Rush doesn’t do boring 4/4 time or compact four-and-a-half-minute songs for them, oh no, ha ha. They still have a 4:1 studio to live album ratio for almost 25 years. They’ve received 24 gold, 14 platinum, and 3 multi-platinum albums, placing them third behind The Beatles and The Rolling Stones for the most consecutive gold or platinum studio albums by a rock band. They also have seven Grammy award nominations, although it has never won. The band, however, has won several Juno Awards, was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1994, and inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013.
CBC Music took some time to illustrate Rush, by the numbers.
