Rush fans can relax. The band is now officially in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The Canadian rockers were welcomed into the musical fraternity at Thursdays 28th annual induction ceremony by the Foo Fighters Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins. At the beginning of the Nokia Theatre event, the audience was already administering a standing ovation to the group.
Weve been saying for a long time that this wasnt a big deal, drummer-lyricist Neil Peart told the crowd, most of whom came out to specifically support the band. It turns out, it kind of is.

It’s honestly about time. They were more deserving to be there over other bands.
Rush - tom sawyer
Rush Limbaugh was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Good for him.
No wonder he took off work today.
About d-mn time.
Long overdue. Now if we can just get Jann Weener, er Wenner to do something about getting Deep Purple and Rainbow inducted.
Oh yeah, and Cheap Trick, too. Public Ememy and Run-DMC get in, but not Cheap Trick? Blah!
Neil Peart, maybe.
How fitting in Cleveland’s Rock museum, after WMMS there broke them with their US airplay
I prefer the first half-dozen albums over the new stuff myself, but truly deserving and LONG overdue
I've always favoured their live albums.Brilliant musicianship with a harder,bigger sound.
Reminds me of a comment to the editor of Rolling Stones magazine when they finally did an article on Rush a few(?) years ago; something like:
“Dear Rolling Stones. Thanks for the article on Rush. And F*&% You.”
My favorite rush fan site. Lots of good coverage of the Hall of Fame thing, including the other inductees.
Bubbles and I are celebrating!
Didn’t Peart take a whipping on FR recently for something stupid he said about stuff we like?
RRHOF is a joke. Everyone gets in. Madonna is in for God’s sake. She’s rock?
Good one RUSH they deserve it. I know Deep Purple were nominated this year but I assume - because they were not mentioned in the press release, that they were not inducted. What a joke - Flava Flave gets inducted and Deep Purple don’t!
This is awesome! “Spirit of Radio” and “Closer to the Heart” are two iconic songs that placed these Canadian lads in the upper echelon of true rockers.
“Now if we can just get Jann Weener, er Wenner to do something about getting Deep Purple and Rainbow inducted.”
I’m with you!
