Well, Bald, but I have a hard time listening to anything but Lakeside Park from it the past year or so..

I love this album, and I really like this song. But my vote has to go to The Necromancer. Not a fan or the spoken word segments.

I just think it's so cool that Kiss's opening band decided to respond to '(I think I'm)going Blind' with 'I Think I'm Going Bald'! And even put it on their album! Green little Canadians they were, but cocky and funny still! And I don't need to say that they blew the Kiss song out of the water!

I had to vote for Lakeside :/

Sounds like you're throwing Bald under the bus by default..? Don't be that one guy ;)

Caress of Steel is Rush's most underrated album, and I don't think there is a "worst" or "bad" song on it. But if I had to pick my least favorite, I would definitely pick I Think I'm Going Bald. I still love the song, though, it's just that the other songs on the album are better. The song itself just doesn't have the hopeful spirit of the rest of the album. And in case it wasn't obvious enough.......................... the lyrics are stupid.

Im going to go off the grid and say Baccus Plateau. One ofnthe worst songs Neil ever wrote lyrics for. Insipid melody. Dont know how or why this ever saw the light of day. Ill take Going Bald over this tripe any day.

Caress Of Steel is now my second favourite Rush album after AFTK. I'm amazed to say that Fly By Night could be my third.

Just not sure I could ever really define any of these songs as "worst".
