Who are Barenaked Ladies?


In a nutshell, and to quote an all-too-often used line: “They’re not bare, they’re not naked, and they’re not ladies”.

They are, in fact, a rock band from Canada who are probably best known for hits such as One Week (chickity china the chinese chicken), If I Had $1,000,000 and the theme song to the Big Bang Theory. On top of that, they have their own ice cream, beer, and took part in an out-of-this-world collaboration…

Delve into the band’s history and you will find there is a lot, lot more to the story, starting way back in 1988…
