Rush - completely overrated

Recommended Posts



Just like you don't agree when your wife says she looks fat, you should not say this... no matter how true it might me.  

I never understood the fascination with Rush.

It is highly suspicious, I agree.

They have good music, but I don't fascinate w/ any music group.

Yes, yes it is.  And not easy to say, being Canadian and all.  People here get all bent out of shape when you say that.

On a side note, I feel the same way about the Tragically Hip and Gord Downie being vastly overrated

I don't know who Gord Downie is.

I don't hate Rush, they are objectively good musicians.  I wish their songs were better.

A lot of Rush's stuff is really good music.  Technically they remind me a bit of Emerson Lake and Palmer.  It's not headbanger rock if that's what you want though.

What aboot Guess Who and The Barenaked Ladies?

Rush is just not on my radar. I’m sure I’ve heard them but I can’t think of any song by them.

Individually they were / are musicians at the top of their game.

They had a song writer that was truly ahead of his time and too smart for most of us to understand.

Together, they were Rush.

I don't do favorites, ever, but they are one of the bands I really admire.

Yes and yes.  But in my defense I have very pedestrian tastes in music

Tragically Hip had magical albums 2-4.  I thought everything else was lame. But Up To Here, Road Apples, and Fully Completely were pretty bad arse IMHO.
