List Rules Vote for your favorite Rush songs, not just singles and hits.

These are the best Rush songs, ranked by fans like you. Progressive rock heroes Rush is known for their epic tracks and technically gifted live performances. As this list shows, the Canadian trio also knows how to write a great song, with many singles and critically acclaimed tracks under their belt. This list includes every Rush single, but true fans know there are other great songs to vote on other than "Fly By Night" and "Tom Sawyer."

Rocking since 1968, Rush has charted countless singles thanks to bassist, keyboardist, and lead vocalist Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson, and drummer and lyricist Neil Peart. Although the band's musical style may have changed over the years, Rush consistently produces top-charting singles, which earned them a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013. 

Music videos are included next to each song name, so if you haven't heard it you can listen to it right here on this page. Is one of your favorite Rush songs missing from this poll? Add it to the list so it has a chance to rise to the top.

If the order of this list bothers you, then stick it to the man by creating your own version and re-ranking it. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you like.
