Cover Band at RNC Butchers Rush’s ‘Limelight’; The Internet is Not Amused

Although many got a kick out of the lyrics, "Ill-equipped to act, with insufficient tact."

Tonight at the end of night three of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, a cover band took the stage; their performance of Rush’s “Limelight” got swift reaction from twitter, and it was generally not too positive.

The Republican National Convention house band, led, shockingly, by professional musician and the former bandleader for Saturday Night Live, G.E. Smith, annihilated a bunch of classics (Bowie, too) to the dismay of many.

Some suggested that the selection of the song was actually the band trolling the audience, although perhaps they hadn’t actually read the lyrics.

Rush has yet to comment on the use of their song.
