The Tragically Hip Are Streets Ahead

The Tragically Hip are something of a Canadian institution, having spent the last thirty years cementing their place as one of the premier Canadian rock groups. Their music is some of the best you'll find, from any period, and if you catch them live, there is an excellent chance lead singer, Gord Downie, will just start going on about whales for an extended period of time.

Community is a ridicouslously funny comedy on NBC, which the network hates the living bejesus out of, having fired the creator and moved it to the Friday night death slot for their upcoming fourth season.

What do these two things have in common? On the surface, nothing. But the Hip realese their new album, Now For Plan A, on October 2nd, and have released their new single in anticipation of the release. The single's name?

Streets Ahead.

Until I have confirmation that this wasn't intentional, I'm going to assume that at least one of the band mates is a Community fan. And my respect for the band just increased.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
