That Metal Show Throwdown: Rush Fans versus The Kiss Army

Mon, Dec 1, 2008@2:43PM | comments

VH1 Classic's new metal-themed talk show hosted by Eddie Trunk - That Metal Show - premiered November 15th and now has 3 shows under its belt. Geddy and Alex were interviewed for the show back in October and they'll be appearing on the December 27th episode. In the latest episode which aired Saturday night, Jay Jay French and Dee Snider of Twisted Sister were guests. In the Throwdown segment, co-host Don Jamieson posed the question who has the most loyal fans, Rush or Kiss? Co-host Jim Florentine and Jay Jay French both voted for Rush, but everyone else voted for Kiss causing Rush to go down 3-2. Don Jamieson supports his Kiss vote by saying that there's no Rush condoms ... there's no Rush toothbrush, there's no Rush toilet paper... and Jay Jay French defends Rush by saying you know why that's the case? Because Rush has class ... Rush fans truly appreciate that band.... Damn straight! You can watch the entire exchange at the VH1 Classic website here - the Throwdown segments begins at about the 2-minute mark. Thanks to Neil_Rulz for the heads up.
