2) U.K.

3) Yes

4) Genesis (1970 - 1980 notice none of that stupid pop stuff is there lol)

5) Emerson, Lake, and Palmer (ever notice that Carl Palmer speeds up during his fills? Good drummer, but not steady)

Considering only classic European 70s Prog:

Can
King Crimson
Genesis (with Peter Gabriel obviously)
Yes
Pink Floyd (up through Dark Side of the Moon obviously, and "Echoes" is my favorite piece by them)

With a broad interpretation of what could count as progressive rock:

Can
King Crimson
Les Rallizes Denudes (obscure Japanese psych rock band)
Godspeed You Black Emperor
Mono

Wow, who the hell are these "Emerson Lake and Palmer" that I keep on seeing? I am surprised to see these guys keep on popping up, I have never heard of them before.

I'm sorry to inform you this, but Queen is not a progressive rock band, but an art metal band (not quite complex enough to be a progressive rock band). Close though. And I do like them.
