These are really lame choices. Classic rock is not a genre. Alternative is argubly one, but like prog it's incredibly broad, it's weird to compare such broad genres to stuff like goth and hair metal. I mean couldnt goth just fall under alternative and hair metal under metal? Why add them?

yeah, the choices are not great at all. this shouldnt really be a poll. it should be an open question - what is your favourite 'genre' of rock? then people can put it down in their own terms.

Prog isn't really a style as much as it is a structure. So voting for it seems odd, but my choice teeters somewhere between heavy metal, punk, and prog.

Default genre

my favorite genre should probably be heavy metal, since i listen to 90% of it, but i picked prog. i just love me some weird ass time sigs.

Best prog list
1. Rush
2. Dream Theater
3. Between the Buried and Me
4. Protest the Hero

The last two obviously a little heavier. i just love techy guitar parts.

After trying to find that out for a while, I think its usually just considered Psychedelic Rock. Not a perfect fit but t makes sense.
