Top 10 Dream Theater Songs of All Time

Dream Theater is a progressive metal band from Long Island that has been ripping it up since the late 1980s.  They are the cream of the crop and the kings of their genre.  Here are 10 essential Dream Theater tracks that span their impressive catalog.  These are basically the gateway tracks into becoming a full blown prog-nerd.  Dream Theater is James LaBrie on vocals, John Petrucci on guitar, John Myung on bass, Jordan Rudess on keyboards, and new member Mike Mangini on drums (not easy to replace Mike Portnoy, however, Mangini is brilliant).
