Rush is a Canadian prog-rock band, which means that they play 20 minute rock 'n' roll songs with maple syrup dumped all over them. Their concerts look like an eleven-dimensional multiverse made up of tiny vibrating strings, and nobody likes theoretical physics. Aside from that, they put on a sweet show and rock it out. They have perfected the art of the in-concert drum solo, even employing bass syrup bottles and maple-leaf crash cymbals in live performances to show off how Canadian they are.
They will forever be known for playing a 23 hour and 40 minute long set on The Colbert Report.
The drummer and lyricist is obsessed with Ayn Rand. Obsessed.

Rush, Eh, and the TruthEdit
RUSH was formed by Alex Lifeson, Geddy Lee and John Rutsey and replaced by Neil Peart Despite their occasional lapses into liberalism and thinking, Rush is a bastion of truthiness to the prog-rock world.
Well, What's The Problem With Rush, Eh?Edit
They think too much with the head instead of feeling with the gut. Alex Lifeson is the only original remianing RUSH Member. Geddy Lee and Niel Peart are replacements for the originals Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. The only problem with this is that Alex Lifeson kicked Stephen out for sleeping with his girlfriend, instead of understanding that his girlfriend is now blessed.
July 16, 2008 NailingEdit
- One of Rush's albums is actually just a singing paperback copy of The Fountainhead.
- Test for Echo, Rush's 1996 release, has an illustration of some Inuit Indian thing from Canada on it, which might explain why the album is so unpopular with, well, everybody except for people who are high (see: Canadians).
