Nickelback for one of 3 reasons: 1) They're the only western Canadian band (the rest are out of Ontario or Quebec)

2) They suck

3) They're really sucky

Could also be Alanis because she's the only actor in this group (not cameo, but films) also she produces now that she stopped making albums (she's my age... kinda had a crush)

So it wasn't the suck-factor then? Interesting... :grin:

You were saying Rembrandts & Wil Smith gave away my oddball, funny because yours only occurred to me when you said it was a song. I knew Metallica, U2 & Three Dog Night all had songs "One". You also said that BG's weren't odd so it confirmed my final answer.

Some thinking time required... nearly bedtime but I'll try post it tonight.

You are so close, Brad... not quite what I was looking for, but because you have the right band and the right songs from the other artists (most of which sang about different towns, cities) I'll give it to ya. The song from C,S,N & Y is usually only credited to Mr. Neil Young himself, but it was performed with that ensemble.

I was thinking of the song "Ohio" which is why CSNY would be the odd ones out. Didn't think it would be that hard, what with Google and all :grin:

Go ahead Brad! :thumbsup:
