Rush, the greatest band to ever come out of Canada!

Postby KidEgo » Tue Nov 09, 2010 2:15 am

Once you listen to Rush for the first time, you're addicted. They are like Canada's version of The Beatles. They still get heavy airplay on rock radio stations, and this includes their newer and older material. Signals is one of the best albums in the history of progressive rock (<3 Subdivisions, The Analog Kid, New World Man and Countdown!). Also can't forget about their epic 2112. Three talented men! Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart!
All my haters:I'm awesome, and you're just jealous and biased elitists. Fuck you very much.
And I still say CASSHERN SINS SUCKS ASS!!!!

It's true though,

Every Canadian rock band that ever gets popular is inevitably compared to Rush.

I've never heard anything from Vapor Trails or other recent albums on any of the prominent rock stations here. The only reason I have the aforementioned disc is because I saw it at Wal-Mart. For that matter, most stations around here only stick to "Limelight" and "Tom Sawyer", and very occasionally "The Temples of Syrinx".


I'd go for Skinny Puppy, though.

I really love Rush too and had the chance to see them live this summer during the Time Machine Tour ! My parents used to be big fans from the beginning so they offered me to come with them, how could I say no ? :)
(they're amazing live, you would never ever guess that most of them are in their late fifties)

Gorguts is from Canada, so no, Rush is not the greatest band to ever come out of Canada.
