Rush is a Canadian Progressive rock band with a phenomenal cult following. Their induction into the Hall of Fame was disputed for years, with many people being upset at their rejection year-after-year. Much of their album 2112 is designed to be played as one track, a la Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd. Lead singer Geddy Lee gets his name from how his mother pronounced his first name, Gary. Limelight is about life as superstars. The Spirit of Radio paraphrases the end of The Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel.
