I don't like Rush. And not because they're a bunch of pretentious, bigheaded, small-phallied ass-holes. Geddy Lee's vocals make me want to punch babies. And Geddy Lee.

I think Rush has a pretty bifurcated fanbase: there are people who absolutely love Rush and there are people who absolutely hate them. I am, obviously, a proponent of the latter. I am honestly surprised Neil Peart can drum at all, given how swollen his head is.

I'm neither, really. I think they're okay. Listenable, but not what I choose to listen to since I like many other bands more.

If Canadians hate me this much for saying 13% of the worlds worst music comes from there I hope there's no Patagonians lurking on the forum

I swear Urban is really a cantankerous father who has had 5 kids, 3 divorces and is really 62. Seriously this thread is the dog's. I only wish I thought of this before.

I can't stand Geddy's voice either but a lot of people swell over the Cure and his voice has got to be the worst in Rock history. Even Tiny Tim sounds better.

Rush starting really sucking in the mid 80's to present.

51 : White Men Who Dance While Playing Slap Bass

In your mind your playing in Funkadelic

In reality you look like your playing in Level 42.

Les Claypool is the exception.

I used to think that.

But then I realised that artists like Nickelback and Bryan Adams becoming as successful outside of Canada as they have really says more about the rest of the world than it does Canada.

I have a 6'7" friend that plays a mad slap bass and he is hilarious onstage. It's like his movement never really reaches his feet so he stands in own spot waving his torso and head like a mother****er. And he is hilarious in person too.

Here's just a taste of how crazy this guy is. I swear, it's not porn *coughLesPaul&JJcough*.
