Over time, Rush really grew on me. If nothing else they had a unique sound.

Caps key broken Tor?
It's funny, in my prog-rock and then punk days, we loved Ayn Rand as a figure of anti-authoritarianism. Howard Roak was my hero.

Ayn Rand was well known and read long before Rush was even out of elementary school.

I read Anthem, Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged before I ever heard of Rush.

I only heard there was an inspirational connection within the past 10 years.

BTW, before someone starts the BS, some people read Rand because it is good literature....and it is FICTION!

Yeah, the same fools who think Rush is good music. You deserve each other.

Rush's music is ok.

It's not Dave Mathews bad or anything.

Self-centered, repetitive noodling and horrible (I mean really horrible) vocals with no melodic sense. Thanks Canada!

Ahhh Alyssa Rosenbaum, the mother of modern day fascism.

Ayn Rand is to blame for Ayn Rand's popularity.

Yea sure. I'll bet your novel or your music is better than each of them.

figures legallytonedeaf doesn't like Rush... They're in the Rock and Roll hall of fame and had arguably the GOAT of drummers.

"They're in the Rock and Roll hall of fame"

Like most progressive bands, Rush had occasional periods of ------------ musicianship and pseudo-intellectual pretension, however, by-and-large they were quite brilliant. My favorite song of theirs is Subdivisions The drums keyboards and guitar are incredible and the lyrics are potent and universal- conform or be cast out.

But Ayn Rand can suck it, IMNSHO.

For the Rand tie in, I assume someone stumbled across The

Nobody knows more than me. Especially when it comes to the topic of who I think is great and who sucks. Rush sucked.

Lead paint and gasoline fumes is to blame for Ayn Rands popularity.
