    It took another extensive research to demonstrate that a correction had to be made: it's Van Der Graaf Generator

    Shame. Attacking traditional metaphors of rock n roll and getting them banned, just by being too young to get it.

    The metaphor is nothing compared to the truly abusive feuding that actually goes on between musicians. But nevermind that.

    Syd, don't fret. I'm not offended, and I doubt anybody else is. I was just being a curmudgeon this morning. My apologies. As I said, carry on...
    Short-term thinkers are rewarded with reelection, while those who dare to take seriously our responsibility to future generations commonly find themselves out of office.

    Nice catch and what's even worse was that I "created" this thread at four o'clock in morning after a refreshing three hours sleep and let me tell you when you've only had three hours sleep this thread seemed like one of the most brilliant ideas that I had ever conceived - there were going to be "Battle of the Bands" for everything from psychedelic rock to country rock to blues rock to punk rock to... well.... you get the point, eh?

    Except it kind of misfired by introducing language and imagery that was actually more suited to extreme cage matches (which have their place on the forum as anyone who has ever visited a Wagner thread will attest) but the groove here in NCM is different and the thread just didn't work out as intended. I have no idea why it is still in place after having requested that it be deleted but perhaps the moderators were also up at three o'clock in the morning and the are under the impression that it is as brilliant as I thought it was... maybe it is...

    Now on to the mistakes... I misspelled Van Der Graaf Generator, accidentally worked off of the wrong list and added Kansas, PFM, and U.K. to the poll instead of making them alternate write-in candidates.

    The groups which were supposed to be added to the poll itself were Porcupine Tree, Renaissance, and Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich… I would have preferred Bucks Fizz myself but I knew that I would never hear the end of it.

    I'm not making any more polls at four o'clock in the morning... especially the ones that seem unusually brilliant.

    From now on it's nothing but country music for me... country music all day and all of the night...

    Onwards to "Country Music... Thank God!"

    I voted for:

    Genesis
    Gentle Giant
    KC
    PFM
    UK
    VDGG
    Zappa

    Possible write ins:

    Banco (Italian band, as good as many bands on the list)
    Magma (as good as music, of any genre, gets!)
    Thinking Plague (possibly the best avant-garde prog band)
    National Health (my favorite Canterbury band)
    Pain of Salvation (the best prog-metal band IMO)
