From what I've heard, Barenaked Ladies seem to be pretty well-accepted here, and besides that they're my favourite band (hence the username) so I thought this might be interesting (and sad) news. From the band's official website bnlmusic.com

A MESSAGE FROM BARENAKED LADIES
By mutual agreement, Steven Page will be parting company with the remaining members of Barenaked Ladies. Jim Creeggan, Kevin Hearn, Ed Robertson, and Tyler Stewart will continue recording and touring together as Barenaked Ladies. Steven Page will pursue solo projects including theatrical opportunities while the band enters the studio in April 2009, and hits the road in the fall.

Page says "These guys are my brothers. We've grown up together over the past twenty years. I love them and wish them all the best in the future."

The band also wish Steven well in all of his endeavors. Ed Robertson says: "It's the start of a new chapter for all of us. Here's to the future!"

Everyone is looking forward to making new music and thanks their fans for their support.


Boo
It's the perfect time of year somewhere far away from here.

If I had a million dollars,
I'd buy you a fur coat.
Not a real fur coat. That's cruel.
If I had a million dollars,
I'd buy you a green dress.
Not a real green dress. That's cruel.

Hope they don't suck without him.

Yes, they may have released 11 albums... But have they released 11 albums with commercial hits, besides that one with One Week on it?

EDIT: Correction, one hit wonders in AMERICA
