Yet another Rush reference on tonight's episode of Jeopardy!

UPDATE - 6/7@4:18PM: Note that the question was worth $1200 and none of the three contestants even attempted to answer.

There was yet another (there was just one back in April, and numerous others in recent years) Rush reference on the popular American quiz show Jeopardy! this evening. The category was Song/Book where the idea was to identify the name of a work that was both a song by the given band and a book by the given author. In this case the band was Rush and the author Mark Twain, so the question was, What is Tom Sawyer?. 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 Matthew J for the heads up.
