Barenaked Ladies

Barenaked Ladies



Barenaked Ladies (often abbreviated BNL or occasionally BnL) is a Canadian rock band. The band is composed of Jim Creeggan, Kevin Hearn, Ed Robertson and Tyler Stewart. Barenaked Ladies formed in 1988 in Scarborough, Ontario (now incorporated into the City of Toronto), as a duo of Robertson and Steven Page.[1] Brothers Jim and Andy Creeggan joined at the end of 1989, and Stewart was added in 1990 while Andy was on hiatus from the group. Andy departed permanently in 1995 citing musical differences and was replaced by Hearn. Page left in 2009, reducing the group to a quartet.

Upon forming, the band quickly developed a cult following in their native Canada culminating in their self-titled 1991 cassette becoming the first independent release ever to be certified gold in Canada. The band then received a major record deal with Reprise Records. Its label debut, Gordon, was released in 1992.

The band's style has evolved greatly throughout its career, and its music which began as exclusively acoustic quickly grew to encompass a mixture of a wide array of styles including pop, rock, hip hop, rap, etc. They are most commonly billed as an "alt rock" band. The band's cult following translated into immediate success with Gordon in Canada with a number of popular singles including "If I Had $1000000" and "Brian Wilson", but it was not until the band's 1996 live album, Rock Spectacle and its 1998 fourth studio album, Stunt that they finally achieved major success in the United States and United Kingdom.[2] The lead single from Stunt, "One Week" remains the band's most successful single. Other well-known singles include Stunt's second, "It's All Been Done", and the lead single from the follow-up album Maroon, "Pinch Me".

The band is known for their live performances, highlighted by comedic banter and free-style rapping between songs.[3] They have won multiple Juno Awards and have been nominated for Grammy Awards. The group has sold over 15 million records including albums and singles, and will be inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in March of 2018.
