  • By-Tor... and THE SNOW DAWG !!!!
  • further to the conversation Rush is the best band I have heard from Canada.
  • arcade fire is the second best canadian band ever
  • alex's solo is amazing!!!!!!!!!!!
  • It was a joy watching Lifeson belittle & mock the R&R HoF community with his schtick, but at the same time it was nice to hear Geddy & Neil express their appreciation to their core fans. Class Acts all around! Hail RUSH, the only god I pray to.
  • Oooooooo YOOOW!
  • Fuck the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, fuck Rolling Stone, fuck all who have deluded themselves to believe Arcade Fire is the best Canadian band ever, and fuck any indie/alternative hipster asshat who think they are too cool for Rush. Their countless platinum and gold records, hundreds of millions of fans, and most importantly their music... all speak for themselves. Few if any bands have touched and connected with their near-rabid fans so deeply and on so many levels. They have more musical talent and integrity than practically the entire rest of the industry measured together.
  • Most Awesome Band....Have loved them from Start!
  • "Rush rules!!! Leets start a campaign to get them into the Rock Hall of Fame..." Don't need to anymore :)
  • one of their best pieces
