That really annoys me as in my book the term 'boy band' refers to a bunch of vocalist pretty boys, put together by the industry, who generally don't write their own songs nor play any instruments.
Yep. I think The Beatles has only jokingly hes been referred to as the first boy band, really. The Monkees were factually the first actual boy band. Chosen from auditions, and put together by two TV producers for The Monkees TV-series - and originally not allowed to play instruments or write their own songs (although they certainly weren't without talent).

Hard to tell. As music influencers none of them will be remembered. But The Monkees aren't forgotten. Some "contemporary" boy band-songs might be remembered in similar ways as I'm a Believer, I'm Not Your Stepping Stone and Daydream Believer is remembered. If the song material is strong enough, people in the future won't care how the song came about. Boy bands, Britney Spears - there's not much of a difference really. Both are pop-products. That said, there hasn't been a lot of profilic boy bands in the last couple of decades, has there? I guess One Direction & BTS... 

+btw I think Ringo Starr is/was a great drummer.

Avant Prog/RIO 

Tech/Extreme Metal 

Zeuhl 

Like the Jazz equivalent, you have to be as talented as John Coltrane, as in Ascension, to play it well without it sounding irritating, which most don't

Progressive Metal, got cliched/boring very fast, especially the drumming

The exact same three least-loved prog genres for me too. Smile

Neither should be here on PA if you ask me. LOL

I don't there I have a "hated" prog genre since I pretty much love all of them, but if there is one that definitely took me a while to get into, its definitely brutal prog. Groups like Ruins, black midi, P.O.N., and Hella, while great, definitely took me a while to truly love.

It's a tie between Prog Country and Prog Rap.

Anything with cookie monster vocals is an automatic 'no' for me.   

Other than a few scary things I've heard in the Post Rock/Math Rock subgenre, that's about it.

If Marillion had growling vocals, that would just about cover most of my dislikes.

It'd be interesting to hear something like Prog Rap, Prog Country, Prog R&B, Prog Ambient, Prog Blues, etc. 

Not sure some of those could exist, but hey, it could work
Called out a tune, but I never saw the face

Some of them actually do... progressive rap and progressive soul are already established (sub)genres, although they weren't recognized as such when those aritsts first started. Progressive soul would cover artists like War, 70s-era Earth Wind & Fire, Seal, Janelle Monae, etc. And Progressive rap would cover artitsts like Madvillain, Kendrick Lamar, M.I.A., and Kool Keith

Well said!  I actually met Weird Al in Tulsa, Oklahoma USA when he was auditioning "weird" acts for his offbeat movie "UHF!"  Well, I shook his hand, he seemed very cool!

Although some bands like Opeth or Mastodon seem to me very good and have albums of high quality, in general the bands of the Tech/Extreme Prog Metal subgenre are difficult to assimilate because of their guttural vocals and their intemperate and hostile instrumental developments. But more than hating the subgenre, I would say that they force a great effort to understand it and not give up trying.
