Ohio Metal Band Skeletonwitch call Barenaked Ladies an insult to Canada

barenaked ladiesOhio Metal Band Skeletonwitch were the focus of some negative attention this week as bassist Evan Linger was part of an interview for The Onion AV Club column “Hate Song” where he stated that the Barenaked Ladies song “One Week” is his least favourite song.  You can read the full interview here. Comments on the article indicate that the Barenaked Ladies appear to be the crowd favourite amongst the two bands, with one reader commenting that the Barenaked Ladies are quadruple platinum which is in clear contrast to the fact that only about twelve people have ever heard of Skeletonwitch.

The story got a bit more entertaining as the Barenaked Ladies fired off some funny posts to Skeletonwitch on Twitter. The twitter conversation between the two bands went something like this:
