Finally, a band actually worthy of getting into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is inducted. That's great, Congratulations Rush!

They finally get inducted, and they share the stage with rock legends Public Enemy.

Although I don't think Rock and Roll hall of fame to be the most credible thing in rock, it's great to see Rush being recognized for their amazing career..

As much as I dislike the Rock and Roll Hall of fame, congratulations to Rush and Heart. Those bands really deserve it. Now if we could just get Deep Purple, Kiss, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and Motley Crue in.

Hip Hop is rock now? Really? Grats to Rush and Heart... but really is a joke.

I thought the same thing. I think hip-hop has their own hall of fame, right?

And Deep Purple were snubbed yet again... I also expected Kraftwerk to be inducted.

But hey, at least Donna Summer got in.

Woohoo, Rush is in the hall of fame. Now the world has been saved, I guess.



Unenthusiasm concerning the hall of fame aside, Rush is amazing.
