It's his whiny little voice, and the way the music seems to start and stop so suddenly and erratically. I don't know, everybody hates some type of music, and I'm sure you can't give exact reasons why other than you just do.

exactly...i just turn off Rush if it comes on the radio...Geddy Lee's voice just grates on me. unfortunately i feel the same way about Plant and Zepplin now

Not a big fan of Geddy Lee's voice, but I do enjoy Rush a lot more than the Thompson Twins

I can't stand Rush, but Thompson Twins shouldn't be allowed in a field of 128 bands let alone 64.

The Thompson Twins sold 50 million albums. They're not nobodies, and they aren't out of place in the tournament.

They're on the lower echelon of bands here, but they do deserve to be here.

Not that I think the Twins are nobodies, but what exactly makes them better for this list than say Def Leppard who have sold more than 65 million albums worldwide, two RIAA certified Diamond Records and are considered one of the 50 greatest rock bands ever by VH1 listeners? Why isn't Alice In Chains listed ahead of the Twins? After all, AIC seven records all went platinum and they are considered one of the most influential metal/grunge bands ever? Can the Thompson Twins boast that many consistently top selling albums or that type of influence in current music? No Soundgarden, no Iron Maiden, no Yardbirds, but God forbid we don't include the Thompson Twins, who's most recognizable song wasn't even their own?

That said, I just can't defend their inclusion on this list. They were a fine 80's band with some very nice songs, but they don't belong on a list of the 64 Greatest Bands EVER.
