Several from this list,
 
In alphabetical order:
  1. Camel: Boooooooring
  2. Dream Theater: Not in my top 1'000,000
  3. Gentle Giant: Never could get what's the passion for this band.
  4. Opeth: Could be a top 20, but those growls make it horrendous
  5. Supertramp: Good band, not remotely prog to be in a prog list
  6. Van Der Graff Generator: As hard as their name
  7. Frank Zappa: Call me what you want, i can't stand his music.

Ayreon is the only one that stands out as not belonging.

Can't stand:

Dream Theater
Ayreon
Marillion
Riverside
Pain of Salvation

Don't mind that much, but still nowhere near my top 5000:
 
Porcupine Tree
Mike Oldfield
Rush

OK, but still very far from my top 100:

Bacamarte
Harmonium
Supertramp
Mahavishnu Orchestra

The rest got atleast one album I really like.

Voted for Ayreon, I loath them, but the rest are devoid of anything worth rating so high.

Camel
Caravan
Harmonium
Rush
Supertramp

Yes and Porcupine Tree only avoid the list because they each have one good album in mediocer careers.

Unfamilier with Bacmarte and Mike Oldfield.
Spending more than I should on Prog since 2005

I'm not a big fan of growls either but "Damnation" would be in my top 100.I guess if i actually made a top 100 list there'd be a lot of these bands not represented.I just think they're all deserving except for AYREON. My list would have to have some krautrock,Canterbury and Experimental/Post metal in there.

BTW.....Is there no ELP in the top 100?
 
 
 
 
ELP makes their first appearance at #54
 
but this poll only was able to fit in the bands for the Top 49.
 
 
ELP  would definitely be in my top 100 Smile
Prog On!

Of the ones I've heard, I dislike Dream Theater the most.  I'd say they're a fairly average metal band IMO, down to the annoying vocals...LTE, on the other hand, I really enjoy.

There are some bands that I don't know, but the others are all pretty major bands to me and worthy of top 100.

Funny thing, is it normal that I consider more than 100 bands to be worthy of top 100? LOL

I'm very curious: what is your favourite Opeth album? Big smile

I disagree with those polls, because I think they are only an excuse to bash bands people dislike. Personally speaking, I have no Top 100, nor do I think that my dislike for Band X or Band Y should be treated as proof of said bands'  lack of interest or worth. Anyway, if I had to choose, at least half of the bands mentioned here would not make my hypothetical Top 100 list. Here are the ones that would definitely make it (I'd rather go for a positive approach):

Caravan
Genesis (if only because of Selling England by the Pound)
Gentle Giant
King Crimson
Jethro Tull
Mahavishnu Orchestra
Rush
Supertramp
Pink Floyd
PFM (especially after yesterday eveningWink)
Yes
VDGG

None of them have done an album which really deserves to be in the top 100 as far as I am concerned. All the rest thoroughly deserve their status.

If pushed, I'd go for VDGG. They were generally considered very mediocre in the 70s (except in Italy, I gather) and not much has changed for me.

I don't think anyone ever considered VdGG to be mediocre. There were (and still are) lots of people who disliked them, but no-one can honestly put the sticker "mediocre" on them.

BaldJean and I; I am the one in blue.

I'd say Jethro Tull. They're enjoyable but not as much as some of the other bands listed.

I haven't  really heard Harmonium, Pain of Salvation, or Bacamarte to make a decision on them.

Riverside
Porcupine Tree
Pain of Salvation (awful band name by the way)
Dream Theater
Bacamarte
Ayreon
all of these would be good choices but I voted for the one with the most emo sounding band name
as much as I'd have loved to vote for Genesis I do consider Nursery Cryme top 100 worthy

My problem with this poll is although certain bands or artists may not appeal to my tastes I can easily see why they are in some peoples top 100 every band /artist listed is of some high quality . I can't vote because the one I vote for will be the one I have spent less time trying to get into.  Smile

I'm just relieved people aren't voting for Mike Oldfield. I was afraid he'd suffer in this poll but he's doing great :)

Though I have not heard Bacamarte yet, I think I will not dislike them as much as Riverside.
