** A rather emotional example of one came on the very last night of Rush’s R40 tour. During every other RUSH concert up to that point, the notoriously shy Neil Peart would get off of the drums, immediately exit and get on his motorcycle, without even taking a bow for the audience. At the end of R40? [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MWrV0xRUTuk This happened.]] Needless to say, many years were shed, fans of RUSH were shocked, and Neil had made it very, ‘’very’’ clear that this very well could be RUSH’s last tour ever and a final farewell to the fans.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Shortly after the death of Neil Peart's daughter and wife, the normally [[LargeHam hammy]] and playful Alex Lifeson was in a state of such depression that ''he didn't think about music for a whole year.'' Keep in mind that this is the same guy who rants on stage and has said that he loves to sing but is "not allowed to."
** And as for [[TheKirk Geddy]], AKA the guy who was [[ThePollyanna always optimistic about the band's future]], and [[http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/rushs-geddy-lee-on-bands-future-were-not-able-to-agree-on-doing-more-tours/ continued to be optimistic]] even after their last-scale tour? Yeah, [[DarkestHour he pretty much]] [[HeroicBSOD thought the band]] ''[[DespairEventHorizon was done.]]''

* CarefulWithThatAxe: ''Oh, boy.''
** The biggest example, of course: "Every nerve is... TORN APAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAART!"- AKA ''the highest note in Geddy Lee's career.''


Added DiffLines:

** Though Geddy is actually more of a Phlegmatic/Choleric mix, especially when you consider [[LargeHam what he was like]] [[CarefulWithThatAxe back in the day.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Or, as Geddy himself put it, say the word "ear," and then put a "p" in front of it and a "t" at the end. "P-ear-t." In other words, it's said exactly as it's spelled.

Rush are a Canadian rock trio formed in 1968, although, listening to some of their songs, you'd never guess there are only three of them. They're probably best known for Geddy Lee's "wait, is that a guy?" vocals and prominent bass and Neil Peart's early Creator/AynRand-inspired lyrics ([[OldShame though he has since distanced himself from her]]). While the band has always been an album rock (and later classic rock) radio favourite, Rush saw a decent boost to their popularity for their contributions to the video game ''VideoGame/RockBand''.

In 2015, the band announced that their R40 Tour, which concluded on August 1 of that year, would be their last large-scale tour due to health issues for Lifeson and Peart. However, they have left open the possibility of smaller tours and future studio projects.

* TallPoppySyndrome: If read metaphorically, "The Trees" has this message. For whatever it's worth, though, [[WordOfGod Peart]] claims the song was never intended to have a political interpretation; it was evidently just inspired by a cartoon about trees arguing.

One of those bands that [[LoveItOrHateIt splits people down the middle]] - a lot of people hate ProgressiveRock in general, and many disapprove of [[AuthorAppeal Peart's]] [[NeverLiveItDown early fondness]] for Ayn Rand. To be fair, while Peart acknowledges he still has areas of agreement with Rand, he does not agree with her whole [[UsefulNotes/{{Objectivism}} philosophy]], and has removed her "thank you" credit from ''2112''[[labelnote:*]]as of at least the original compact disc issue[[/labelnote]].
