Pearl Jam - I want to hate them. I have always wanted to hate them. I totally understand people on RYM hating on them. I couldn't stand teenage girls singing their songs when they came out. Eddie Vedder.
Nevertheless, I still like some of their songs. (Not their most popular ones.) I still grew up with their first two albums as a teenager. And they are good musicians. Extremely mixed feelings.
Rush - I like them. I love their hits. The singer's voice does not bother me.
OTOH, I used to have a few of their studio albums, and they were mostly unlistenable. I only liked "Moving Pictures" as and album.
