After nearly 25 years in the music business, The Tragically Hip continues to thrive, thanks in part to its vigorous and often improvisational live shows. Still, the band has remained on the relative outskirts of the U.S. music scene, despite rising to rock immortality in its native Canada.

After 1989's Up To Here, The Tragically Hip couldn't find an arena in Canada big enough to hold it, selling out shows while attracting a raucous army of fans. The band has released 10 full-length albums of bare-bones rock 'n' roll, as well as the 2005 box set Hipeponymous, which arrived on the heels of The Tragically Hip's induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. Its newest studio disc is last year's World Container.
