To celebrate their impending reunion, in honour of their induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, we thought it would be beneficial to examine the long, strange and supremely goofy career and legacy of Canada's favourite band of joke-rockers, The Barenaked Ladies. We count down what we believe to be their 10 most enduring songs and ask important questions about the band's status as Canadian Music Hall of Famers. Questions asked, but barely answered include: Do the Barenaked Ladies have any good songs? What was up with Jim Creeggan’s tam? Is Ed Robertson one of Canada's best known rappers? Why did we do this to ourselves? And more.
We did it. We recorded another. This time, we decided to do the one thing lazier than recounting our favourite records from a year past—looking ahead at what the year in music brings. Mac and Geoff discuss the surprise Daniel Romano albums Nerveless and Human Touch, Booji Boys Weekend Rocker, Thee Silver Mount Zion Memorial Orchestra album Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light on Everything, Joni Mitchell’s mid-70s output, their matching Newfoundland Tourist T-Shirts, Jim makes a guest appearance to talk about Young Galaxy’s forthcoming album Down Time, and Mac and Geoff talk about the upcoming Ought, US Girls, Frigs, Preoccupations, Un Blonde and Suuns albums.
