Known for their energetic style, New York Times pop critic Jon Pareles once described their performances as “It’s not easy to be hyperactive, brooding and whimsical all at once ... but the Barenaked ladies do just that”. Their music has been a near constant presence on the radio, with hits throughout their lengthy career, such as “If I had a Million Dollars”, “Pinch Me”, “One Week” and “Big Bang”. The Barenaked Ladies have been together for nearly 30 years, and have produced 14 studio albums, which have collectively sold more than 14 million copies. Among their awards are 8 Junos, which include Group of the Year in 1993; Children’s Album of the Year in 2009 for Snack Time!; Best Pop Album and Best Group, both in 2001; and an impressive triple win in 1999 for Best Group, Best Pop Album and Best Single. They have earned multiple Grammy nominations, and a US chart topping single with “One Week”, as well as the theme song for one of television’s most popular shows, The Big Bang Theory.
