Rush and Geddy Lee reference on tonight's episode of Jeopardy!
8:46PM EST | comments (12) |

One of the $800 answers in the Bass and Vocals category on tonight's episode of the American quiz show Jeopardy! made reference to Rush and Geddy Lee:

Geddy Lee Laid Down the Low End & Sang "The Spirit of Radio" and "Closer to the Heart" For This Canadian Band

The question of course was - What is Rush?. This is the 2nd Rush-related answer to appear on the show in the last month. Back on March 1st the show used a Neil Peart reference as the answer to the What is Rush? question. Rush was also referenced on the show back in February of 2011. Thanks to John at Cygnus-X1.net for the heads up and screenshot.

isn't "laid down the low end" an odd phrase for a Jeopardy answer?

Rush is ALWAYS the right answer!

I still think "Who is Neil Peart?" is my fave Jeopardy "question." Finally watching ASII this week. :)

So will Lerxst get an answer in May? It would only be fair...

Actually, Lamb, the past tense IS correct, as the "answer" refers to recording tracks for both of those tunes. You owe Alex Trebek $800 Canadian. :)
