The Ohio State Marching Band took the field for their halftime show on Saturday, and performed a halftime show in honor of rock legend, Rush.

Performing some of Rush's biggest hits, like "Tom Sawyer," "Limelight," "Fly By Night," and more. To sweeten the deal, and to capture Neil Peart's "sonic impact," the band added 20 toms and cymbals to the field.

Ohio State's performance of the songs wasn't the only great part of the show. When the band took the field, their formations included "2112" and "YYZ" as well as motorcycle and even a three-piece stick figure band.

The band took to Twitter to share video of the halftime show as soon as it was up.

"We're speechless," Rush wrote.

Ohio State is known for their great halftime performances.

One of my personal favorites was from a few years ago, their show titled "Hollywood Blockbusters."

The band featured the themes from some of the most popular movies to hit the box office, like Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, Pirates of the Caribbean, Lord of the Rings, and Superman.

Their formations included Superman pushing a falling building back upright, as well as a T-Rex.

The band continues to make headlines almost annually for their top tier marching.
