The Gods of Progressive Rock, and a band consisting living legends:
John Petrucci (Guitars and vocals - overwhelming)
James Labrie (Vocals - Better than best)
John Myung (Bass - great but seems to be by his band members)
Jordan Rudess (Keyboards, Continuum and lap steel guitar - petrucci's music twin)
Mike Portnoy (Drums, Percussion, Vocals - One of the greatest drummers)
Every1 should get DT's new album, Octavarium, it ROCKS!!
Dream Theater rules over the popular fucks in terms of 'music'(but music is all that matters!) and cannot be compared to crappy-rappy music shits.
Bitch: "yo dumbass, rap is the best, dream theater sux shit"
Me: "Well, that's cuz u don't know real music, and suck the mic 24/7, cocksucker.
Me: "Yeah you STFU, or i'll call Bush"\

Train of Thought
Progressive Metal band formed in Long Island, New York, USA in 1985. They are said to be one of the innovators of the Prog-Metal genre. The band is composed of five prodigious classicaly-trained musicians - James LaBrie (Vocals), John Petrucci (Guitars), Jordan Rudess (Keyboards), John Myung (Bass Guitar) and Mike Portnoy (Drums and Percussion). Their music was initially inspired by the band Rush and influences by bands like Queensryce and Queen can be heard too.

Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence
the progressive band whose technical proficiency on their instruments cannot be topped by any other rock group
Most people cannot comprehend how incredible the music of Dream Theater is compared to average popular rock crap.
prog metal is our religion...
dream theater is our god...
do i need to put an example?
A prog-metal band hailing from the New York area, have been around for almost 20 years. A band that a lot of people would not like if they heard them. Most of their songs are over 10 minutes long, over the top musicianship, long jams, nothing that could possibly reach the mainstream audience in this day and age. However, they have a large cult follwoing all over the world for those who can tolerate this kind of music, myself included. Influenced by prog acts like Yes, Rush, Pink Floyd, and King Crimson, with the crushing metal of Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, and Black Sabbath, Dream theater has forged a sound that has brought them to the top of progressive music and are the true definition of prog-metal. If you're into prog music and enjoy metal, give Dream Theater a listen and perhaps you will join the cult.
Dream Theater Fan: Yo dude, you listen to Dream Theater?
Dude: Dream what?
A kick ass progressive metal band from NY. They constantly get tons of shit from stupid preps (see: sluts and teenybopper) who listen to crappy pop music such as Nsync and Backstreet Boys and tons of other pop shit. Preps and jocks have no claim to call good music shit because the music they listen to is shit.
prep: hey dream theater sux nsync rulz man
jock: YO BITCH DREAM THEATER SUX GANGSTA RAP RULZ YO
Me: The music you listen to is shit.
Progressive metal band that has existed since 1985, famed for their instrumental prowess and compositional skill. Its three core members, guitarist John Petrucci, bassist John Myung, and drummer Mike Portnoy were students at the Berklee College of Music. They are perhaps the only prog-metal band to be signed to a major label. Nay-sayers claim that DT's music is nothing but pretentious wankery. With one or two brief exceptions, the above accusation is outright farcical.
The new Dream Theater album, due in early June, is gonna rock!
One of several bands that I actually consistently like.
"Who stole my Dream Theater CD? There's going to be a reckoning!"
