Enough YYZ to make your ears explode (or make you wish they did)

I was surfing TotalFark, looking for mentions of North Korea's latest attempt to piss on the leg of the rest of the world, when I found this video of a (joke) high school band covering Rush's YYZ, but with a Baritone Sax.

Which then led to Rush appearing on stage at a Foo Fighter's concert to jam out with them on YYZ in Toronto (which, oddly enough, is the city marked YYZ for shipping and airlines):
