* The outro video for the R40 tour shows the band going back to their dressing room, only to be denied entry by the puppet from the cover of ''A Farewell to Kings'' denying them entry, and their dressing room being filled with other characters from their previous album covers. Alex's line surprised most of the crowd:

*** Watching Alex's hands, one can tell he's trying to ''actually play the song'' as he would onstage instead of pressing the buttons according to color. Just a reminder that [[IDontKnowMortalKombat being good at guitar does not make you good at Guitar Hero and vice versa.]]

*** And now taken further on the 2015 R40 tour: They start with the Gedison, but then gradually replace the stage equipment with the dryers and chicken roasters.

They end up with tiny amps on chairs like the band would have had to make do with in the early 1970s at the end of the show, wherein a disco ball descends from the ceiling and the big screen displays a screen simulating a high school gymnasium, as a ShoutOut to the band's early life playing school dances.

** There's also Paul and Jason arguing with Neil over [[ItsPronouncedTroPAY how to pronounce Neil's last name]]. Geddy deadpans "I think he would know."

*** And on the Clockwork Angels tour, he uses... something manufactured by a fake company called [[PunnyName Gedison]]. It's a large horn, a brain in a jar, an array of smaller horns... and a popcorn maker. Along the bottom, words light up like the sausage maker's "real time, half time, bass time, sausage time": bassy, brainy, horny, corny.

An alternate, rarely-seen Gedison had "basstime, brainiac, horntime, have a snack."



* Alex Lifeson's "speech" at their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, even considering that everyone expected Alex to do something funny. In spite of that, they certainly didn't expect him to do [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHjQZJ1RLQA this.]] He manages to tell the whole story of Rush and the Rock Hall... without ever using more than one word. (Don't worry... it's family friendly.) It's even funnier than it would be normally because of that beautiful [[{{Troll}} troll smile]] of Alex's as he steps up to the podium.

** Geddy later stated that the entire time Alex was talking, he and Neil were contemplating ways to make him stop. Watching them in the background, one can see Geddy mouth "I'm gonna [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] kill you" and Neil lift up his trophy as if to whack Alex on the head with it.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wo-bsaCnSgY Geddy Lee doing the ice bucket challenge?]] Pretty funny. ''A bobblehead Geddy Lee, speaking in a Mickey Mouse style falsetto, doing the ice bucket challenge, before panning to the real Geddy, who gets ice dumped on by Alex Lifeson after saying he'll get away with it?'' Hilarious!

* During the 2010-2011 Time Machine tour, the band used an outro video after the concert, involving the main characters of ILoveYouMan faking backstage passes and sneaking into the band's green room post-show. They make fools of themselves. Neil only shows irritation when they insist he's pronouncing his own name wrong, but the whole faking-the-laminates and sneaking-into-the-green-room thing doesn't seem to bother him... until he notices they've [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking eaten half of his sandwich]]. Only then does he threaten to get someone down there to beat them up and throw them out if they don't leave!
