Fly by Night is the second studio album by the Canadian rock band Rush, released in February 1975 (see 1975 in music). The album was recorded at the Toronto Sound Studios.

This was their first album featuring drummer Neil Peart, who led the band to adopt a different lyrical style, which included different topics including fantasy and science fiction. The tracks "By-Tor & The Snow Dog" and "Rivendell" are good examples of the inclusion of fantasy themes into Rush's music.
