The Infinonytunes selection associated with the Rand Paul post is Rush's "Freewill," a literate rock 'n' roll treatment of libertarianism (and a damned fine tune).
Behind Geddy Lee (bass, vocals) on Rush's stage is what appears to be -- and is -- a laundromat. Lee plays directly through the venue PA system (with a few pedals); to balance the stage presentation (and mock guitarist Alex Lifeson's massive amplifier installation), Lee often arranges coin-operated Maytag washers and dryers behind him. Lee says the appliances sometimes clean and dry the touring personnel's clothes during a performance; watch closely. After some shows, Lee pulls t-shirts out of the dryer and throws them to the audience.
Lee reportedly grilled chickens (giant rotisseries) onstage during at least one show.
