2112 (album)

2112 is a rock album released on April 20, 1976 by Rush.

It includes a seven-part "autobiographical" suite written by Neil Peart about a budding young musician, uncertain if the modern world and the powers that be will accept his musical submissions and contributions as they are, for what they are, followed by different meanderings. A theme of the albums is also what life can be like "on the road" away from families, having to face numerous and varied fears, insecurities, and temptations. Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson wrote lyrics for one song each.

In the liner notes, the title song is annotated With acknowledgement to the genius of Ayn Rand; it is heavily influenced by her novelette Anthem.
