After years of being overlooked, the Toronto rock trio Rush will finally be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame next April. The news came Tuesday afternoon as Canadian music fans (and rock fans in general) went to Twitter to express their love for the band and the long overdue selection.
And the news just became official: #Rush finally to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. #justicejian ghomeshi

After over a decade of being snubbed from the induction into Cleveland’s sacred hall, Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart don’t appear to be harboring any bad feelings towards the late acceptance.

I feel bad that #Rush got inducted into the RnR Hall of Fame. It’s more rock-n-roll to be snubbed by that institution. #ButCongratsAnywayGeoff Stoddart
