Barenaked Ladies

Barenaked Ladies are an alternative rock band formed in Scarborough in 1988 who have taken the world by storm, selling over 15 million records including albums and singles during their storied career. Perhaps best known for their hit songs If I Had a $1000000, Pinch Me, One Week, Brian Wilson and The Old Apartment, they also wrote and perform the theme song for the hit TV series The Big Bang Theory. The band is famous for their improvisational performance style and live shows that feature light-hearted banter between songs and they regularly perform sold out shows across North America.

Barenaked Ladies have been nominated for eighteen Juno awards and have won eight. They’ve been nominated for two Grammy awards, one MTV award and the band has won two Billboard Awards, four MuchMusic Video Awards and one World Music award.

Filmed in and around Scarborough, their video Lovers In a Dangerous Time won MuchMusic’s Video FACT Award and People’s Choice Award.

In February 2013, The Ladies collaborated in a ‘Space Jam’ with Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield. I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing?) is the first song composed and recorded in space, the result of collaboration between International Space Station Commander Chris Hadfield and Ed Robertson. Together with the band and Scarborough’s Wexford Gleeks choir, they recorded the song using a live connection between the International Space Station and CBC Music's studio in Toronto.
