John AxfordNew Cleveland Indians closing pitcher John Axford has asked fans to help him determine what intro song he should use before entering games this season via an online poll. One of the 12 choices given in the poll is Rush's Working Man. It's currently in second place to Sabotage by The Beastie Boys with 16%, so go vote for Rush (thanks Eric at Power Windows)! And while you're at it, keep voting for Rush's Limelight in the March Riff Madness contest; they are still losing to the Kinks in a close race with voting ending today.

I hope RUSH wins this gig, but to be quite honest the Sabotage song is a perfect compliment given the scenario.

Looks like Sabotage has the lead by a point. Very close indeed. Thanks Jupe for the shoutout to the people of Oso which is about an hour north of Seattle. Very scary and nasty stuff going on up there. Over 100 people missing so far.

Hope Axford doesn't mind being tarred as a Walmartian because he WILL be marching on to the sound of Workin' Man. Any poll with a Rush option in it is always going to put our boys in front, surely everyone knows this by now when they make them? You can't argue with a 100,000+ strong army of zealots, not now, not ever.

The unconditional support of such a huge and dedicated fanbase is as astonishing as the band itself... and yet it amazes me how the majority of people are still so unaware, and even dismissive of Rush.
