Did someone mention The Mars Volta yet. It seems they are ranked among the best Prog. Bands Of All Time List along with Rush, Pink Floyd, Yes, Genesis, King Crimson, Porcupine Tree...
Personally never heard of them but their on the top 12 prog. band list on Rolling Stones. I'm planning on trying them. It's like progressive punk.
It's the thing with shelving bands under subgenres as if these things have specific components to "fit". Mars Volta is not on the same shelve as other "prog" bands, imo. Not my thing at all but I give to them the creativity thumbs up.
They… are not for everyone.
