The 11 Best Rush Songs for 2.1.12

Those who jot the date down in a certain style today may have noticed that it is 2-1-12. Fans of the Canadian rock group Rush are celebrating the date as it is written by listening to the 1976 album 2112. Or any of their favorite Rush songs.
Hopefully most of you know that today’s date is Feb. 1, 2012. Or 2.1.12. If you’re a Rush fan, there’s a good chance that you’re geeking out over the fact that it’s as close as you’re going to get to the year 2112 — barring any success achieving the same immortality already enjoyed by Rock Gods Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart.

“2112? is, of course, the conceptual title track of the veteran Canadian rock trio’s masterful prog rock epic and breakthrough album from 1976 that, when boiled down from it’s far-out, intergalactic plot, basically sets the idea of individual versus the state. More important: it freakin’ rocks!

If you do your dates like most of the world then today is 1/2/12 and you've missed 2/1/12 by 30 days.

Of course if you do your dates the logical way around then today would be 2012/02/01

Doesn't look like much Rush love here, but I can't stop watching this. Just an amazing performance by 3 guys pushing 60:
