Meh, I got pulled in this one too, but the guys just annoyed me. Gotta love how neither of them is actually replying or quoting any of my posts.

U2 may have had a giant lemon, but Rush had real chicken cooking on stage.

Rush wins hands down, most innovative band ever:

YouTube - RUSH IN WINNIPEG. MAY 24th, 2008 - Spirit of radio crowdclap


Like I said before, Rush as far as technical musicians wins hands down, but there's much more to music than musicianship. But unfortunately the rest is all subjective. So all of this "it's a fact" crap is just BS.

When I was younger I was a fan, now I can barely stand to hear Geddy's voice. The one thing I never quite understood was how many try and label Rush as this incredibly "innovative" band, they weren't. Yes they tried a lot of different things, but most of it was in step with their contemporaries at the time(except the chicken thing, but that was just stupid).

did i mention that geddy lee can't sing? i don't know what that noise is, but that's not singing.

and their songs are hysterical. what's one of their first singles called again... in the mood? heavens to betsy, guys.
if you want to scar children, print out the lyrics and a picture of geddy along with the song in the background. they'll be able to laugh off 'hostel' straight after.

For a little while

Well, youre makin me crazy
The way you roll them eyes
Wont you come and sit with me
Ill tell you all my lies

Hey baby, its a quarter to eight

Hey baby, the hour is late
I feel Ive got to move

Well, hey now, baby
Dont you talk so fast
Im just tryn to make these good times,
Im tryn to make it last

Evrythings getting hazy
Now honey, whered you go?
I just want to find out, baby
Whered you learn what you know?

Hey baby, its a quarter to eight
I feel Im in the mood
Hey baby, the hour is late
I feel Ive got to move

Well, hey now, baby
Said, I like your style
You really got me, baby
Way down deep inside

Oo, you drive me crazy
Baby, youre the one
I just want to rock-and-roll you woman
Until the night is gone

Hey baby, its a quarter to eight
I feel Im in the mood
Hey baby, the hour is late
I feel Ive got to move

------------

HONEST.LAAAAY. this is obscene.

Difference is...u2 have done it from (for the most part) the VERY top of the sucsess tree. Rush have never been subjected to the same fame or pressure that U2 have.

Lets face facts, save for about a handfull of people....no one on this site gives a shit about Rush!

I was just paddling along in my canoe, when I noticed this thread on my iPhone. To answer the question, yes, it IS a beaver--a fine Canadian beaver, thank-you very much, and his name is Herman. He's been living there since '72.

Sure, those lyrics Zoomerang posted above seem frightfully close to the early seeds of Nickelback, but they've evolved enough to produce some okay tunes. Dreamline comes to mind. I've never seen them live, so I can't compare them to U2. Word on the street, however, is that they've got enough firepower to blow the sweater-vests off the stuffiest of prime ministers...high praise.

I have nothing to add to this but I figured I better post in here before the inevitable locking of the thread

Me too! I figured I might as well be a part of it.

Plus, it's a Top 10 contender for 2008.

I haven't been keeping track, per se, but I do have a rough idea of what the contenders are.

Awards show sounds nice! Live from Atlanta, Germany it's the 2008 Interferers Awards!
