Way cool!  I must admit I do not recognize the audio clip.  Is it truly something classic  I have missed or is it recent?

I'm not sure.   Someone just sent it to me, and I clicked on it.  Don't know anything about the creator.  Makes you think how that joke deserves to be on like the Simpsons or Family Guy...   The thing is...its true.  I remember being "done" like this by some Prog freak back in the early 80s, and then I did it to other people over the years.   LOL

It's sort of a play on Roundabout. Most likely they couldn't get the copyright to play the actual song and made a song similar to it.

Hilarious! Sounds nothing like Roundabout though. Will the whole episode be focused on prog?

Sounds like Close to the Edge, no?

Spacey intro with a similar melodic line to Roundabout... similar tempo.... energetic and predominant bassline....
 
Of course the vocal line does sound like Anderson on CTTE.

Just saw the episode and, yes, the initial song is a placeholder/homage to CTTE (guessing they couldn't or didn't bother getting the rights).  There is more to go along with that short clip and let me be the first to say: Badass

Yep is a mixture of Roundabout and Close to the edge, comming from an OSIBISA coverr.
 
But honestly, I find the whole cartoon dull and boring.
 
Hurt me? I don't believe this thing is able to hurt anybody.

Adult Swim based shows seem to reference prog very often, mostly Rush. The Venture Brothers seems pretty funny, but it's one of those shows I'd have to watch from the beginning to get into it. I'll probably pick up Season 1 on DVD at some point.

I made a thread about this after watching the episode last night, but it was moved, and the title got changed. 

It was very funny. Doc was telling Dean that Prog was part of pursuing a career in super science.

Aqua Teen Hunger Force even got Neil Peart to play himself in the ATHF movie.

Ivan, I was joking abou the "hurt" thing sheesh...  The thing pokes fun at Prog wonks!  Simple as that.  I'm proud to be a Prog wonk, but from the rest of the world's perspective we're considered a little obessive and possibly dorky.  And the cartoon pokes fun at that.

I know you were joking Akajazzman, but honestly found it full of cliches about Prog.

The thing is, only someone who knew prog could have come up with that. So, I think one of the guys is a prog fan, and was poking fun at himself.

I just remembered a great line. Dean says, "Hit me aagain!" and Doc says, "Okay, but no air drumming this time. Bruford can change the tempo so fast you could snap your wrist."
