The members of Barenaked Ladies played their first Mountain Stage show in 1992, when the Canadian band was still relatively unknown in America. Since the beginning, the group has been known for its clever lyrics, infectious hooks, sweet vocal harmonies and witty sense of humor, which often pokes fun at the pop world it inhabits. Barenaked Ladies' membership has shifted a bit over the years. The lineup you'll hear during this set — recorded on Jan. 19, 1995 — consists of Ed Robertson and Steven Page, who started the band, along with Tyler Stewart and Andy and Jim Creeggan. The band released Maybe You Should Drive not long before this visit, and by the end of the '90s reached the peak of its popularity with Stunt and its smash single "One Week."
