There are jazz albums on the list. Jazz albums. That says a lot.

Oh yeah, Pavement is great.

There should be jazz albums.

I dunno. The list obviously leans towards rock/pop. To my ears, jazz is worthy of its own list. Why mix genres?

The list is for all genres. Also, jazz is very important to rock music.

You know, if some magazine or organization shit on [my friends or] someone I'd admire, I would take it personally.

Why would you take it personally? That makes no sense. RS doesn't know you or owe you. Just because RS is shit and doesn't like RUSH doesn't mean they're taking a personal jab at you.

Hmmm ... this thread generated more interest than I thought it would when I posted it.

Honestly, the only reason I posted it was that I was at the book store, saw the magazine, and I thought, "I wonder where they placed Moving Pictures?"  It did not occur to me that no Rush album would be in the top 500 ... top 100, sure I could buy that.  Top 250 ... maybe.  But top 500?  

And, to clarify, I was not saying that others on the list don't deserve recognition.  They certainly do.  But if you're talking about influence on musicians, etc ... how many musicians say they were influenced by listening to the Replacements?  How many say they were influenced by Rush, tried to emulate their playing styles, etc?  

I'm not trying to convince anyone here -- that would be preaching to the choir.  I just thought it was interesting that no Rush album would make the top 500.

Pretty much every punk band since the Replacements has been influenced by the Replacements.

I'm pretty sure if 'Rolling Stone' is going to print a list of Canadian hard rock trios from Toronto, Rush isn't in the top 20.

RS readers voted Rush as the best prog band ever. RS has given Rush a lot of coverage since their growing popularity since 2007.

Also, if I remember correctly, Permanent Waves, Moving Pictures, and Power Windows all got good reviews by the mag.

I got a complementary Rolling Stone subscription once.

It was still too expensive.

True, but we haven't had a good "Bash Rolling Stone Magazine" thread here in at least a few weeks.
