Rush
To their legions of fans, Rush could be the quintessential definition of Progressive Rock. Through periods of Blues infused Rock, futuristic concept albums, the use of the synthesizer in the 80’s and Alternative Rock, Rush has been able to successfully borrow from multiple styles yet still remain a hard driving Rock band. Any publication that ranks the individual talents of musicians will almost certainly have members of Rush (especially their drummer, Neil Peart) listed in it.

Inducted in 2013.

From Toronto, Canada

Yes should have in before Rush. Yes already had made 3 of their biggest albums before Rush's debut even came out, both Neil and Geddy have cited Bill Bruford and Chris Squire as heavy influences, and Yes was touring in huge fashion well before Rush achieved the same level of popularity. Hell, Rush kind of copied their "big stage show with props" style from Yes (and Pink Floyd. This is all a moot point now though. I wanted Rush in, too, and am a fan, but I think Yes should have been in first for having "done it" before Rush..

Looks like this post will have to be removed, eh?

Ken...... Rush has been our concensus for two years, but of course the site is about debating that fact. Who would you put ahead of Rush? Karnevil... ELP should have received HOF attention, but over Rush? Rush also really isn't a supergroup as its defintion was more designed for those who achieved success in other groups and came together.... like ELP. Rush was always together and really didn't do anything apart. With that said, we welcome you here and look forward to hearing more comments from you!

Rush may deserve to be in the Hall, but many other super groups should be a head of them. Especially the fore runner of Progressive Rock, Emerson, Lake & Palmer

As Rush may deservice to be in the Hall, they definately are not # 1. Two many other super groups should be classified above them.

Critics don't like progressive rock at all. Pink Floyd didn't even get in on its first year of eligibility, Genesis took 16 years (and it was probably largely due to Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel' s success as solo artists). Although there are some hard rock bands that generally have critical respect (Zeppelin, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Deep Purple (who is strangely not in yet), Queen, GNR) there are few metal bands (Sabbath and Metallica are really the only ones). Now Rush were (arguably) the pioneers of progressive metal. Imagine how much luck they'll have getting into the Hall.Oh, they will get into the Hall and their critical respect is gaining over time, while many of their peers like Yes and Jethro Tull are seemingly losing influence over time.The problem is that the whole genre is being snubbed, and King Crimson, Yes, Jethro Tull, Moody Blues, ELP, AND Rush should probably all be in. And that's flat-out ignoring the second-tier bands like ELO, Alan Parsons, Kansas, Styx (who probably don't have much of a case anyway...)Ye s will probably get in first because of their '80s pop period (they and Genesis crossed over to pop in a way most of these other bands did not).Crimson will probably get in because they have the most critical respect, they influenced other prog bands (including Rush), they spun off members of many, many, many successful groups (ELP, Bad Company, Foreigner, Asia), and their influence even extends to grunge (Cobain is a fan).Moody Blues will probably get in, more due to their British Invasion period than any of their prog works, since the Hall likes honoring British Invasion acts (Hollies, Dave Clark Five). Hopefully the Moody Blues and Zombies will be the last two, because I don't think any other British Invasion acts have a case.Jethro Tull has critical respect and longevity but they have been relatively forgotten by critics and fans and classic rock radio compared to most of these other bands. I think they'll have a harder time.ELP? Critics loathed them, so I don't see them ever getting in.Obviously , Crimson, the Moodies, Rush, and Yes ALL should have been in many years ago. Now the question is which band do they go for first? You can make cases for all of them, but they're obviously never going to nominate more than one prog act at a time, if they ever get to prog...

Yes, Rush belongs in the Hall, if only because ZZ Top is already in, and thus the standards have been cheapened
