Classically-trained musicians such as [[Music/EmersonLakeAndPalmer Keith Emerson]] and [[Music/{{Yes}} Rick Wakeman]] started to be drawn to rock, and they brought their repertoire with them. This is where Prog gets its modern image of classically-influenced songs with many extended solos, but Art Rock could refer to any attempt to elevate rock from its lowbrow image. This could include pop music with experimental elements (10cc and Music/RoxyMusic), and bands that used orchestral instruments (The Music/ElectricLightOrchestra). Some bands fused with other styles: Music/JethroTull were based on folk music, and the Canterbury bands leaned toward modern jazz. Prog was largely a British phenomenon, although Music/{{Kansas}} and Music/{{Rush}} were significant examples from America and Canada, respectively. The most commercially successful progressive rock band was Music/PinkFloyd, whose 1973 album ''Music/TheDarkSideOfTheMoon'' famously has spent more than over 30 years on the charts and has sold in the tens of millions of copies.

See also ProgressiveMetal for when prog gets ''[[DarkerAndEdgier heavy]]'', and TechnicalDeathMetal for when prog gets ''[[UpToEleven even heavier]]''. {{Krautrock}} is a somewhat more Teutonic variant, which is sometimes considered a subgenre of progressive rock and sometimes its own (albeit related) genre. Also compare BaroquePop, which has been described as being to pop music what prog is to rock.

** Many other bands similarly record albums that effectively consist of one track, or at least multiple side-length pieces, but divide it into separate movements for ease of CD navigation (or, during the heyday of vinyl, because it resulted in higher royalties). Examples include Music/{{Magma}} (around half their output), Music/{{Camel}} (''The Snow Goose''), Music/HatfieldAndTheNorth (basically both their official full-length albums, although "Mumps" stands out for being twenty minutes long on its own), Music/FrankZappa (''Music/AbsolutelyFree''), Music/DreamTheater (the second disc of ''Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence'' is a single song divided into eight tracks), and Music/PorcupineTree (the main suite of ''The Incident'' is around an hour long, although it has four additional songs included with it). Music/PinkFloyd could be considered an example as well, although theirs often feel more like several songs stitched together with FadingIntoTheNextSong. Other albums, such as ''Third'' by Music/SoftMachine and ''Tales from Topographic Oceans'' by Music/{{Yes}}, as well as much of Music/TangerineDream's output, consist of one song per LP side, but they are counted as separate songs.
