Not exactly a reference, nor was it in a public place, but I've just heard "A Whiter Shade of Pale" in the end of a "House" episode.

I'm sure this has been posted approximately a million times before now.

That is probably the most awesome reference I have seen so far. At least it went to mention more than just one band. And interesting seeing the Fragile cover in the back of the stack when Dean's looking at the King Crimson cover.

Not to mention one of the guys' dislike of Genesis.

And the many too many joke references to Genesis.

Especially this (probably been shown several times already) :

^ Some weird jokes there.

Not exactly a reference and not in a public place:
Been watching this episode ''Short & Curlies' of "That 70's Show". In it Donna was wearing this "Kansas - Point of Know Return" T-shirt.

"Oh no, you're not ready to step into the Court of the Crimson King yet!" LOL


If In The Court Of The Crimson King can turn you into a evil scientist, I really don't what to know what you'll turn into if you popped in Red. LOL

Back on topic, a parody of In The Court's album cover was shown in a promotional music video for the animé Panty & Stocking With Garterbelt.

Tonight's American Dad! episode featured Steve and Snot rocking out on air guitar to the 2112 Overture.

in some rarely known USSR-made cartoon (don't remember the name), there was instrumental part from "Firth of Fifth" Genesis song, used as soundtrack (uncredited)

I think there is more references, as it was common for USSR film makers do not respect copyrights and don't mention credits of performers. I remember a movie which had a lot of Pink Floyd tunes uncredited

Awaken77, you reminded me of a similar encounter! I've got a DVD somewhere of a 70's cheapo Ninja movie (totally forget the generic title lol!), and the entire film had both Pink Floyd's `Meddle' album and Steve Hillage's `Green' tracks playing constantly!

Hmmmm....Floyd + Hillage + Ninja's = perfection in my mind!

Mystery Science Theater 3000:


Austin Powers:


There was also a scene I can't find on Youtube:
Dr.Evil: "There will be two Moon units. Moon Unit Alpha and Moon Unit Zappa."

Smartpatrol! Of course!! I never picked up on that Zappa one in Austin Powers, and it's so obvious!

I remember being in a packed cinema when the `Alan Parsons Project' line came up, and only about 5 people in the whole audience cracking up laughing, and I was thinking `What's wrong with you people?! Learn your prog!'

There is a funny bit in American Pyscho where the main character tries to explain to some girl that Genesis masterpeice is Duke. He also waxes lyrical about Phil Collins as a solo artist.
 


Both of those references are absolutely hilarious. I was gonna share the American Psycho bit, but you beat me to it.
Lots to love about the Prog Metal powerhouse band, 'Threshold.'

I heard the exact same section in a some cell phone commercial on the phone ... at least that's how I remember it: it was a cell phone commercial three-four years ago.



Yup. That's true. YES is in there. Beginning of the movie doc. Very good movie too I might add.

There is a movie called 'THE JACKET' that stars ADRIEN BRODY and DEREK DICK AKA FISH makes a cameo appearance as one of the mental patients in the psych ward. Pretty funny. Also, FISH got old man!!!! Too much saucing it up over years I guess. ;)

That American Psycho bit must have been mentioned at least five times over the past 12 months. Just saying.

Moon herself appeared in National Lampoon's European Vacation.

But that kinda brings us into the realm of "six degrees of Prog separation".  Confused

Excuse me for my ignorance guys, but anybody know what the song is that Dean was listening to in that Venture Brothers clip? Or was it just made it up by the show? It sounds awesome!
