  11. Holy Fuck!

    Ironically, I never saw the Toronto band name-checked in the title when I lived in that city yet I heard lots about them (and again missed them) when they played a few block away from where I now live in Seattle.

Not good enough for the government of Canada who cites Holy Fuck as a reason for cutting funding to Canadian artists.
