Kind of amazing that celebrities used to eschew commericials (except for Japan). Totally different now.

and is rush even metal?  what song of theirs would you consider metal?

like triumph, rush is firmly in the hard rock category, with a healthy side of prog.  maybe i'm putting things into too narrow silos, but IMO hard rock isn't the same as metal...

Rush is totally prog, not metal. I wouldn't even call them prog-metal.

That said, they're TERRIBLE.

For the record, wiki has Rush listed as Heavy Metal  ...while I agree on a technical level, they are not Heavy Metal
, they are a huge part of the longevity and breadth of that genre more that most spandex wearing longhairs


Background information
Also known as   Hadrian  [TIL alt rush band name]
Origin   Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Genres Progressive rock, hard rock, heavy metal[7]
Years active   1968–2018

Footnote
7: Rock and Roll: Its History and Stylistic Development (2003), p. 326, Joe Stuessy, Scott David Lipscomb

So take this up with Scott David Lipscomb on the Heavy Metal designation

I hate to see you two this way but if life has taught me anything it’s to not interfere…

i love that he has a "Reduced Version (fewer graphics)" of the page.  load time time on the full version was creeping up into the double-digit milliseconds...

is the Integers Thread aware that the page boasts an integer-only "True Random Number Generator"??
