As mentioned below, they're pointedly avoiding the considerable jazz influence in a lot of prog there, not to mention all the non-white acts over the years. The Mars Volta weren't exactly a gang of pasty Eton boys.
I always find it funny when these kind of articles affect this iconoclastic swagger as if they're still punching up at the elitist rock establishment by slagging off prog and siding with the Ramones or whatever. As if there's a safer, less controversial position a rock critic from the last four decades could take.
