I was a Rush fan for a very long time before I ever knew there was an Ayn Rand. I had no idea why I liked the early Rush music and 2112 in particular. For Rush, the revolutionary device is the Guitar. In Anthem, it's a light bulb. In Atlas Shrugged, it's the motor of the 20th Century Motors Co. If you have 20 minutes to spare, have a look.
