Surprised to not see any mention of The Tragically Hip. Back in high school & after they seemed to the band the jocks & “cool” kids liked. I never really got into them either, even after seeing them live. Gordie did have moments of good writing.
They never caught on in the states because after they got a push down here with Road apples, which was even more awful than the title suggested, nobody wanted anything to do with them. I remember some critics loving it, but they were wrong, and even though they got better, we got sold the barenaked ladies instead.
I will alway be angry that Weezer got the label push that Sloan should have had, because Weezer is terrible and Sloan are giants among giants. And I still hate the hip, just because road apples is one of the worst things I've ever heard in my life, even worse than mortar strikes getting progressively closer to my position. Yeah.
I'd rather be killed instantly than listen to that album again.
