Last night I was trying to think of the most divisive band that I was aware of. Now there are many that people just love or hate, but I rarely think of one that people seem split down the middle about.
Then it came to me. The Canadian trio known as Rush seems to spark emotions of praise and disgust by equal amounts of music fans. While their musicianship cannot be denied, especially the percussion, the vocals of their lead seems to be grating to many. Plus the lyrics can leave a lot to be desired.
All that said I find myself lacking passion for this band for the most part, but when I hear songs like the one below I want to kill myself:
