Rush Band Nominated For The 2013 Rock And Roll Hall Of FameThis is a sponsored post.
If you have ever spent time listening to prog-rock, you already know Rush. The Canadian band has long
been the favorite of those who enjoy lengthy, complicated tracks and innovative lyrics, but the band
been overlooked time and time again for nomination in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The 2013 ballot,
though, finally features this great band. A look at their accomplishments should show any non-believer
not only how amazing it is that the band has not yet entered the Hall, but how deserving they are of a
spot in the coveted company of so many other greats.
Even if you are not a fan of Rush, you have probably heard the band’s music. Tom Sawyer, for example,
has been part of numerous movie and television soundtracks, including Small Soldiers, Adam Sandler’s
The Waterboy and was integral part of a late episode of the TV series Chuck. Another of the band’s
hits, The Trees, was featured in an episode of the Fox series King of the Hill. In fact, the band is so
popular that a number of their songs are even featured in the various Rock Band and Guitar Hero games.
Few bands have ever captured the public imagination so readily without being nominated, but that is
something that has finally be rectified.
In the end, it is incredibly impressive that this Canadian act is finally getting its due. Not only will the
members of Rush finally be enshrined alongside their peers, but the world will have another chance to
see just how great they are. Whether you are a fan of blistering drum solos or thought-provoking music,
Rush’s place on the ballot should come as a welcome surprise.
