Rush – Roll The Bones


Roll the Bones is the title track second single from Rush's 1991 album of the same name. The music of "Roll the Bones" was written by Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson, and its lyrics by Neil Peart. The lyrics reflect on taking chances in life, and urging those unsure to "roll the bones," a term used for dice. Additionally, the song has strong secular and evolutionary themes. The album won the 1992 Juno Award for best album cover design. Roll the Bones became Rush's first US Top 5 album since 1981's Moving Pictures, peaking at #3 on the Billboard 200. It also achieved an RIAA certification of platinum, the latest Rush album to date to do so. The album was remastered and re-released in 2004 as part of the Atlantic Records "Rush Remasters" series, and in 2011, once again remastered (by Kevin Gray) and re-released by Audio Fidelity as a gold CD. In 2013, it was remastered and re-released yet again this time as part of the box set The Studio Albums 1989-2007.
