WATCH | Barenaked Ladies on their Iconic Band Name

May 01, 2020

Learn about “the smartest thing” the Barenaked Ladies ever did when they chose their now-iconic band name.

The band visited Studio Bell in 2018 in celebration of their induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. “It’s still hard to get our heads around,” said Ed Robertson during their Hall of Fame plaque ceremony. “We’re the band that makes fun of the bands in the Hall of Fame.”

Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre, is home to four Canadian music halls of fame, including the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame Collection, and the ADISQ Hall of Fame.
