Barenaked Ladies

Barenaked Ladies (or often just BNL) is a Canadian alternative rock band composed of Kevin Hearn, Ed Robertson, Steven Page, Tyler Stewart and Jim Creeggan. They formed in 1989 in Scarborough, Ontario[?], a suburb of Toronto.

Their first release of note was the 1991 independent "Yellow Tape" which was the only indie release to achieve platinum status in Canada. They made two tapes before this, "Buck Naked" in 1989 with just Ed and Steve, then "Barenaked Lunch" (also known as the "Pink Tape[?]") in 1990.

Their most successful single was "One Week", off their album "Stunt[?]" (1998). "Stunt" brought BNL recognition in the United States. "Maroon[?]", their next album, also did well in stores, led by the single "Pinch Me". While these may be famous from popular radio, lesser-known singles are loved by fans. These include "If I Had a Million Dollars," (which was known for the lyrics being improvised, and spawned a macaroni-throwing tradition), "When I Fall," "Brian Wilson," (Named after the Beach Boy). The list goes on and on.

Their latest release is a compilation album, entitled "Disc One: All Their Greatest Hits [1991-2001]".
