I personally think Yes is more important than Genesis by far, and maybe on the same level as Jethro Tull.

Well I wouldn't say they are way more important than them, I'd say KC are slightly more important than Yes, because they were considered the original leaders of the movement. But from say 71 to 73 Yes were the most popular of the prog bands, and they were largely responsable for pushing prog into the mainstream, though Jethro Tull were quite big too, they gained mainstream success a good while before Genesis, ELP and Rush ever did, and Floyd weren't super popular yet, and for a while Yes were even more popular than them. For the record I would also like to see Genesis and KC here too, and obviously Pink Floyd deserve to be in. I think those 4 should at least be the prog representitives in the hall of fame.

I think KC, PF and Radiohead will be the Prog reppers.

I think those three are near shoe-ins

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

Yeh, KC is uber popular here, Radiohead has the endorsement of Pitchfork and PF is... Pink bloody Floyd.

I think Yes lost guys, I'm over it, let's move on. Maybe you should do the next nomination Luke.

Well, Radiohead's status as a "prog" band is a very controversial one.

But their status as a MB Hall of Fame isn't quite as controversial.

I already said from the start that my choice of Yes for the hall of fame would be a controversial one, but I didn't know it would get this heated. Oh well, at least I tried.

And I'm confident enough that King Crimson will make it in at the very least.
