Oops, that's for the documentary thread. Carry on, Jeopardy fans.
Does anyone notice they rhymed 'you' with 'you'?

A big thumbs down to the Rush sound-alike music.

Because fingers. Because hunger. Because barbecue.

'How can we eat?', 'Why do we eat?', 'Where shall we have lunch?"

Whereas a great portion of the population watch Jeopardy, the writers must often "throw the dog a bone" and give an easy question. If every question were difficult to answer, viewers would tune away to watch "Entertainment Tonight" or some other tripe. (Hey, I LOVE Jeopardy, so no complaints here!)

Capital of Latvia? ...What is Riga?

the zeppelin tribute band are call NO QUARTER.
I heard that both bands are INCREDIBLE.

Here is the setlist that they will play (at least they did a few weeks ago)

set 1

red barchetta
spirit of radio
closer to the heart
new world man
tears???? shocked me too!!!
the camera eye

set 2

R30 medley
in the mood
analog kid
the pass
the trees
tom sawyer
headlong flight
working man

not a bad setlist if i say so myself.

There have been a couple of answers in the past concerning Rush. I believe one was something like "Geddy Lee fronts this trio of Canadians".

Off topic, but I'm bored:

So, I started listening to Rush as a teenager thanks to Chronicles, and the Roll the Bones tour was my first.

Anyways, I've been to every concert except Counterparts (they didn't come to Portland) since then.

Here is a list of songs that I never thought I would have heard live:

ByTor and the Snow Dog
2112 (the whole thing)
Entre Nous
Natural Science
The Camera Eye
Digital Man
The Body Electric
Between the Wheels
Grand Designs
Middletown Dreams
The Pass
Where's My Thing

Here are some songs that I thought I would have heard by now:

Fly By Night
Cinderella Man
Jacob's Ladder
The Weapon

Songs that I'm surprised that they play repeatedly:

The Pass
Red Sector A
Force Ten

Before they quit, I hope to hear Vapor Trails live...probably too depressing for Neil to play nightly, though

And so, did the participant(s) get the answer right, or not?
#3 - Posted 5/6/14 @12:57PM by CraigJ [contact]

I read that as space invaders and answered "What is Atari?"

I guess if Rush references are showing up on Jeopardy, they have truly arrived. Glad to see the boys getting some well-deserved respect.

I'm in bed when this comes on.
