Barenaked Ladies, frequently abbreviated [=BnL=], are a Canadian alternative rock band formed in 1988. When they hit it big, they did it with a quirky style that could convey alternatively humour or heartbreak at will. In doing so, they redefined what Canadian popular music could be that never needed to copy any other culture.

They got their name when founding members Ed Robertson and Steven Page were [[AGoodNameForARockBand discussing names for a band]] during a [[Music/BobDylan concert; when they went to sign up for a music competition shortly thereafter, and realised they needed to come up with a band name ''on the spot'', they panicked and the rest is history.
