* Long concerts. Since 1996, their usual concert length was three hours. They went on for a 60 or 70 minute opening set, then took a 20 minute break before coming back for the rest of the set. There's a reason they didn't use opening bands.

Rush were 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''.

The group's line-up remained consistent since Peart joined in 1974 to replace founding drummer John Rutsey, making them the [[LongRunnerLineUp third-longest enduring band in rock music]] (only Music/ZZTop and Music/GoldenEarring have been together longer). Once Peart joined the band, he became the primary lyricist, while Lee and Lifeson concentrated on the music. Before that point, Lee and Lifeson did all the songwriting; Rutsey had written some lyrics for their eponymous 1974 debut album, but never gave them to the others.

* UncommonTime: There is a common folk myth that Neil Peart can't play in 4/4. This isn't quite true, but their songs do switch meter signatures an awful lot. "Subdivisions" is a good example of this; it switches between 7/8, 4/4, and 3/4 pretty regularly. An exhaustive list of their use of this trope would probably be as long as this article.

These myths tend to get started by people who can't count beats.[[/note]]
