OK, this is an easy one. I actually don't agree with I Live Under a Bridge being in the top 32, but I had no choice, as it received a lot of love in the nomination thread, more so than many threads here. It's not that I don't find it funny, it's hilarious, it's just that I know it's going to get murdered because a lot of people won't get it. If you DON'T get it, Ian makes it pretty obvious who the thread is making fun of halfway down page 6.

I placed Rush vs. U2 way too low, in hindsight.

"well U2 isn't gay and Clay Aiken is so..."

Some real gems in that thread

Some serious hangover happening here after the last poll, which smashed the voting record. That surprises me, since Rush vs. U2 is such a classic.

And still pertinent, for whatever reason.

Yeah, uhm the Rush thread is all. That argument still arises now and then, and it still reminds me of the hillariousness. If that is even a word. I don't care.

That other thread? Yeah. Uhm. May have been funny at the time, but it's not particularly noteworthy.

The Rush threads, I know people, it's all part of some great memories here.

It's worthwhile to note that Travis' stance on Rush has shifted somewhat from abject hatred in 2008 to, at minimum, current acceptance of their musicianship and place in the prog rock canon.

Yet another sign that he just might turn out ok, after all.

Let's not turn this thread about a Rush thread into an actual thread about Rush.

Yeah, I've found some Rush to enjoy. 2112 is my favorite of the batch.

...Gonna eat my brains now, Bonnie?

I'm still blissfully ignorant. Only songs I've heard are 2112 because they're mandatory to finish on Guitar Hero.

I'm not sure I've heard any. I keep thinking of that song called Rush by Big Audio Dynamite.

I don't think I've ever heard Rush on Australian or Kiwi radio.

The only reason I've heard their music is because I sought it out during my prog phase.

I don't think I'll ever listen to them because of this forum.
