I think it's a pretty good cover of Subdivisions. Jacob Moon's version is hard to beat, though. The video for this ...is strange. Some interesting/cool visuals, but not much of the video seems to have anything to do with the song.

I don't normally like other people covering Rush' songs, but that version of Subdivisions really rocked!! It gave the song a ferocity that I hadn't felt before. The vocals could have had less autotune I'll admit, but imagine if Rush a re-record like this?? Shatner was great too, at least he didn't use his 'singing' voice for the passages!!

That would be a great project for the 40th, re-record 80s songs with that harder guitar driven edge rather than more synth based. It could work, what does everyone else think?

Why the Shatner hate? The Shat is awesome.

Just analyzed that album cover a bit. Love the 2112 reference and the Federation sleeping bag.

Really good cover! Listened to it a few times.
Not happy about Shatner being it though!

#28 X1YYZ........Thanks for a great laugh! I am new to guitar playing, and know how hard it can be to tackle Rush. I am fine with Working Man up until the solo, then I bow out ;-) I can do a few other songs, but just the 1st part and then I'm done. VERY FUNNY STUFF!

RUSH ON!

Good cover version. Much of the video is just spliced-together parts of commercials and movies.

All I have to say is link

That was terrible. Autotuned vocal cheese. Guitar solo massive fail. I don't know why I continue to subject myself to these Rush covers! I guess I deserve the punishment...?

P.S. I thought it was "okay"

I wish Shatner wouldn't have his hands in there. Have you ever seen what he considers to be "music"? Here he's sodomizing "Rocket Man" link

Plus - Shatner is an asshole and all around poor person.

Excellent cover. Loved the energy they bring to the song. Excellent video. And Shatner!

What's not to like?

This might get me banned...but I wish RUSH could make a video this clever and contemporary. It's clearly a cut-and-paste of clips from the internet, but to me it's like the video equivalent of mash-up songs like Girl Talk or DJ Shadow do. These guys are clearly fans...and one of the reasons Subdivisions is so often covered is that Neil hit one of his many sweet spots in terms of succinct and universal lyrics-it's as relevant today as it was 30 years ago.
And getting "The Shat"? Pure genius.
