Yeah, if I was a member of Barenaked Ladies I, too, would probably snort a mountain of cocaine every night to escape the fact that I was in one of the world’s shittiest bands. Ex-BNL frontman Steven Page likely called the cops on himself during that 2008 drug bust in order to expedite his departure from the quintet, knowing that getting the Barenaked boot could only improve his standing in the universe. And so BNL continues with The Four Other Guys, but really, there’s no difference: If you’re already born without testicles, what does it matter if your cock gets lopped off? What’s that, you say? Remaining singer-guitarist Ed “Ironic White Rapper” Robertson actually wrote the band’s most popular tune? Yes indeed, he’s responsible for “One Week”—a creation so noxious and horrifying that if Truman had it at his disposal back in ’45, the A-bomb wouldn’t have been necessary. BNL will unleash that dreadful song, and others, tonight, and if you make yourself a willing target, well, God help you.
