Progg was a socialistic music movement in Sweden, during the late sixties and the seventies. Progg is short for 'progressiv'.

Progg is good music. It's music you've never heard of, since you're probably not Swedish. It's not progressive rock or progressive music. As the previous noder noted, it was a leftist musical movment in Sweden in the late 60s and 70s.

The progg movement was incredibly diverse, it encompassed everything from folk music and ballads to rock and experimental. What differentiated it from other music was that it was leftist, alternative and non-commercial

Among famous bands are:
Blå Tåget
Hoola Bandoola Band
Mikael Wiehe and Björn Afzelius, members of Hoola Bandoola Band, have also done a lot of stuff on their own.
Peps blodsband (reggeaskånska!) is famous music from the same period, although it can't be called progg since Peps published his music on a commercial record company.

Less famous bands that this noder loves are:
Träd, gräs och stenar
Philemon Arthur and the Dung
Fläsket brinner
