Just since the start of 2013 a number of bands and shows have come out with covers and tributes of Rush songs.

A Finnish death metal band called Omnium Gatherum is covering “Subdivisions” as a bonus track on an upcoming album, Beyond. Look for release in late February.

On TV, a version of “Working Man” is used as the opening theme to the new HBO TV series Transporter. The arrangement is by Jamie Forsyth and the singer is Danielle Armstrong. The show will premiere in the U.S. this summer.
