On July 14, 1789, revolutionaries in France stormed the Bastille political prison and launched the French Revolution, an event commemorated as Bastille Day. On this riotous 1975 romp, which was written by Rush's Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson, with lyrics by Neil Peart, the Canadian prog masterminds pull out all the stops for a histrionic four and a half minutes of riffage that salutes the toppling of the rich status quo by the oppressed. "But they're marching to Bastille Day / The guillotine will claim her bloody prize / Free the dungeons of the innocent / The king will kneel and let his kingdom rise," shrieks Geddy Lee over crackling, lightning-quick guitars. "Bastille Day" was featured as the opening track on the band's third album, Caress of Steel, which was released in 1975 and marked a shift away from the bluesy backbone of hard rock and towards the whistles and bells of prog-rock.
