A band who is extremely underrated however is dissed mainly because of geddy's early voice. however, they have sold the most consecutive platnium albums, survived the 80s and 90s, still play sold out concerts and tours today after 30 plus years, and are right behind Aerosmith and the Beatles in album sales. How are they bad?

Also, Neil Peart's lyrics are amazing and the way Geddy Lee conveys them with his singing is a great combo, and the use of the synths add a great atmosphere and mood to each song during the Synth Era.

I suggest if you wanted to get into rush, start with the Moving Pictures and Permanent Waves album and branch out from there. Power Windows is a pretty sexy album as well..

And they make you proud to be a canadian if you are from canada.. im not but im just saying..

The greatest rock band to ever grace the earth; Alex Lifeson, Geddy Lee, and Neil Peart.
I've never met anyone who doesn't like Rush, and I've never killed anyone. There's a possible correlation, so I'd watch out if you have anything bad to say about them.

One of the greatest progressive rocks bands of all time. The lyrics are superb, and the magnificent bass, drum, and guitar playing hold the music together, completed with Geddy Lee's unique vocal style.
Listening to Rush is a reminder of how great my taste in music is.
