I couldn't name a single track by Rush. They strike me as prog rock bores. By contrast, tracks such as WOWY, One, Bad, Love is Blindness and many more are all time classics.

You know, Big Willy, you have accomplished quite a amazing feat since joining this forum, you have managed to make those of us who have become quite cynical about U2 defend them to the hilt.

"Prog rock bores", yeah, that pretty much sums up my feelings about Rush

I may be missing out but i can honestly say i have never knowingly listened to a Rush track and could not name a song or album of theirs.

I like Rush okay. But, I must admit that when they come on the radio in my car, I usually try to find something I like more on another station before going back to Rush.

Red Barchetta is a certified banger.  Tom Sawyer is good.  Fly by Night is catchy, but his voice kinda ruins it.  That's really all I know.

Over here, they are unavoidable. Put on a classic rock station, and with the quotas on Canadian content, you’re sure to hear some Rush everyday. I never was a fan, always found their music unimaginative and repetitive.

I really like one of their lyric..."if you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice". But, I don't even know what song that is from!

Riffy, there is only « one » Rush song. I have no clue of its title or lyrics. But it’s always  « that » one I hear on the radio.  ;)

That's probably the song, then, right? ha!

I couldn't name a single songs by Rush either.  Not to say they aren't any good.

Rush are the band U2 could have been. As a starting point I recommend ‘The Best of Rush’
