POLL: Who's the Best Fictional Rush Fan?

Rush fans are among the most dedicated in all of rock so much so that their fandom has been immortalized on TV and in film.

In film, 2009’s I Love You, Man featured the Rush bromance of Peter Klaven (Paul Rudd) and Sydney Fife (Jason Segel) and birthed the phrase, “Slappin da bass!”

On TV, The Goldbergs features Johnny Atkins (Sean Marquette), a quasi-mysterious rebel/nerd that’s always wearing Rush t-shirts. He inexplicably wears eleven different Rush concert tees in tonight’s (February 20) episode airing at 8 PM EST on ABC.

The clip below shows Atkins in a previous episode introducing Erica Goldberg (Hayley Orrantia) to the wonder that is Rush and seducing her in the process.
