Imagine Dragons Perform Rush's 'Tom Sawyer'

(Radio.com) In a recent interview with Radio.com, Imagine Dragons stuttered a bit when asked if they were a "rock" band or not. Some guys in the band said yes, others hedged their words. However, the band did show they could rock by covering Rush.

"It's just an intimidating song," frontman Dan Reynolds told Rolling Stone of the 1981 classic rock radio staple. "It's so cool, because I found this whole new register. I've been taking additional voice lessons and figuring out how to tune into my upper range more. The band loves prog, so it's kind of their dream."

All those years playing as a club band on the Las Vegas strip totally pays off, and drummer Daniel Platzman absolutely nails Neil Peart's historical drum solo.
