Well it's a yes for King Crimson from me. I'm still delving into their discography but really enjoying what i'm hearing. I have One More Red Nightmare on right now and it might be my favourite song of theirs, in fact Red is just brilliant for the most part. I'm not a proggy by any means but King Crimson are very easy to like, just listen to 21st Century Schizoid Man, an awesome amount of strutter and heaviness for one song.
Very good stuff.

"In The Court of the Crimson King" is SO ****ING GOOD.

One of the VERY few prog bands out there that don't bore me, and unlike alot of prog bands the lyrics aren't distractingly awful. ANd that entire first album is amazing.

KC are arguably the best prog band so a definite yes. Plus they influenced bands that weren't even in their genre, such as Nirvana (who had TONS of influence on bands, though some sucked XD.)

Same goes for me. Progressive rock isn't my favourite genre (though I don't dislike it), but King Crimson is fantastic.

I'm not gonna lie, I can't stand half of Fripp's stuff, but King Crimson completely defined a revolution in music. And they had some fantastic, seminal albums. Lizard, Red, In The Wake of Poseidon are all great.

So if we vote no on this Boo Boo is for sure taking the blue pill?

Seriously though, this is an easy yes for me, I'll be adding my vote fashionably late.

King Crimson meets all the criteria (for my sans personal bias hall of fame standards). Critical acclaim, hardcore following of fans, leaders of a genre, longevity and the ability to never get stale despite, solid and consistent record sales and all this while staying comfortably on the edge of the mainstream.

It would be crazy in KC went in on the first HOF ballot and Pink Floyd did not.

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.

I know they are probably really good (based on what everyone says), and someone who's name eludes me uploaded their first album. I probably would vote yes, but I won't vote at all because I haven't heard any.

I am not a fan of teh prog, but as Piss Me Off pointed out when Elliott Smith was up for nomination, it would be crazy to see a MB Hall Of Fame without them. At least I dig In The Court Of The Crimson King, so it's a yes from me.
