The worst to me, and in my opinion, off albums I listen to regularly...

The Mission (blah, the intro makes me cringe)
Bravest Face
We hold on
Good News First
Middletown Dreams
Emotion Detector

I don't care if the rest of you lot love them, I don't care if they speak to you, I don't care if they strike a chord.  I don't care, I don't like 'em.
Middletown Dreams???  WTF!!!  That's TOP TEN Rush for me...
She hates the lyrics, especially "Dreams flow across the heartland..."

Another glass half empty thread. I will NOT make a list of 5 bad Rush songs because I'd rather revere Rush for how AWESOME they are! And the fact some songs are weaker than others is positive in the respect that Rush always creates something different. That's why they are so awesome! So continue on with this stupid thread if you must.

The op DID say “in Your Opinion” in the thread title itself.

Knowing other opinions can be interesting to some. That’s partly why many of us are here.

While I am thrilled my post elicited such an impassioned reaction, the thread title did have the disclaimer 'In your opinion' and yes, in my opinion that is a horribly trite, just entirely stupid line.

And please direct your attention to the last line of that post.  "I don't care if the rest of you lot love them, I don't care if they speak to you, I don't care if they strike a chord.  I don't care, I don't like 'em"

to reiterate...

...I STILL DON'T CARE, I do not care...no me importa...je m'en fous...I am the opposite of caring on this matter.  Be offended.  Scoff away...i just cannot seem to give a damn.  Nope, not a care was had.

The early 80s are still the 80s.

I can’t think of too many good 90s lyrics other than Bravado and Ghost of a Chance. And in this century I’m only coming up with Ghost Rider and Vapor Trail.

With the 80s I can pick stuff from every album there.
