Who think they're American and say that against them, even though they're not. I overhear them talking shit about them then talking shit about Americans. Which is fine, expected even, but don't bring Nickelback into it FFS.
And think they're cool and think that they're American and like it but then I have to tell them 'You know they're Canadian, right?' and they're surprised and I'm informative to them. Either way I'm dealing with morons.

actually my friend's blog will probably come in quite useful on this thread....
Strapping Young Lad
Friends of Fiddlers Green
Broken Social Scene ETC.
The top of my head knows some bad things...
not technically a band, but whatever
none of the others were any where near as good for use in a game of hangman.
I noticed that on the spotify, not sure of I listened to any others. Probably not. Are we actually discussing crash test dummies?
and although GSHF has more arresting moments, A Worm's Life is ridden with homespun charm - it's amazing to think it came AFTER GSHF - it's so much more stripped-back, lo-fi and not-of-its-time. And the last four tracks are exquisite - give the first three and last four a spin if you want a curtailed overview. "An Old Scab" is probably the best thing they ever did.
