RUSH: 2021-2112=45

April 1st, marked the 45th anniversary of Rush releasing their fourth album, 2112.

Often described as the first progressive metal album, it saved them from being dropped by Mercury Records.

In 2016, for the album’s 40th anniversary, it was re-released in a deluxe format, which added an additional CD of rare, live and previously unreleased material — including newly recorded tracks from 2112 featuring Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins from the Foo Fighters, along with others. And the DVD contains a restored 1976 concert from the Capitol Theatre in Passaic [pr: puh-SAY-ick], New Jersey, plus bonus videos, interviews and more.
