Classic Rock Meets Classic Cartoons

We’ve been enjoying this series of Peanuts Gang covers by YouTube user Garren Lazar. Over the years, he’s created parodies for several classic rock tunes like Bohemian Rhapsody, Don’t Stop Believin’, Stayin’ Alive, and Free Bird to name a few. More recently, Peanuts Gang took on an unreleased Rush track – “Garden Road”.

One of Rush’s earlier songs, they played it at their concerts but it has never been officially released. According to Martin Popoff on Contents Under Pressure: 30 Years of Rush at Home and Away (via Rush Vault), “‘Garden Road’ and ‘Fancy Dancer’ . . . never made the grade. ‘Yeah, they were sort of riffy songs,’ says Alex, ‘very repetitive, mostly 12-bar sorts of things. They wouldn’t have survived the test of time, I don’t think.’”

In a Modern Guitar interview with Skip Daly in 2008, Lifeson revealed: “I was cleaning up the back room…I’ve gotten rid of a bunch of stuff over the years…and I just found a case that was way up on the top shelf, and at the bottom of this box were a bunch of reel-to-reel, unlisted, unmarked, recordings…and I can only imagine that they’re pre-’74. So, they would probably be from between ’70 and ’73…recordings from that period. So, they would probably have songs like ‘Run Willie Run’ and ‘Slaughterhouse’ and ‘Garden Road’, and all of those early songs that we wrote and played during our bar days.”
