[Settle the Beef: Does Rush Deserve the Hall of Fame?]

Inspired by Stephen Colbert's question on the subject from Rush's recent appearance on his show, Wired.com's Scott Thill decided to ask his readers whether they thought that Rush should be inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It's a subject that has frustrated many of us Rush fans ever since the band became eligible for induction back in 1999. Some of us feel very strongly about it, while many other Rush fans just don't care and say to hell with the Rock Hall!. Either way, Thill has invited us all to chime in with our opinions:

... I decided to ask my contact at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland if the institution would field some questions on the matter. They agreed, so here I am, Rush fans and haters, asking for your help.

If you could ask the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame about a Rush candidacy, what would you ask? Tell us below and we'll sift through the queries and lob the best three at Cleveland and see what comes up.

And just because you don't like the band doesn't mean you're not invited. We're taking questions from either side of the Rush divide. A question like "Will you please never induct the band?" can win out over "When will you induct the band?" given enough volume and momentum. ...

I'm sure many of you have an opinion one way or the other on the subject, so go let Wired.com and the Rock Hall know how you feel at this link.
