Off the top of my head the only band I feel is missing is Van Halen. Good job with the list otherwise though. I'll have to think about this.

Maybe you can edit it(actually I know you can because I have created polls myself)and put Van Halen where that last option is(the one that currently has no band name listed). Just a suggestion.

Nice list but in lieu of Zeppelin or Sabbath I had to go with Grand Funk.

Europe

I wouldn't classify them as arena rock but since they're there they get my vote.

You put the poll again in the wrong section of the forum. Lol

I guessed we might have an interesting debate on what is and isn't Arena Rock, along the same lines as the great Neo-Prog debate. Wink
 
Europe were listed as an Arena Rock band on Google when I looked them up just a few minutes before posting this poll, so I was going by their definition. They're not exclusively Arena Rock though - they're also listed as a Hard Rock / Heavy Metal / Glam Metal band on Wikipedia, which sounds like a good description to me. Smile

That's no problem at all, and amazingly, Van Halen just happened to fall into the correct alphabetical position at  the tail end of the poll. Wink

Not to worry. Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin were both included in my recent Hard Rock poll. Smile

Non prog topics and polls go in the general music. You are not a newbie anymore, you got no excuse.

Many of the bands in the poll ARE Prog-related though, which is why I posted it in the Prog Polls forum. Wink

Boston is the band that really opened up my tastes. Styx and Kansas were my semi-introduction to prog. Voting boston

Actually, Pink Floyd would win this poll going away ... well ... maybe not ... not enough folks got to see the monster in the years that mattered!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... now try finding your own mirror/art! www.pedrosena.com

I've seen Bucks Fizz play in an arena too, although they're hardly Arena Rock. LOL

If you're going to classify Kansas as arena rock, then they're the clear choice. Nobody else on that list can hang with them.

Voted Queen. One of a kind greatness.
