@goreds2 I found this bit of trivia about BNL amusing (in orange):

Their rise to success began when songs from their demo tapes like “If I Had $1,000,000” and “Brian Wilson” began to receive radio play. Then an impromptu performance of “Be My Yoko Ono” inside Toronto’s Speaker’s Corner video booth aired on both CityTV and MuchMusic. However, it was when Toronto city officials decided BNL’s name was too offensive for their New Years Eve performance that they got massive national exposure, including the cover of The Toronto Star and mentions on national TV news outlets. Their self-released Yellow Tape sold 18,000 over the next month and would go on to be the first independent release to achieve platinum status (100,000 copies sold) in Canada.

The mayor was mocked for that but it did make their career.
