Remembering 5 of Neil Peart’s Most Powerful Song Lyrics

Neil Peart, who performed as if he had as many appendages as an octopus, was the ever-reliable backbone of prog-rock band Rush’s sound. Yet despite his bombast, he never overplayed.

They Might Be Giants’ Flood Turns 30: Musicians Extol the Landmark Album

Two weeks into the 1990s, two Brooklynites named John released a clever, eclectic, blissfully quirky collection of 19 tracks called Flood on Elektra Records—and they did this at a time when major label rosters were still primarily comprised of proven pop stars, hair-metal heavies, and R&B icons.
