UPDATE - 5/6@10:10AM: NOTE: the actual category was Rock Band Idioms (thanks AmbienBarry).

There was yet another Rush reference on the popular American quiz show Jeopardy! this evening. The category was Rock Bands where you had to name the band that finished the given quote, and where some of the band members were listed. For the $1000 clue, the quote was "Adrenaline..." and the names Geddy Lee and Neil Peart were listed as seen here. As recently noted in this article from WRDU's Dave Besnar celebrating the show's 53rd birthday back on March 30th, Jeopardy! seems to have a love affair with Rush, and have used the band in several clues over the last decade. Thanks to Nancy M and Joe S for the heads up.
