"Nobody's Hero" is a song by Canadian prog-rock band Rush, released as the third single from their 1993 album Counterparts.[1] The first stanza deals with the AIDS-related death of a homosexual man named Ellis, a friend of Neil Peart when Peart lived in London. After the chorus, the second stanza speaks of a girl who was murdered in Peart's hometown, Port Dalhousie. The girl is rumoured to have been Kristen French, one of Paul Bernardo's victims.[citation needed]
