Another snub from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for my favorite freedom loving Canadian rock band, Rush. The Beastie Boys, Guns n' Roses, and disco singer, Donna Summer are nominated this time around, but not Rush.

Ike and Tina Turner, The Rascals, Abba, Gene Pitney, and Madonna are already members which suggests that the Hall of Fame's standards are not too high. Only the Hall of Famers the Beatles, Stones and Aerosmith have had more consecutive gold or platinum albums, with Rush nipping at their heels, turning in a whopping 24 consecutive big selling albums. However, one might suspect that politics might be involved, as Neil Peart is an Objectivist.

Here's one of their signature songs, "Tom Sawyer".

A modern-day warrior
Mean mean stride,
Today's Tom Sawyer
Mean mean pride.

Though his mind is not for rent,
Don't put him down as arrogant.
His reserve, a quiet defense,
Riding out the day's events.
The river

And what you say about his company
Is what you say about society.
Catch the mist, catch the myth
Catch the mystery, catch the drift.
