The insert photo of the original release references several older Rush album covers, like the fire hydrant from "Signals" or the TVs from "Power Windows".
A smaller part of this image was used as the cover for the "Prime Mover" single.
Rush had only written nine songs before going into the studio to record "Hold Your Fire", but the producer insisted they had to have ten on the album, so he "forced" them to write a "ten", which became "Force Ten".
