First saw Rush right after 2112 came out. Tickets were about $18.. I remember one of my friends asking who the back-up band was, and another guy answers some band called Van Halen...Firs t guy asks who the heck is Van Halen? Friend #2 answers, oh you know, they got that song Running with the Devil playing on the radio. Point being we had no idea what we were about to see. Had to be about 1978 or so. Note that Rush is a band that never stopped improving. Masters of their instruments!

LOVE THE MUSIC, AND LYRICS. BRILLIANTLY COMPOSED.

This song is one of 3 or 4 that so brilliantly capture the heart and heartaches of a teenage male (at least this one from Clinton Twp., MI.) If I ever get to teach a sociology class, this will be a final exam piece.

Saw them on the Grace Under Pressure tour. I was in High School during Rush's 80s Heyday. Subdivisions was REALLY what high school cliques were like. The video for this song was a snapshot of those times.

Sweet song!

After sifting through the comments, I feel there is little to add. Subdivisions is pure Rush at its best, great live and speaks to almost all of us who ever went to high school.

favorite Rush tune! Youth in the 80's

This is an awesome song by rush!!

Pretty much accurately sums up what growin' up is like, whether in 1982 when this came out, or 31 years later! They opened the current tour with it. And, yep, still the definitive bass tone for me when Ged steps away from the keys to play bass during the chorus.

Amazing song, never gets old. Also a great reference for sociology projects. I suggested it to my daughter when she was in high school (she got a A) and I used a couple of quotes for an organization a l behavior class. Rush is timeless, as time passes their work is still relevant. May Rush keep "endlessly rocking"!

a truly magical song--i can never tire from listening to it

"Nowhere is the dreamer or the misfit so alone..."
I know that I'll never conform to the hip and happening of todays society.

Never.
Long live rock n' roll, and Rush.

Not an extra note played, not a single note missing.

Subdivisions is perfect. A perfectly weighted equation. Something about this song is very symmetrical in my musical mind. I don't listen to this song; I partake in it.

One of my favorite songs from this album. It spoke of the alienation I felt back when it came out, and it still has its relevancy now. And...it rocks!
