The Hoyle state in 12C was discovered over 50 years ago in 1957 and strongly influences the rate of the triple-alpha process in stars. Recently, significant experimental and theoretical effort has been invested to understand, in detail, its unorthodox structure. In particular, identification of excitations of the Hoyle state has been a key goal. This paper addresses the current progress with an emphasis on possible members of the Hoyle band and the structure implications.
