Barenaked Ladies: DoTM

The Barenaked Ladies (BNL) are a band that formed in 1988 in Scarborough, Ontario (a town outside Toronto, Canada).

I am not necessarily a giant fan of their work and only really started listening to a few of their songs because they wrote and perform the theme song to the show Big Bang Theory, which I only recently started watching.

Here are some websites:
