Something For Nothing (3:58)

Cover of 2112

From 2112 and 40 other releases

“Something For Nothing” is the sixth and final song on Rush’s album, 2112.

Neil Peart states: “All those paeans to American restlessness and the American road carried a tinge of wistfulness, an acknowledgment of the hardships of the vagrant life, the notion that wanderlust could be involuntary, exile as much as freedom, and indeed, the understanding that freedom wasn’t free. In the mid-’70s, the band was driving to a show in downtown Los Angeles, at the Shrine Auditorium, and I noticed some graffiti splattered across a wall: ‘Freedom isn’t free,’ and I adapted that for a song on 2112, ‘Something for Nothing’”.
