After being overlooked for many years, Rush are now Rock and Roll Hall of Famers. The veteran Canadian outfit more or less wrote the definition for the phrase “power trio” and have one of the most dedicated and loyal fan bases in music. This Readers Poll asks you to name your favorite Rush song. No easy task for sure.

Rush formed in 1968 and by 1974 the band was releasing their self-titled debut album. Songs like ‘In the Mood’ and ‘Fly by Night’ earned Rush their first hints of success. 1977’s ‘2112’ is arguably the band’s first hit album, and it spawned their first major radio play with ‘Closer to the Heart.’ In the late ’70s and early ’80s, Rush truly established themselves with cuts like ‘The Spirit of Radio,’ ‘Limelight,’ ‘Tom Sawyer,’ ‘New World Man,’ ‘Subdivisions’ and ‘Distant Early Warning’ paving the way. Add in tracks like ‘The Big Money,’ ”Time Stand Still,’ ‘Force Ten’ and ‘Show Don’t Tell’ and the ’80s was definitely the most successful decade for Rush.

The ’90s and ’00s may not have been commercially large for the group, but the band did yield such favorites as ‘Dreamline,’ ‘Ghost of a Chance,’ ‘Stick It Out,’ ‘Cold Fire,’ ‘Test for Echo’ and more recently ‘Caravan’ and ‘Headlong Flight.’

That’s a lot of great music from Rush over the years. We know this is a difficult decision, especially for the band’s loyal and hardcore fans, but we’re asking you to check out the Readers Poll below and vote for your Favorite Rush Song:
