Probably the most representative Progressive-Art Rock band ever.
Albums like Nursery Cryme, Foxtrot and Selling England By The Pound are absolute masterpieces of 20th century's music.
The only real Genesis is the Mk2 lineup: Peter Gabriel (voice, flute), Steve Hackett (guitar), Mike Rutherford (rithm guitar, 12 strings guitar), Tony Banks (keyboards) and Phil Collins (drums, backing vocals). After Gabriel's and Hackett's departure (respecctively in 1975 and 1977), the band committed the most disgusting musical suicide of all times. Under the influence of Collins, Genesis kept the original name but threw away a decade of good music and intellectual honesty by becoming a ridiculous pop band. People who declare to prefer the Collins-era Genesis are likely to be fucking morons or not interested in good music at all, thus deserving the title of fucking morons anyway.

Gabriel and Hackett then started a fruitful and highly appreciated solo career, while Collins began writing corny, useless love songs.
Banks released some solo works too; nothing interesting or musically relevant, though. Rutherford formed pop rock group "Mike and The Mechanics", a forgettable easy listening hits factory.
If you put a bunch of progressive-rock lovers into a room and asked them to vote for their all-time favorite classic prog group, I suspect that Genesis would win handily. A perfect example of this popularity is the fact that no other group has so strongly influenced the so-called neo-prog bands of the 80s and 90s. When it was time for prog to make a comeback, it was mostly Genesis to which the new young musicians turned. Would there even be a Marillion, Pendragon, IQ, Citizen Cane, Jadis, Magellan, Glass Hammer, Cairo, Crucible, Like Wendy, Flamborough Head, Sylvan, or Metaphor (to name only a few) if there had never been a Genesis? No way!

If a Genesis enters your life do not let her for anything because you will regret it in the long run. She is amazing she can easily make snyone smile. She maybe lost at times but that is what makes her the way she is. Bubble Tea give this girl vanilla chai bubble tea and she will love you forever. She will always be there for you. Always someone to make you smile even when she is not trying.

She can make any guy fall for her cause she is that good.
Always have a Genesis in your life cause you will be the most happiest person ever cause she will make sure you smile everyday and every moment of your life.

1. From Latin; literally, beginning.

2. The first book of the Bible, supplying the earliest history of creation available to man.

3. Scientific term for the origin of a subject.

4. A progressive rock band starring first Peter Gabriel, and later, Phil Collins.

5. In Star Trek III:

a. An experimental device that became the bone of contention between William Shatner and Christopher Lloyd.

b. A short-lived planet named after the Genesis device.

6. A game console from Sega.
1. I started at the beginning, with the Genesis of the word Genesis.

2. You can tell that Moses compiled Genesis from a number of sources because he repeatedly started from the beginning, and retold the first 7 days in the next telling as taking place in one day, because the word day is a metaphor.

3. In reality, the Genesis of a planet requires billions of years rather than a week of literal days, as in myth, or protomatter, as in Star Trek III.

4. Whether Genesis was better with Peter or with Phil is still hotly debated. (I prefer Phil, but that's just my personal taste.)

5. a. "Give me Genesis!"

5. b. "Genesis?!? Genesis planet is forbidden!"

6. Sega Genesis.

The kind of person who can make you laugh so hard you cry. She is perfect in every way and is unstoppable. She is the best friend anyone could ask for and always knows what is right. (She is usually smiling, or laughing, or...bouncing)
She is very cool, sweet, and very bubbly. She is so fun to be around.
She can make any guy fall for her because she is that good.
If you have a Genesis you dont want to let her go.
There are so many words to describe a Genesis.
She is smart, beautiful, hilarious, bouncy, crazy (in a good way), fun, hot, creative, and awesome!
Dude: Ooh who's that chick

Michael: Thats Genesis

Dude: Thats totally a Genesis
