This’ll take some thought but there’s a good chance that nothing from the 90s or 21st century makes the cut.

 

Not even One Little Victory or some video Beavis And Butthead mocked?

 

Kicking out Bastille Day, 2112, or the like to make setlist space for OLV doesn’t make much sense to me, especially when the latter clearly isn’t as metal.

If RUSH played their heaviest, most metallic 20 song set in a special headbanging show, what songs would it consist of?

 

Do you count 2112 as one song? Hemispheres? If so, that’s two songs on my list :blaze:

It's up to whoever it is, some people like to split them up and some people like to count them as one song no matter what. With it being a hypothetical concert it doesn't matter that those two songs add up to 40 minutes, they still count as two songs in the 20. Rush proved they could play three hours anyway.

 

We'll assume that RUSH are at their peak of playing ability whenever that was, but all albums are available for the purposes of the thread.

"Welcome Home (Sanitarium)" by Metallica, which includes a tribute to "Tom Sawyer" at 4:06 - 4:21 marks and at 4:43 mark.

Rush is also thanked in the albums' credits.

 

This can be a bonus to the list in a way.

 

Easily their best album. 10/10 :yes:

100% concur. Metal masterpiece.

No "Broon`s Bane" - maybe it could segue into Madrigal?
