* {{Phish}} ([[GenreBusting Crossover Prog/Jazz/Blues/Funk/Psychedelic/etc.]]) - they were at their proggiest in the late 80s and early 90s, but they still utilize unconventional time-signatures, glissandi and other techniques typically associated with prog. They also are largely known for their {{Epic Rocking}} and improvisation, with many recorded jams stretching over the 30 minute mark.

** In truth, the idea of a rivalry between punk and prog ''musicians'' is somewhat a case of historical revisionism. The ''audiences'' of the two genres didn't overlap much at the time, but the musicians themselves weren't as invested in the idea as their fanbases and rock critics were. The idea that the early waves of punk featured sloppy musicianship is mostly due to the example of Music/SidVicious; the other Music/SexPistols were quite competent musicians and simply played ThreeChordsAndTheTruth material because that's what they wanted to play at the time. But, as mentioned, Music/JohnLydon was a big fan of prog bands like Music/{{Magma}}, Music/{{Can}}, and Music/VanDerGraafGenerator, and, despite his "I Hate Music/PinkFloyd" shirt, didn't even hate them (he was just using it to {{troll}} people). The same goes for a lot of other punk bands - Music/TheClash didn't learn to play their instruments with their first album, as is often claimed, and albums like ''Music/LondonCalling'' and ''Music/{{Sandanista}}'' demonstrated what truly sophisticated musicians they were. Some punk bands' music, such as Music/DeadKennedys', almost bordered on prog themselves (listen to "MTV - Get Off the Air" or "Stars and Stripes of Corruption", both of which feature a very prog-like tripartite structure), and it goes without saying that the Kennedys were very skilled musicians. (The prog influence is even more obvious on some of Music/JelloBiafra's solo work, in which he really delves into EpicRocking.) Critics to a certain extent seem to have taken Music/TheRamones' ThreeChordsAndTheTruth style and run with it a bit more than was merited. And it's probably worth mentioning that the genres even have a lot of their roots in common - Music/TheDoors, Music/TheWho, and the Music/VelvetUnderground in particular exerted unmistakable influence on both genres.

* RecurringRiff: Many concept albums reuse melodies at some points to represent a character, an idea, or a story element. Even some albums that aren't concept albums will use melodies multiple times, which often falls under {{Bookends}}.
