnings of genres. Birth of space rock, birth of prog rock and birth of heavy metal/rock. This is not the poll for historical nittpicking but poll of historical benchmarks.
So whom is the supreme pioneer.

Since this is a poll of historical benchmarks, I think King Crimson should win this one.

Very tough choice strictly on the basis of "historical benchmarks".  It could be argued that Syd & the Floyd invented psychedelic rock...Sabbath invented heavy metal...and Crimso invented prog. 

No vote for Floyd because there were other psychedelic bands blooming independently at the same time.  Same for Crimso (though none with such a dominant mellotron presence).  Sabbath though was something completely new...they created heavy metal with a mix of dark lyrical subject matter, very heavy guitar, and a vocalist who sounded like a wailing banshee Evil Smile

I can't believe I'm going to do this, but I'm going to vote for Sabbath. They influenced many more bands and they had a sound, just like KC, that was completely their own. Both bands have also revised their sound in the beginning of the '80s.

These are two bands that shouldn't really compete for a vote, but both are quite a few notches above the vastly overrated Floyd.

Pink Floyd personally, but Crimson basically created prog. They are one of the pioneers.

Crimson for me. ITCOTCK was a (if not "the") cornerstone of prog.
Sabbath was fundamental for the development of both heavy metal and stoner rock.
Floyd, while well respected for their early space/psychedelic rock, is mostly known today for bringing a simplified brand of prog for the masses. They are a prog gateway band, but they aren't as important/influential as the other two.

So: KC > BS > PF
Two random guys agreed to shake hands. Just Because. They felt like it, you know. It was an agreement of sorts...a random agreement.

Pink Floyd just slightly edging out KC for me. I like Black Sabbath a lot too though. The funny thing is PF is the only one of these bands I haven't seen live(although I just recently saw Roger Waters).

I'm not a King Crimson fan.. I'm all about Yes, Genesis, and ELP. But on this forum I will vote for them every time against those other two choices and just did so right here.

Dont get me wrong, I like and respect pink floyd but there just isnt enough content to get into.  They were too busy bickering and didn't put out enough music.  Not enough releases.  King Crimson has reinvented itself countless times and seems to be at the helm of the definition of prog.  And I know there are Pink Floyd fanatics that will hate me for this.  So go ahead and hate, but I still like them too.  Therefore, I voted for King Crimson.  (Sorry but never been a fan of Black Sabbath.  It is respectable stuff in its own right though).
listen to streaming stuff! no commercials!
