It would appear that you are asking for a List

I feel pride for very few things in my life so far. And having a slightly alternative taste in music isn't one of them.

Not sure where you're going with this apart from asking people to list songs they really like by Prog bands
(which has been flogged to death)

OR

Do you mean for people to give examples of songs by Prog artists that those who ordinarily profess to loathe Prog might actually be forced to admit to liking ? (and therefore the source of your pride?)

(Similar to a 'I Can't believe It's Not Mainstream!' adverts?

(I'm confused)

My sister hates prog but she loves Carpet Crawlers, Roundabout and every gushy Greg Lake ballad.

Pride implies a certain amount of achievement.


The artists should feel pride. Not the listeners.

I can't dance and Heat of the moment.

Nah, just kidding... or not? Tongue

As topographicbroadways said, musicians should be proud of making music that's appreciated by a significative number of people worldwide (and that's for every music genre).... I'd be very proud of having a band as good as King Crimson or Phish for instance.

The first one that came to mind was Siberian Khatru. That song makes me proud to be human.

The extreme prog metal songs. Especially my favorite, Serenity painted death of Opeth.
Mikael Akerfeldt for fans of Opeth who don't like his growls (and generally the growls): If they don't like it then they are pussies.

Extreme prog metal rules!!!

I agree.

The same could be said of sports teams and their fans, but... Ouch

I believe I can say that I'm proud of Robert Fripp as a fellow human being. I want Fripp's babies.
