I doubt they will get in on their first year eligible (or first nomination), but eventually--sometime after Rush--the Hall should find room for these guys.

I dunno. I love the group personally, but I don't think they'll get inducted.

Barenaked Ladies are a joke
Posted by Alfonso on Saturday, 10.11.08 @ 13:56pm
Well, Gitarzan, I think Crippen has a point. Barenaked Ladies do indeed suck. Although Crippen’s comments are overly crude he definitely brought up a good point. TZN said in his post “Barenaked Ladies is the reason why modern Canadian music sucks.” Those words couldn’t be more true. Back in the 60’s and 70’s and even the 80’s, Canada had music like Neil Young, The Guess Who, Rush, Streetheart, Harlequin, Trooper, The Band, Triumph, Max Webster, Chilliwack, 54-40, Prism, April Wine, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Five Man Electrical Band, Loverboy, Payolas, etc, music that was in fact, world class. Look at Canadian music today, it’s a joke: Barenaked Ladies? Faber Drive? Alanis Morisette? Hedley? Nickelback? All joke “Bands.” I put the blame on this for Barenaked Ladies.

Blueby...I'm not crazy about them either, but I do much prefer your approach to the reasoning. If someone doesn't like an artist/group then give a viable reason why...you at least did that. Crippen just spewed a bunch of counter productive useless nonsense that basically makes him lower than the band he dislikes.
Posted by Gitarzan on Sunday, 10.12.08 @ 10:14am
True. I guess Crippen will learn something about making a good argument in about 3 years when he takes Grade 10 English. (Come to think of it, judging by Barenaked Ladies' lyrics I would think they never got past Grade 10 English)
Posted by Blueby on Sunday, 10.12.08 @ 10:29am
Blueby...no argument there...LOL!!!!
Posted by Gitarzan on Sunday, 10.12.08 @ 10:33am
WOW! I can't believe it! What an outrage. hff. Geez Crippen... so unintilectual of you! Grade 10 man! How dare you not even have anything to back up what you say. This is an outrage...... wildly entertaining guys. oops or are you actually serious??? put it on a big scale. Who's worse? Nickleback, Dashboard, Barenaked Ladies, or THEIR FANS!

Honestly, I'm a big fan of the Barenaked Ladies. I find their lyrics and melodies to be creative and different from the norm. They have an on-stage comic personality like to other, and they also have the talent to switch instruments between songs and perform flawlessly. They have a unique spirit and charm that shines through their on-stage impovising and their playful lyrics. For those reasons, they make for a great concert.

Sorry, everyone. Let me make some corrections there:

I like Blueby's comment regarding how Canadian music was much better in the "classic" era than it is now. Don't know if
Posted by Keebord on Tuesday, 06.9.09 @ 17:15pm
This "group" is like an inside joke that nobody will let me in on

BARENAKED LADIES LIED TO ME, I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO GO SEE A BARENAKED LADY CONCERT BUT THEY WERE REALLY MEN AND THEY WEREN'T EVEN NAKED
Posted by OKTOBERFEST on Saturday, 12.12.09 @ 15:35pm
I like some of their stuff (they actually do write some serious stuff) but absolutely not worthy of the Hall.

Speaking as a Canadian, the BNL's never surpassed the promise of their first album, and, more or less, suck.
Posted by Chalkie on Saturday, 08.13.11 @ 18:35pm
"Sloan: Sorry, but no. They may be a good band but so are hundreds upon hundreds of other bands who'll never get in."
Posted by Chalkie on Saturday, 08.13.11 @ 18:38pm
I'm much more inclined to believe that the pre-2009 BNL belongs in the Hall than does the post-2009 BNL. I'm just wondering how you got 2014. I don't think they'll even be considered until 2017, given that their major-label and US debut was 2002.
Posted by Swan on Tuesday, 09.27.11 @ 18:22pm
I must admit I knew about them through "The Big Bang Theory", so I can tell much until I listen more.

If you think the RNRHF is a joke, then yes, they should be inducted immediately. The Barenaked Ladies are the most annoying, cloying, cutesy, douchebagiest band in recorded music history. I would rather listen to Alvin and the Chipmunks. I would rather listen to Fran Drescher on speed singing the best of Eminem. Why don't they just be honest and call themselves "Aren't we just the cutest thing ever?" If you ever hear of a madman running amok in Owen Sound, Ontario you can just assume, "oh well, Dan must have heard "If I Had a Million Dollars" one too many times"
