Grace Under Pressure is the tenth studio album by Canadian rock band Rush, released in 1984. It reached #10 on the Billboard 200 chart and went platinum in the US upon its initial release. On the back cover is a band portrait by the photographer Yousuf Karsh. The original vinyl pressing also featured a photo depicting an egg being held in a C-clamp. The cover art was painted by Hugh Syme, a collaborator with Rush since he performed as a guest musician on the song "Tears" from the album 2112. Alex Lifeson once described Grace Under Pressure as the "most satisfying of all our records.
