Every December 21, which in much of the world is read as 21 of 12, alludes to the Canadian trio's first masterpiece.
The number 2112 has become synonymous with Rush over the years due to their 1976 album of the same name. And since today is the 21st day of the 12th month, written as 21/12 in many parts of the world, Rush fans over the years have dubbed it as a sort of unofficial Rush holiday.
Rush was a Canadian progressive rock band formed in 1968 in Toronto, Ontario. The lineup remained stable since 1974, when Neil Peart replaced original drummer John Rutsey before their first U.S. tour. It consisted of bassist, keyboardist and singer Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson and drummer and lyricist Neil Peart.
Since the release of their first single in 1973 and eponymous debut album in March 1974, they have been recognized for their musical mastery, for their complex compositions and for the eclectic subject matter of their lyrics, dominated by science fiction, fantasy, libertarian philosophy and also developing humanitarian, social, emotional and environmental themes.
