    Seeing as how progressive music is clearly the best genre of music.....

    These are some of mine:
    Pain of Salvation
    Dream Theater
    Pink Floyd
    Steven Wilson
    Porcupine Tree
    Symphony X

    I could go on.....

    In no particular order, except for the first few.

    Yes I consider Radiohead and Muse prog. Though honestly speaking, while Radiohead might not be a very proggy band in the traditional sense, I feel they should be considered prog. Muse definitely fits in with the Prog bands, especially with OoS and Absolution. Both are very good experimental bands though.

    Metallica. They are prog. Especially their late 80s shit. Puppets has so many complex parts and shiz. And Justice, the entire album, has some weird time signatures and stuff. But yeah.

    Dream Theater
    Animals As Leaders
    'tallica
    I'm not big on prog really. System of a down has some proggy elements i guess. I can never calculate "Question!"'s time signature. I love them. And I'm drunk.

    I agree with you about Radiohead and Muse. Two of my favourite bands, but I consider them more Alternative than Progressive.
