Being that I'm an avid fan of the group, it frustrates me to no end when people refer to them simply as a "Canadian geek humor band
", because they are so infinitely much more than that. They are crazy amounts of talented, and the only songs that are really "geek humor-ish
" are the ones that got a lot of air time, like "One Week
" and "If I Had $1000000
". I mean, damn
, so what if they make light of some things, add a bit of humor into their music.. that doesn't mean that's *all
* they are. And can we get a big EXCUSE ME
for the radio stations in the United States
who said they were a NEW group when "One Week
" came out.. ahem.
These guys have been around and even popular here in Canada
since, well, a very long time
! Ignorance bothers me
Let me introduce you to some of the dreamiest, best songs by this group that you've probably never heard:
That just scratches the surface.. they've got some pretty amazing lyrical content
and the music is very impressive. Oh, and they've a new album coming out soon I believe, it will be called "Maroon
", I think.
I'm passionate about my plant life, but I'm probably even more passionate about my music.
