fangirl SQUEEE!!!!

This is a googolplex level of awesomeness.

Rush on The Colbert Report, their first American TV appearance in over 30 years.


A FOAF said that that "Rush played through his outro and credits, as he pucked up a pillow and nightcap and went to sleep on his desk. When the next episode started the following night, they were still playing. Colbert woke up when they finished and started the show." So FREAKING awesome!

Thanks for the link, fossilapostle .

Tom Sawyer? Sigh. 20 years ago I'd already seen them do Tom Sawyer half a dozen times. Wish they'd done something NEWER.

Their song choice was (I'm sure) highly influenced by the program they were on. They "get" Colbert: they get what he's doing, what his persona is doing, and they're calling him a Tom Sawyer -- a modern day warrior.

I saw those episodes when they aired... I thought it was fantastic how he made a comment about how long Rush's songs are, then ran out to close the show while they were still playing. The next night (through the magic of television), made started the show as if we got a whole hour of Colbert. It made me laugh my ass off!!!
