I don't like the band RUSH

 
Last night I was watching the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
 
The last act to be inducted was RUSH.
 
I don't like RUSH.
 
Never have.
 
But I decided to watch them anyhow.
 
There are three guys in the band RUSH.
 
The drummer is awesome and he writes the lyrics (something about Tom Sawyer in one of the songs)
 
But just cuz the drummer has a bit of talent doesn't mean I like the band RUSH...cuz I don't.
 
I don't like RUSH.
 
(You already see where this is going, dontcha?)
 
Then I started paying attention to the lead guitar player.
 
The guy was doing stuff on a guitar that I really didnt know was possible.
 
I never really saw or listened to RUSH before...sometimes they'd pop up on the radio or somthing.
 
I never cared for them. Just cuz the lead guitar was amazing doesn't mean I like RUSH. I don't like RUSH. Never have.
 
Then I started to pay attention to the lead singer/bass player.
 
The dude kinda makes the bass guitar cool. He also was doing stuff that I never really saw a guitar player do.
 
And his voice? Distinctive.
 
Good? I have no clue. He sings rock and roll songs.
 
Does it matter if it's good?
 
I don't like RUSH in spite of the drummer being amazing (and writing the lyrics), the guitar player outplaying most other guitar players and a bass player that is the lead singer (he does have a cool name...Geddy Lee)
 
But I don't like RUSH.
 
I'll never buy any RUSH music or see them in concert.
 
Just because they are awesome doesn't mean I have like them.
 
I never liked RUSH, never will.
 
How the heck did they get in the Hall of Fame?

So, in a round-about way, you're admitting that all along you were wrong about Rush?

Geddy Lee has the most annoying voice in the history of voices...it probably would've been better if he hadn't been castrated as a boy.

I'm am not wrong about RUSH. I don't like them even though they are awesome.

I hope you've sought treatment for your obvious head wound...

Sounds like you've got a case of spam-brain.

So, despite their talent, Rush should not have made it into the R&R Hall of Fame because you don't like them?

That Geddy Lee smirks too much, damnit.

Idiots who complain about Geddy's voice obviously haven't heard beyond Moving Picture.

Take a listen to Dreamline and tell me if his voice sounds annoying.
