The Village Voice: “Rush to Judgment, and the Rock Hall of Fame”
Rush fans have been very angry for a very long time. Not at the long-lived Canadian prog-rock trio–no, they worship them unequivocally. The “world’s biggest cult band” has a fanatical following heavily composed of dudes, and in the last decade, those dudes have been pissed, ranting about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s perceived slight of their beloved band. It’s taken more than 10 years, but Rush finally got what they didn’t really care about in the first place: an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, class of 2013. They join classmates Heart, Randy Newman, Public Enemy, Donna Summer, and Albert King.
