    Do we have a theme?

    I’d say that the plots, such as they are, are transparent where they are not opaque but… the theme?

    “Do not think you will be able to truly overcome adversity without a sense of humor” is my best shot.Report

      The band, or the commentator?

      It’s less annoying than the commentator, but could represent musical notation for the band.Report

          Patrick – I likes me some Rush; you are not alone. They didn’t turn out to be hugely predictive of the most of the kinds of music I would eventually find most engrossing, but they were pivotal in my youth in getting me to appreciate artists doing their own thing and attempting to say something, regardless of trends or ‘coolness’.

          I don’t know if you’ve seen that doc ‘Beyond The Lighted Stage’ but it kind of prompted me to revisit them after many years; it was cool how many younger musicians (that mostly bear little of Rush’s musical DNA) gave them props just for being themselves, and the inspiration that provides artistically.

                Clearly none of you have seen Nickleback live.Report

              • I have not seen Nickelback live, however, I know a number of people who dislike them, but have seen them live and the general feeling is that they put on a great show.

                I’m still not going to see them, though. There are lots of great shows out there.Report

                A few years back I randomly won tickets to see Bon Jovi at Giants Stadium on a radio call-in contest. The week off, I was feeling particularly run down and not all that interested in going. The day before, I spoke to my friend who was going to come with me and said, “I may just bail. The tickets were free anyway. I mean, if someone like Nickleback is opening, I might reconsider.” Cue to me checking out the lineup and LO-AND-BEHOLD… IT’S NICKLEBACK!

                We went. It was awesome. They play douchey rock anthems with catchy enough hooks. And everyone’s hatred of them makes my genuine appreciation of them feel a little guilty, which I like. As for their live performance, they came out, played their hits, played them exactly like they sound on the radio so everyone can sing along, and left. Perfect for an opening act.Report

    Yes, but do you like it better than Rush eating meatloaf while getting a circumcision before they got their immunizations.
