    The devil’s music.

    Quoted from gouveia:

    The devil’s music.

    If it killed a half hour when we were supposed to be in school, it was OK with us.

    I remember one midday party in my buddy's backyard while his parents were at work blasting 2112.

    Ah.... the 70s. Best decade ever.

    #53 79 days ago

    Ah...the late 70’s-early 80’s. Best decade ever.

    Quoted from pinballjah:

    You can add Rush music to most games with a Pinsound card. Not a Rush specific pinball, but at least you can enjoy their music while you play.

    This is exactly what I did with my Metallica Premium. It plays all Rush songs, '75-80 of course

    If you could go back and get rid of that actor and his wife that took over in 1980 and messed with the whole scene, I might be inclined to agree with you.

    Musically, o-din. Musically.

    #62 79 days ago

    Musically?

    You are talking to a guy that heard Ballroom Blitz on the radio when he was 12 years old. I can't just throw that away.

    #63 79 days ago

    Hahahaha. I get it. I get it!

    #64 79 days ago

    Yes I’d like a Rush pin!

    #65 79 days ago

    The countdown begins for the pin of my all time favorite band. Enjoy

    #66 79 days ago

    Me personally...I like songs from all of their albums. I think something akin to a Rush Chronicles with songs from all of their years and use their artwork and videos from them also.

    I would buy it no matter which direction they would chose to go with.

    It sucks that they may never play again live.

    #67 79 days ago

    They won’t play again. They’re done.

    Sadly yep

    #70 79 days ago

    Shocked it wasn’t done after AC/DC & Metallica. Rush fans are prime pinball buying demo - 45-55 year old white nerds with money. They could sell 500 LEs to celebrities and musicians alone.

    I’d be very excited for a Rush pin. Spirit of Radio for the shooter groove & launch!

    Quoted from Rarehero:

    Well hell, I remember when it was 14 and 15 year old stoners going nowhere that listened to them.

    #72 79 days ago

    My dream music pinball machine. I have been a Rush fan from the beginning!!!!!

    #73 79 days ago

    There's one SuperLE sold right there.^^^^

    Make that 2. Dream theme for me as well.

    #75 79 days ago
    Quoted from TomGWI:

    It was a dream theme for me when the only band pin was Bally Kiss. Total lamesville on that one.

    #76 79 days ago

    Yeah, I have to admit. I would buy an SLE if they made one!

    #77 79 days ago

    Star Wars was a dream theme and the Stern one doesn’t do much for me.

    There’s an awful lot of us, o-din.

    Looks like they went someplace........

    #80 79 days ago
    Quoted from Extraballz:

    Looks like they went someplace........

    Sure. They went commercial and in the 80s all the kids living off daddy's money discovered them.

    Some it was much later after college when they decided they needed a rebellious streak to go along with those taped glasses and that diploma.

    #81 79 days ago
    Quoted from TomGWI:

    Yeah I wouldn’t want Stern to make my grail music pin. Looking for higher quality. Sorry Stern fans.

    First off I was talking about the young stoners. Second when exactly did RUSH go commercial. I’m 47 and have been listening to them from early on. You sure you have a clue on this subject?

    At 57 I more than have a clue

    Tom Sawyer. Game over.

    They went from being played on albums and underground stations only to every hour on the hour on every corporate rock station.

    That's when it was over for me and I went forth to find the next underground sensations. Me and corporate rock don't get along.

    And some of those young stoners from the mid 70s are doing just fine, thank you very much.

    The rest are either dead, married, or in jail.

    Other than Tom Sawyer ( one song) they rarely got any play on any station. RUSH is corporate rock. Now I know you are full of it. You still don’t get my young stoners comment. Someone said the fans were 45-55 yr old white nerds with money. Those 14-15 yr old stoners going nowhere you spoke of would now be 45-55. If they grew up to have extra money maybe they went somewhere in life? Probably a good thing you left RUSH behind early on. They tend to go over a lot of people’s heads.

    They were playing most of Moving Pictures on corporate rock stations when it came out. I couldn't turn it off because I was still hanging out with corporate rockers at the time and it was their radio. About a year after Led Zeppelin came out with In Thru The Out Door. More garbage.

    And those 14-15 year old stoners in 1975 to 1978 are all well out of their 40s now, but much younger in mind and spirit today than many that are still in their 40s from what I can see on this website. Use a calendar. Do the math!

