Any "worst Rush Song" poll without Anagram and Second Nature might as well be a "Best of" poll. My "worst" poll would be as follows:

• Anagram (For Mongo)
• Second Nature
• Anagram (For Mongo)
• Second Nature
• Rivendell
• Anagram (For Mongo)
• Second Nature
• Anagram (For Mongo)
• Second Nature
• Speed of Love
• Anagram (For Mongo)
• Second Nature

I don't mind some of those 'worst songs' tbh :ph34r:

I think I'm going bald = Great old school, catchy rock riff.
Emotion detector = Majestic. Beautiful guitar work from Alex and Geddy's voice is in fine form.
Speed of love = I know this song is hated around here, but I think it sh*ts on some of the more revered songs. Such as The Garden.

That the song was sung by grownups
Is a dire miscarried crime
Mined by meter-minded men
A determined waste of time

Neurotica would've been better received if A: it didn't have that tinny wimpy Rupert Hine sound and B: The chorus wasn't so weak

Geddy mentioned in an interview not long ago that this song was one of his "what were we thinking?" moments much like Tai Shan

A lot of Snakes could be included here. What a lethargic drag of an album

This is hard for me, as I think that Rivendell, I'm Think I'm Going Bold, Superconductor, Face Up, Dog Years, and The Stars Look Down are all pretty awful.

The rest I think are decent to superb.

I honestly can't pick any of these. None of them are really that great, but none are my worst song either. That accolade goes to Mystic Rhythms.

Neurotica, only because King Crimson did it first, and it was much more interesting than what Rush came up with.

"In a dog's life
A year is really more like seven
And all too soon a canine
Will be chasing cars in doggie heaven"

Quite possibly the worst rock lyrics by any artist, anywhere and at anytime in history.

I loathe Dog Years and Rivendell is a close second.  I guess I'm one of the few that likes Red Lenses.

I like Red Lenses too. Its Between the Wheels that sucks from GuP. Never understood the love.
I like that one too!  It had a lot of radio play in 1984.  How old are you?

Too old! :-) my name should give it away...

I like Second Nature. But I agree Anagram is a crapagram.
