Forming the Barenaked ladies

We all know the band well and now we know how the band broke up, but how many of you know how and where the band formed. Well, the Barenaked Ladies started as a duo of just Ed and Steven. The two were friends in school and reunited later in life. As they become closer, they realized they both shared a love for the same type of music and began playing together.

After playing as a duo for a short time, the band began playing with the other members who were soon to join together as ‘the Barenaked Ladies’. They were only playing for fun, as they all shared a love for music, and never expected to be a well-known band, as they became.

The band first released their demo commercial in 1991 called ‘The Yellow Tape’. After the release of their demo, many quickly became fans of their music and awaited the release of their first album. When their album was finally released, 3 of their songs became well-known hits that were often heard on the radio and buzzing through teen headphones. These songs were ‘the old apartment, pinch me and one week’. Throughout the bands short life, these continued to be the favorite among fans.

The band even made the billboard top 100 while they were in their prime. Many of their fans were saddened to hear the band was breaking up, but still continued to listen to their tracks. Even to this day, the Barenaked ladies can still be heard by old fans.
