    The Police

    They probably couldn't stand each other, but what a band!

    KingsX

    Shame they didn't get the popularity they deserved!

    Trio

    Well, probably only for german kids growing up in the very early 80s.

    Popular!? Right. For decades when someone heard me listening to Rush, or i brought up the name, it was always a negative reaction. They were the band everyone loved to hate. Their popularity only developed, such as it is, in the last fifteen years or so. Prior to that they were about as popular as Yes or King Crimson.

    Doesn't seem right to start a thread this specific, then passively clip the wings in advance of someone who mentions them. Sort of poisoning the well, it seems.

    I feel the way about ZZ Top that you do Rush, so it is subjective.
