QuotePeople, we have a winner. That, without doubt, is the cleverst parody I have read. Full stop

Bisto, I salute you!

Aye, the boy done well.
He ought to get over to The Rush Forum and post it, they'd love it  ::)
Legend in my own Mind


And get taken off Neil's Christmas Card list? Not likely !

Twilight Zone

A backstage man  he meets n greets you
No access pass..heââ,¬â,,¢s going to beat you
Beneath the tat the merch stall lies
Better off just buying pies
Teeth are false the magic's lost
Every song Leeââ,¬â,,¢s mentioned is dross

Youââ,¬â,,¢re entitled to have a moan
Beyond this stuff   more songs are known
Had a pee and still thereââ,¬â,,¢s more
Then itââ,¬â,,¢s the soloââ,¬Â¦what a bore
Explore the car park  in frustration
Enter the bar avoid sedation

Peart wakes up lost heââ,¬â,,¢s got a frown
Wondering why heââ,¬â,,¢s feeling down
Its looking bad for biker boy
Its just become his bashed up toy
No repair no bike to ride
Hit the tour bus and did collide
From the Land of Honest Men.


Set List so far......

The Trees
Nothing For Something
Tom Sawyer
Cinderella Man x 2
Snooze Time (Dreamline)

Which ****?

The site is back
Too many loons
Admins are thick, but still
The vigilantes blather on
The donation bar is nil.

Fanbois disjointed in this faultering site
The faces are twisted and grotesque
Fishy and Jonners talk absolute sh!te
The mob moves like demons possessed
Quiet in conscience, calm in their right
Confident their ways are best

The closeted rise
In a straight manââ,¬â,,¢s guise
In pink, tweed or twill
Madmen fed on beer and fries
To eat and fart and smell

They say theyââ,¬â,,¢re our saviours and theyââ,¬â,,¢ll put rude stuff
In our refund rants and in PMââ,¬â,,¢s
They say that snakes and arrows is dangerous
In our cd players and cd store shelves
That they only know what's best for us
They must rise and save us from ourselves

Quick to judge
Quick to slander
Bullying and underhand
They gay dance and Jonners
And Fish walk hand in hand...
I wish I could live it all again.


The new songs are an abomination

New World Man

Heââ,¬â,,¢s a dedicated lover
Of a musical has-been
Heââ,¬â,,¢s a middle-aged pedantic
Paying for a big machine

Heââ,¬â,,¢s got a problem with the poison
Spread about this site
He knows he shouldnââ,¬â,,¢t reply
When they say ââ,¬ËœS&Aââ,¬â,,¢ is sh1te

Learning to bear the heat from the old Rush fan
Learning to like the songs on an ââ,¬Ëœalso ranââ,¬â,,¢

He bends to take the bandââ,¬â,,¢s mistakes
And celebrates the crap they make
Heââ,¬â,,¢s old enough to know itââ,¬â,,¢s sh1te
But blind enough to like it
He knows that itââ,¬â,,¢s a polished turd
But weak enough to buy it

Heââ,¬â,,¢s a New Rush Fan

Heââ,¬â,,¢s a constant self-deceiver
Putting bullsh1t through his ears
Heââ,¬â,,¢d like to re-arrange
The faces of the moaning queers

Heââ,¬â,,¢s got a problem with the tour
Theyââ,¬â,,¢re not playing Larger Bowl
But theyââ,¬â,,¢ve dropped Freewill for Earthshine
So heââ,¬â,,¢ll keep his self control

Trying to save the site from the old Rush fan
Trying to pave the way for a new Rush clan

Heââ,¬â,,¢s not concerned with Permanent Waves
He canââ,¬â,,¢t admit theyââ,¬â,,¢ve had their day
Heââ,¬â,,¢s bright enough to see the light
But weak enough to lose it
He simply canââ,¬â,,¢t accept the truth
And the band are going to abuse it

Heââ,¬â,,¢s a New Rush Fan


The new songs are an abomination


a belter from Madrasers...excellent....

Excellent efforts - more thought than some of the originals imo.
