I'm not the biggest Barenaked Ladies fan in the world, but even I have recognized that their impact on music is nothing to scoff at. We in the States may only know them as the band that sings about "Chickety-China, the Chinese Chicken" on their hit "One Week," or the band that "just made you say underwear" in their song "Pinch Me," but in their native Canada, the Barenaked Ladies have sold tens of millions of records, and just earned a slot in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.

And so, this past weekend, the band was inducted at the annual JUNO awards in Canada. They reunited with their former bandmate Steven Page, who left the group in 2009 to pursue his own solo career, amid a drug arrest in upstate New York (of which, charges were eventually dropped). He had been estranged from the band ever since, but the reunion was immediately put into the works when it was revealed that the Barenaked Ladies would be getting inducted. Lo and behold, their performance did not disappoint. See it below!
