The lyrics to this 70's song still ring true today--for awhile anyway.

Here's the live version.

Rush is still recording and touring as a power trio for 40 years now and were inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year.

My musical seventies began with my first serious album purchase: 'Machine Head', by Deep Purple, soon to be followed by one of the greatest live albums of all time, 'Made In Japan'. I was 15:

Then, mid-70s, I went strongly prog, and couldn't stop playing ELP and Yes. And one of the very greatest songs in this vein is the epic Karn Evil 9. I was 17:

By the end of the 70s, I was full-tilt punk, back to the basics of rock 'n' roll with a ferocious, driving energy, and that rounds out the trifecta of a great musical decade. All I can say is...GABBA GABBA HEY!!!! I was 19:

I was into all of these except the Ramones. I never quite got them. They were too punk for me.

The summer of '74, I was 11 years old and was held up inside in the A/C for about one month because of a horrible case of poison ivy. I was and still am hyper allergic to it. My sister is 7.5 years older than me and my brother was 4.5 years older (I'm now approaching 51). I had lots of time to listen to their albums--YES, VINYL! I listen to everything that was coking out at the time and just a little before. Deep Purple is still one of my favorites. My first purchased album was later that fall and it was a Black Sabath album that I know that my brother didn't have, 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath'.

Rush's first album came out that year and my brother had it. I became a Rush fan with their first album and still am to this day.

So many great songs from the 70s.

The 60's and the 70's was the Rock and Roll Renaissance. :headbang:

Although I came of age in the '70s and love much of its music, the objective music critic in me acknowledges that the densest concentration of superb rock music was produced in the '90s and leaked into the new millennium. So many genres reched the highest peak of their development during that decade, it's really astonishing.

And Rush was there to raise the bar for everyone. :)

That's true to a great extent, just ask the guys of Dream Theatre, but mostly based on their work in the 70s. My very first real rock concert was when I went to their 2112 tour in--what was it? '77, '78?--and was simply BLOWN AWAY by them! I was fairly close to the stage, too.

But they went through an uncertain period in the 80s, when they seemed to go in a New Wavish direction, even with the electric blue blazers and Pet-Shop-Boys-like hair! AND a keyboard!!!! Gaaahhhh!

They're a POWER TRIO, man!

Even their 80's stuff was more complicated than most any other rock at the time. They really went techno more so that new wave. It was almost like the were mocking new wave. Sort of how they were mocking rap with Roll the Bones.

This is from their latest album. These 60 year old rockers still pack lots of energy into their music. They are THE power trio.

The eighties was a cultural black hole.
