Does anyone know any music that has been influenced by Ayn Rand? The only direct influence I could find is canadian band Rush, who have dedicated their 1976 album 2112 'to the genius of Ayn Rand'. If you read their lyrics, you will discover Rand's influence on them. Any other finds?

I'll give you three other examples and another good reference. The first, most explicitly influenced (because it was commissioned as such) is "Concerto of Deliverance" by John Mills-Cockell here.The second is instrumental classical-style music I happen to know comes from a long-time student & advocate of Objectivism. "Preludes & Reflections" can be found & described best on CD Baby but it's also available elsewhere online. (Full disclosure--it's yours truly.) Third is this person who claims to have a large selection of music with an Ayn Rand connection. Finally, I'll point you to a good blogger I follow, The Brakeman, who writes about music (among other things) from an Objectivist perspective. Here's his blog post about the music in the Atlas Shrugged Part I movie (which is not favorable).
