"YYZ" is an instrumental rock piece by Canadian rock band Rush, from their 1981 album Moving Pictures. It is one of the band's most popular pieces and a staple of the band's live performances. It has been featured on all of the band's live albums and video releases since its release. The live album Exit...Stage Left (1981) and the concert video recording A Show of Hands (1989) both include versions in which Neil Peart incorporates a drum solo; as an interlude on the former, and as a segue out of the piece on the latter.
Primus, beginning the performance of "John the Fisherman" heard on the 1989 live album Suck on This and in full during other concerts. The first ten seconds of the 1989 live recording are played at the beginning of "To Defy the Laws of Tradition" on the 1990 studio album Frizzle Fry.
"YYZ" is referenced in the Archer episode "Skin Game." When Sterling Archer first sees Dr. Krieger's new drum kit, he responds by saying "Wow, amazing. You can play 'YYZ'." Krieger first insists that the title is properly pronounced "why-why-zed" (the pronunciation used in Rush's native Canada), before pointing out that it is too difficult for him to play. A similar exchange takes place later in the episode between Krieger and a different character.
