12:38PM EST | comments (2) |

Rush UCR HOFOver the past several weeks Ultimate Classic Rock has been running a bracket-style poll to determine the next inductee into their Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame. Rush was one of the nominees this go-around and after narrowly defeating Judas Priest, Journey and Kansas over the past few weeks have now been officially inducted into the UCR Hall of Fame. The last round against Kansas was especially close but Rush ended up winning with 50.8% of the vote. Congratulations to Rush and everyone who voted. Consequence of Sound has also been running a bracket-style poll over the last few weeks in order to determine the Greatest Drummer of All Time. Neil Peart made it to the final round after defeating Mitch Mitchell, Keith Moon and Mike Portnoy, where he was pitted against the legendary John Bonham. Voting ended this past Friday at 5PM and Neil ended up defeating Bonzo with a whopping 87% of the vote. You can check out the complete results here.

So now with Rush winning so many recent polls, the question ultimately becomes, what does this really mean, overall?

Has Rush's fan base grown any larger? What factors of Rush's music and lyrics attract some individuals to Rush and repel other individuals? Are the aficionados of Rush's sound honing in on a specific frequency, which others simply are not picking up on? What makes Rush resonate with some and not with others?

CORRECTION:
Neil Peart, Greatest Drummer of All Time, Named by His Parents.