    #87 79 days ago

    What those 14 to 15 year old stoners are doing now is beating their heads against the wall trying to explain how things really happened to many of whom were in diapers or not even born at the time.

    But it's become a hobby of mine, I guess.

    So someone who was 14 in 1975 is what 57 now. The example was 45-55. Off by two years? Really? Math was close enough. After Moving Pictures and TS they rarely were popular or played on mainstream radio. Sounds like you listened to them for 2-3 summers at keg parties and now your an expert on their career. Good grief. Don’t think I’ve ever heard someone call RUSH corporate rock. Lol. That’s why they just got into the Rock and Roll Hall like yesterday. Cause they were always mainstream. Wow. It’s clear you don’t know much about RUSH other than a very small sample from early on.

    Close but no, you still aren't getting it. There is a generation gap I didn't know existed before I joined this site. Those that were teens in the mid to late 70s and those that were born at that time that seem to want what we already went thru.

    At 45 you weren't even alive when Rush formed and were two years old when they released 2112.

    If your parents were cool I guess they could have taken you to the Farewell to Kings show when you were three.

    #90 79 days ago

    You guys are ridiculous.

    There is not a huge generation gap between us. You are only 10 years older than me. You just talked about hearing ballroom blitz at 12. I heard Moving Pictures on the radio at 10. Listened to them ever since unlike you. They were not mainstream or very popular other than the fans who always stuck by them. So I had to catch up on a few albums before Moving Pictures. That doesn’t remove me from that timeframe you lived in. You might have something to teach some of the younger guys here about those times but not me champ. Early 80s still felt like the late 70s.

    #93 79 days ago

    I will keep typing if you like. I can tell you are super curious, so I'll try not to disappoint.

    Huge generation gap of ten years says I no longer dream of pinball machines themed after shit from my teens or prior. Life was full back then, I don't need to relive it. My memory banks are super solid in case you haven't noticed.

    I never said I didn't listen to Rush after that, so you don't really need to put those words in my mouth. I heard it all throughout the 80s. Roll the Bones wasn't really my cup of tea either.

    Glad you were able to latch on after their best was already laid out.

    Sorry but I don’t call guys only 10 years older than me sir. But thanks for enlightening me on my own youth. It must have been all cloudy. Yet yours is crystal clear. Again thanks for the help. And Signals is a pretty great album. Sorry RUSH went corporate on you a year earlier. You could have really liked Signals.

    You stated that perfectly, "They tend to go over a lot of people's heads". Plus to even consider Rush a corporate band is just ridiculous.

    The technically challenging music that Rush produced is absolutely not for everyone. The intricate music patterns are not for the main stream, common time, let's all dance crowd. As most of what is popular is the routine, straight ahead 4/4, same old blah-blah. Rush will simply make your head spin if you don't get it.

    Rush exhibited a genuine craftsmanship to their musicianship & especially their devoted fans. Rush never-ever sold out to commercialism & always held true to their art!

    Anyhow, I would definitely be in for a premium/gold edition. Stern, I'll send you my wallet right now!

    #96 79 days ago
    Quoted from Ockeyhead:

    Plus to even consider Rush a corporate band is just ridiculous.

    They should probably pull all their records from the corporate stations that played them to death for the last 40 years which made them rich, then maybe they wouldn't be mentioned along with other corporate rockers. Maybe different elsewhere, but not in LA. I'm sure Rush would be happy to give all that money back.

    I don't care to be called sir, but respect for my opinion instead of insults would be nice. But I've learned not to expect that from most GenXrs here. I've learned for the most part they don't want to understand an alternate point of view but would rather just try to discredit it.

    We were born at a different time and were obviously exposed to different things with maybe a slight bit of overlap. And obviously went in different directions. I'm not hating on you for the way you see things, I just see them differently.

    #97 79 days ago

    Oh, though I believe he means well (it depends) o-din has a reputation for stirring things up. The best way to handle him ~ Do not give him the attention that he craves. Just listen to some Rush, then you'll forget about this petty pissing contest that you're involved in.

    Are you a GenXr too? You don't really need to answer that.

    #99 79 days ago

    hey boys, take your schoolyard squabble somewhere else and let the people who would like to see this theme become a pinball machine continue to dream

    ockeyhead +2 pts for heading the nail on the head

    Definitely need the robes for the LE backglass.
