270 Rush Rush Rush is a Canadian progressive rock band that was formed in 1968. Even though the only founding member still in the band is Alex Lifeson (Guitar), the band is most well-known for their current members Neil Peart (Drums) and Geddy Lee (Bass, Vocals). ...read more.

Honestly, I believe Rush should be at the top 5 list, their progressive rock style was way ahead of their time in the early years, and still is. Rush is one of the most important bands in the history of rock, and by far the best progressive-rock band. Just search up "bands inspired by rush" and you'll see. Geddy Lee is outstanding, with his unique style of playing keyboard, bass AND singing at the same time. Alex Lifeson is one of the guitarists with the most advanced and unique type of riffs, and Neil Peart is probably one of the greatest drummers of all time. They switch between classic rock-style to hard, progressive and technical rock, so their music can be for any type of rock fan. Rush truly deserves a higher placing here.

An ecclectic band, I'll give you that, but possibly one of the most talented, most experimental, most revolutionary bands on the planet. Not to mention that three individuals, Lee, Lifeson & Peart are in the top ten lists of most of their respected instrumental skills - Lee for bass, Lifeson for guitar and Peart for drums.

Hurts that Charles Manson and Rebecca Black are ahead of rush...

How... Rush is easily EASILY top 100. For me they're top 5

I mean I can understand someone like Lady Gaga being at #125 but Paul McCartney?! That's when you know things are being rigged

Michael Jackson is the king of pop. Elvis is the king of rock and roll. And Paul McCartney is the king of great catchy melodies.

How can people forget about him?! Not to mention... He was in the Beatles!

Deserves way higher
