Blasphemy! Rush kicks ass. I have seen them live and it was a great show. Neil Peart is one of the best drummers around.
I will give you that their lyrics are very strange but that is about my only gripe. Subdivisions, Limelight, Spirit of the Radio, Freewill, and Working Man are all great songs. You are obviously missing something since they have been around and popular for 30 years.
Bonus points for their tie ins with Freaks and Geeks and I Love You Man
