TrueRushFan™

1. A TrueRushFan™ is Someone who has an appreciation for the majority of the band's body of work. A TrueRushFan™ doesn't disregard an entire decade or multiple decades of RUSH's career. People who don't like anything Rush has done since 1982 aren't true fans.

 

2, YOU MUST LEGALLY own 90% of the band's music/songs. Format doesn't matter.

 

3. With exceptions for Millennials and EXTREME hardship you MUST have attended three live shows. Getting married and have two kids is NOT HARDSHIP.

 

 

If all three elements apply to you then you are TrueRushFan™. If not you are a more casual fan unworthy of the TrueRushFan™ honor. You may still be a nice person. The TRF has spoken, there will be no debate. 73 pin this post at your earliest convenience.

28 shows. At least 3 copies of each album. Been a confirmed fan since April 15 1981, and I liked the band in 1976 before I knew who they were.

 

Can I have my certification please?

Nice to know I shall not be shunned by the Rush community at large. I want my Star man lapel pin.

 

Did you say shunned?

 

Does this make me the Hester Prynne of TRF?

Whoa slow down folks. No one needs to worry aboot being shunned. Even casual RUSH fans are better people than most people. We're all equal here, some are just more equal than others.

Who said I was a casual fan? I am a TRF through and through!:)

 

A Scarlet Letter and an Animal Farm reference? Nice.:)

OK, I fit 1 and 2 but not 3. :rage: Sign me up for the CasualRushFan™ group! Sadly, I have never been able to see Rush live. I won't blame the three kids but I will blame the 9 moves in 13 years at one point. (We always moved ourselves so maybe it was extreme hardship! No, we are not in the military; it's a long story). I like to think I am still a nice person. :D :D

Of course you're still a nice person. Let me know if you need the HARDSHIP waiver form.

I used my original copy of Vapor Trails as a frisbee; do I get a plaque or something?

I like most of their work and generally all decades/eras, but I'm a millennial who uses Spotify Premium, so I feel like I cheated the system a bit. But hey, I'll gladly take the title of TrueRushFan™.

 

A gleaming alloy air car will be here shortly to escort you from the premises.

Spotify Premium is $10/month, so I will eventually have paid more than everyone else for their music. Eventually.

 

But I would like to buy vinyls once I have money for it.

I am good on the first two points. I own and listen to all the albums, yes even Feedback occasionally. I have purchased at least three copies in most of them and a few four in digital, CD, and 2015 vinyls.

 

I am gonna need a hardship waiver for the live shows, unless DVD's count? I have them ALL. :coy: It's hard to go to concerts; between babies being born (not just two BTW, I have 10) and a husband who hates my music, I never got a chance. I think I still qualify as a TRF. Hell I even have shoelaces. :LOL:

Whaaa??? Ten? You should fill out that waiver form, you have a good chance of getting it.

Considering the royalties they get for each spotify listen is diddly squat compared to the albums, and that you're paying for a buttload of other bands you may have to invest that $10/month for a few years...
