Any answer that isn't "Rivendell" is wrong. That song is an embarrassment to listen to. Any other song from Rush's catalog comes on in the radio with some friends and you could say "eh, yeah, that's not their best moment." Rivendell's the kind of thing that will get you some really curious looks.

That's your opinion. I rather like the song.

I really don't understand how this could be name checked as the worst Rush song, nor do I get how it is embarrassing.

Funny how some people think Rush could do no wrong in their first 4-5 records. Those are the records I never listen to.

This thread is worse song.  You'll need to start a new one for worst 4-5 records.

Sure, it's a goofy way to start a song, lyrically. But I'm sure some people would say the same thing about The Trees

I gotta go with Tai Shan. Only Rush song I absolutely can not listen to. I've tried. Doesn't work. Too Asian-inspired.

Limelight and Fly By Night are two.

Others include:

Neurotica
You Bet Your Life
The Speed Of Love
Carve Away The Stone

That's pretty much everything.

I would be one of those guys.  My first TRF thread was on that very topic, I think...Neil's horrible first lines.  Should be from 2006, I think.

I have tto say i like nearly everything Rush.For me to select their worst song i would have to look at all the factors in the song before i would give an answer.Was the lyrics crap(Dog Years)but the music great,crap music but good lyrics,crap production but good songs,Ged whoahing too much but Alex plays a great solo,etc.All this troubles me and i am afraid it will take some amount of time and research to come to a conclusion and therefore i will be unable to give an answer till 2112(and no that is not the answer).Thanks for reading.
