Bad Kitty Music #5: Rush
RUSH- 2112 (1976)
When I was about 13 years old, I first heard this record. Everything is terrible when one is 13 years old, and the dystopian worldview that permeated this album sounded a hell of a lot like my bus ride to middle school. I loved the record, immediately and forever. If pressed, I can probably still play all seven (sorry, VII) sections of the title cut on guitar, and would gleefully squawk the falsetto of Geddy Lee’s vocals. But for safety and insurance purposes, that is no longer a good idea. If you are sick and tired of getting hassled by the man, and/or are mad as hell and not going to take it anymore, you need this LP in your life.
