I think Rush should be classified as a supergroup. All the memmbers kickass at what they do and they are still going!!! Best Album: Moving Pictures- Best Song: Fly By night

Rush might be the most underrated band ever. All three of them are truly amazing, and Alex Lifeson is definitely one of the more underrated guitar players.

Personally, my favorite song is Limelight. Gotta love it.

Rush is great, but shouldn't this be in prog?

The reason Lifeston is underrated is due to the awkwardness of some of his solos, like "Freewill" and "Tom Sawyer" though personally, I think he's great.


One thing about Rush is that they're a band were every member's name is well known(like Led Zeppelin, THe Who, and The Beatles)

^^Limelight and Tom Sawyer aren't awkward at all compared to YYZ and La Villa Strangiato.
