That's rich, coming from you.

And that's just a small sample. "YYZ," "Camera Eye", "Xanadu"; there's a lot more to their library than what you hear on the classic rock station, believe it or not.

Believe it or not, I happen to own a few Rush CDs. I just don't find them to that amazing. Yeah, sure, they're good. But they're not my band of choice.

They're not terrible. As I said, they're good. The thing is, I can find a band boring and still say, "Yeah, they've got a bit of talent".

In light of this, why are you getting butthurt over the fact that I said I find Rush boring?

What makes you believe I'm butthurt? I'm just insulting your child-like opinion.

I just don't understand how one who claims to be a huge metal fan like yourself can't stand to listen to Rush considering the amount of metal musicians who've cited them as an influence, especially Progressive metal artists which you seem to enjoy.


Based on my experience, the only individuals who've told me they can't stand Rush are the same ones who wear the A7X and Slipknot T-shirts and are obsessed with generic Metalcore and shitty semi-mainstream bands like Godsmack and Five Finger Death Punch. The typical 14-year-old's taste.

This is literally one of the worst things that I have ever read on this site.

It's like, you can't just make stuff up and think that it's true.

1) Calling my opinion "child-like". Yeah, nice touch that.
2) What's there to understand? I find Rush boring. Case closed.
3) Your experience is bad, and you should feel bad. Citing personal experience and calling me a 14 year old is really not a good way to win someone over to your opinion.

I don't like any of those bands. I also don't like Rush. Or bananas.

I really fucking dislike Rush and bananas.

So, what else do you listen to aside from hard rock and metal? That's why I said your opinion is childlike. I assume when you say "boring", you mean not "heavy" enough? If so, that's hands down the most immature way to put down a band, for not surpassing your "heavy" standards.

Can't think of any other reason, considering you have Mastodon,\ and Dream Theater on your list of fav. bands. There's not a whole lot different about them in complexity or style compared to the Rush songs I listed (I'm not talking mid-80's/modern rush, their classic stuff), aside from the fact that they are more heavy and driving than anything Rush has written.



...speaking of which, I need to update my list of bands. Seriously, too much metal and nothing else. Hell, I look like the 14 year old with a list including Metallica.

Okay.

Head down to Guitar Center and park yourself in the Line 6 section. Ask what they all think of Rush or any other genre of music aside from shitty metal.

Don't worry, I'm getting hit with snow and ice right now and my power is likely to go out soon. Hang in there.

I bet you're secretly a pretentious 14-y/o who exclusively listens to metal and hardrock instead of the pretentious shit you put on your profile

EDIT: +1 for the Gandalf though.
