** Another unlikely source of unity came from the [[UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball National Football League]]. All three networks broadcasting NFL playoff games on the weekend after Peart's death frequently played snippets of Rush songs leading into commercial breaks. One could also clearly hear "Tom Sawyer" playing over the Baltimore Ravens' public address system in their game versus the Tennessee Titans.

* The song "One Little Victory". It's the band's first song after Neil's family tragedies, and it's Neil telling listeners that absolutely ''no matter what'' happens to you, you absolutely can get past it; all you have to do is look at even small victories as... well, that, a victory. It's worth noting too that this message is coming from a man who ''lost his teenage daughter in a horrific auto accident and his wife to cancer [[TraumaCongaLine in the same year]]''. It's Neil's message to everyone in a total pit of despair, saying, "You got out of bed? Good. Keep going. Fight every challenge that comes your way. You've got this."

** For those who want more context: Neil Peart is known for being [[ShrinkingViolet notoriously shy]], and at the end of every other concert up to R40, he had always gotten up from the drums, immediately exited, and drove off on his motocycle without so much as taking a bow for the audience. At the end of R40, however, take a bow for the audience is exactly what he did. Yeah, RUSH fans were in shock that day. Doubles as a TearJerker.

** At the end of the song, Geddy Lee sings "Absalom, Absalom, Absalom!", which is the name of King David's eldest son, who died fighting his father for the throne. Neil added these lyrics after reading a novel about Absalom by Creator/WilliamFaulkner. Geddy's own son appears in the official music video, riding a missile. All of this adds further meaning to the song when it hits you that the lyrics can also be about [[AdultFear parental concern over nuclear weapons]]:
