I thought it odd that I saw so many Brazilians wearing Rush maple leaf t-shirts while I was working there last fall. Turns out Rush had just played in packed soccer stadiums in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, and they have a large and very enthusiastic fan base there. This is a site for a Brazilian Ru...

I would listen to all of these, RIGHT NOW, if I could. How come nobody ever talks about Rockpile or how great they were?


Maybe because they recorded only one album under the name "Rockpile" (sadly).

Everything by Portugal. The Man, especially their most recent albums ( American Ghetto and The Satanic Satanist ). I just learned a few days ago that the band was formed in Wasilla, AK (yes, the hometown of one whose name shall go unmentioned). "When The War Ends" is the grooviest song ever.
