I was going to say I can't stand Styx, but then I remembered the Mr. Roboto video:
  • First video I ever saw with robots in it.
  • When he climbs into the robot casing, it reminded me a lot of Ian climbing inside the Dalek casing. (Yeah, yeah, Daleks aren't robots, but I was 12.)
  • The song and video somewhat predicted the PMRC.
  • Vocoders are almost always cool.
Still, I'd rather listen to Kraftwerk, Robotiko Rejekto, S.P.O.C.K, or even Tatu sing about robots than Dennis DeYoung. And I can't think of anything else by Styx that doesn't horribly annoy me.

It's not that I hate all prog/pop crossover. I just hate all prog/pop crossover that isn't produced by Trevor Horn.
