    Since when was Brooklyn part of Long Island? Where is Pro-Pain?

    KingAd: You are correct, in every respect except geographically (to some degree), Brooklyn is not part of Long Island, and neither is Queens. I added these areas because since they are so close, and the scenes sometimes run into each other. Also, I simply wanted to add a few really amazing bands. Without adding Queens and Brooklyn, my list would have been one-third of what it is, or I would have had to add bands I didn't think truly belonged there (like the ones on the honorable mention).

    As for Pro-Pain, I have never been much of a fan, but I respect them; they have been prolific for almost 20 years. I do consider them an NYC (Manhattan) band as well (rather than LI, BK, or Queens), which is another reason I didn't include them. If we are talking NYC, I would have added TONS of bands, especially in regard to hardcore.

    Thanks for reading!

    Adding Brooklyn allowed you to include Biohazard and Type O (though I wouldn't associate either with the LI scene), which is cool, but Dream Theater is definitely in the 10 best bands of any kind to come out of Long Island. Musically talented, inventive, and more commercially successful than half the bands on your list.
