Rush By Numbers

I needed some data for a little side project, so I decided to use Rush songs. In the spirit of Rush geekery, I grabbed a few statistics. In the future, this might be come a dynamic page, but for now....

The data looks at studio albums of original songs only; so Feedback, live albums, and the solo albums not included.

Time and Motion

On their 19 studio albums, Rush recorded 165 songs, with a total playing time of 11 hours, 49 minutes and 40 seconds. Additionally:

Different Strings

In terms of song composition, Rush wrote at least one song in 22 of the possible 24 keys.

Speed of Song

Finally, for tempo, Rush's song catalog would be allegro (fast; perhaps rushed?)


The data has been compiled by me from the following sources. You can view the raw data.
