Rush rocks.

U2 rocks.

Rush are better musicians (by far), and their last album was better than U2's, by far.

U2 is more popular.

U2 has 2 albums in my top 10 of all time, Rush has 1.

I like Rush's shows better recently because:

They play for a long time (3hrs)
No opening band
Thrown in some real oldies never played live before
Peart is a Drum god
Better stage show
They are still at the top of their musical and creative game.

However, for all their setlist staticness, U2 actually mixes up their set more than Rush does, but still plays too many old chestnuts.

At their peaks, U2 is better live. Recently, Rush.

Anyone here think Edge could play the Working Man guitar solo?

Rush are brilliant individual musicians, U2's whole is greater than the sum of it's parts.

Even as a long time Rush fan i have to say "so what if he can't ?"

I dont care if he could or not, I love both bands. That just seemed like an amusing thought to me considering how different their guitar styles are.

It's kind of pointless to argue opinion and silly to get angry over what people think.

honestlyyyyyyyy, when I compare these two bands in my head, it's not even close, U2 as a band is just so much better in almost every single aspect....

For the record, I'm NOT a Rush fan-boy. U2 is my FAVORITE BAND.

I just think Rush is JUST AS GOOD.

The are the greatest 3 piece on EARTH. No one can argue that.

I guess U2's only better because they have a front man who does nothing and plays a guitar in concert that you can't even hear.
Thanks. You seem to be one of the very few knowledgeable and objective music fans on this forum that can admit that.

And isn't it absolutely hilarious that some people in this thread haven't even heard of Rush's music but are automatically taking U2's side?

Classic!

i can tell you right now that I was a teenager when 2112 came out and had their album back then so you would be wrong when it comes to this statement. I am sure you weren't even born so don't start sweeping all of the 'some people' under one rug.

If I wasn't born I wouldn't be here. And I'm not sweeping all of the posters in thread under one rug. Some people mean some people. Not you.
