I don't think anyone mentioned GRUNGE rock like Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Mad Season, Screaming Trees. VERY important genre to be left out if i do say so myself.

Yeah, I agree here, Grunge needs to be added to the list of Rock, it is an important form of rock (imo)

You have Lamb of God as Hardcore I think they belong somewhere along the lines of Groove Metal. That seems to fit them a little more

The plastic finger tips he created had nothing to do with the way he hit chords since they were on his fret hand. And, in any case, it's generally the progressions themselves (chromatic, tritone, modal scale), which gives metal its character, not just how the chords are hit.

Next, you'll be saying that his plastic finger tips gave birth to palm-muting (or pizzicato)...
Yeah it's true he got the tip cut off not the whole finger. He began with a metal piece on the tip of his finger And try rubbin any piece of metal it gives a new tone.

I think Black Sabbath undoubtedly gave birth to the heavy metal movement and laid down its foundations such as image and sound etc but the fact that they were like most bands of their day, originally a blues rock outfit really goes against what heavy metal would become, for this reason Judas Priest could be seen as the first true heavy metal band because of the complete lack of blues influence and their double lead guitar etc.

I suppose you could put pomp rock somewhere in between prog rock and arena rock because groups like Styx and Kansas could easiily fit into this genre as to a degree could both Boston and Toto, Steve Perry Journey less so.

Grunge might be a long way from Prog but songs like "21st Century Schizoid Man" and Some King Crimson material would have definately been a huge influence on Prog.

Even grungy sounding groups like The Smashing Pumpkins were probably closer to Prog than grunge in spirit at least, given the complex arrangements and mellotron stylings in their music.

Gentle Giant is great! Also King Krimson, Yes, Rush, all great prog groups. Let's not forget Frank Zappa!

And there is a connection from prog to grunge. Listen to Soundgarden songs like outshined have a definite prog influence!
