THE Prodigy have been named the most influential dance act ever in a new poll.
The group has long been lauded as pioneering within the genre, and 29 per cent of 2,000 voters in an online survey for the Global Gathering festival agree.
They fought off competition from Daft Punk, who came in second place, and Faithless who were placed third.
Other acts in the top 10 include Fatboy Slim, The Chemical Brothers and Carl Cox.
