They've been making music for a very long time- with the same three men. They have around 20 albums and the lyrics to their music are so deep and have actual meaning. The way they play their instruments-especially how Neil plays the drums- is breathtaking. They definitely need to be in the Hall Of Fame.
Rush is arguably the greatest band to come out of North America. Their sound has remained unique, and no band throughout history can match their sound. It is fair to call them the best trio in history. The sounds they were able to make are incredible. Geddy Lee has the most unique voice of any rock band in all of history. Neil Peart is the greatest drummer of all time. They continue to release albums that sound unique and creative. Their classics like "Tom Sawyer" and "2112" display their incredible identity. The Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame is making a huge mistake by not inducting this band.
Rush has been around forever. And the fact that they're still around is a big statement. How many other bands from the 60s-70s are still around AND making ever more awesome music. These guys were way more talented than anything else in their era and even now. Put them in the hall of fame already.
The fact that they're not is quite surprising. Rush is incredible. They're better than a great deal of the people already inducted. Rush is so influential, they're so talented that this shouldn't even be a question. Rush deserves to be inducted perhaps more than most of the other people to be nominated.. Rush is awesome!
Let's put aside the fact that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a joke for a second. I'm not even a big Rush fan but their influence and musicianship is very big. They've sold a ton of albums and are cited constantly as an influence. Geddy Lee and Neil Peart are masters of their instruments. Rush is more accomplished than countless acts that have already been inducted. There is nothing more to say about their lack of a place in the Hall other than it is a gross oversight.
I believe that Rush should be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They are legends and have had a lot of influence on the genre. They also have a lot of classic songs. In their prime Rush was huge. They still have a loyal following and I think they should get in.
Because the band Rush's sales statistics place them third in the world (only behind The Beatles and The Rolling Stones) I believe they should be welcomed into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Even though their name is not as well known as other bands (such as The Beatles, obviously) their sales record speaks for itself. If people did not enjoy their music, they would not buy it.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame should only be for the biggest of the big. Inductees should be bands or people that have significantly influenced the world or music or people's perceptions. Rush hasn't done any of those things. In fact, I bet many people don't know who Rush is and would not be able to recognize any of their songs.
