The Tragically Hip—often referred to simply as The Hip—formed in 1983. They took their name from a skit in the long-form video Elephant Parts by Michael Nesmith of The Monkees. Nesmith took the phrase from the song "He's So Cool" by Carolyne Mas. In 1987, the band signed a long-term record deal with MCA after former company president Bruce Dickinson saw them perform live at the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto, Ontario.

The Tragically Hip—often referred to simply as The Hip—formed in 1983. They took their name from a skit in the long-form video Elephant Parts by Michael Nesmith of The Monkees. Nesmith took the phrase from the song "He's So Cool" by Carolyne Mas. In 1987, the band signed a long-term record deal with MCA after former company president Bruce Dickinson saw them perform live at the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto, Ontario. Later that year they released the self-titled EP The Tragically Hip, but the band did not achieve success until the release of 1989's Up to Here. In 1993, they created the Another Roadside Attraction festival, which tours Canada to promote Canadian bands. Known for their energetic live performances, the band is noted for their improvisational renditions of songs. Lead singer Downie often strays from the song lyrics to rant to the audience or wander off into fictitious monologues and conversations. Some of these become lyrics for future songs. The most famous live monologue is the "killerwhaletank" version of "New Orleans Is Sinking", recorded at The Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, California, May 3, 1991. During the song, Downie tells the story of how he worked as a diver in a killer whale tank only to have his arm ripped off. This version was released on CD in 1996 as the B-side to "Grace, Too". Other notable monologues include the "Police Frogman" version of "New Orleans Is Sinking" (Downie rescues a family trapped in their car at the bottom of a frozen lake), the "Greek Porter" version of "Highway Girl" (in which Downie has an affair with a female porter on a luxury cruise ship while on an ocean crossing), the "Double Suicide" version of "Highway Girl" (in which Downie "accidentally" shoots his girlfriend) and the "Japanese Exchange Student" version of "At the Hundredth Meridian" (the day before Halloween, Downie accidentally shoots a Japanese student trick or treating). During a cover of the Them hit "Gloria", Gord talks about tying his friend to the railroad tracks and being unable to free him in time to avoid the approaching train. The band is immensely popular in Canada. The band has had three of their songs - "New Orleans is Sinking", "Courage" and "Poets" - chart on Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and one ("Courage") on the Modern Rock Tracks chart . Their most-seen appearance in the United States was on March 25, 1995, when they appeared on Saturday Night Live (performing Grace, Too and Nautical Disaster) with fellow Canadian and friend Dan Aykroyd guest starring, and with John Goodman hosting. In 1999, The Hip were also one of the featured bands at Woodstock '99 held in Rome, New York. When touring in Canada they play to sold-out arenas; when touring in the United States they play smaller venues and clubs, or festivals where they aren't the headliner. Performances abroad are usually attended by Canadian expatriates. The band permit recordings of their performances, so an active trading community thrives. The tone and content of much of their music is a paean to the Canadian experience and touches on such themes as small-town life, geography, Canadian history and ice hockey. The historical, geographical and individual references in many of the lyrics are a source of much internet discussion. The Tragically Hip's live album, Live Between Us, was recorded at Cobo Arena in Detroit, Michigan in 1996 in support of the album Trouble at the Henhouse. The Hip have a small but fervent American following, especially in border states such as Michigan, Vermont and upstate and western New York. Standout tracks from the album include a powerful version of "New Orleans Is Sinking" and a heavily improvised "Grace, Too", in which Downie alternates between muttering asides ("I was born in a little town / I was on my way down") and spitting four-letter lyrics with something close to disgust. In 1998, the band released their seventh full-length album, Phantom Power, which contains such fan-favourite songs as "Poets", "Bobcaygeon", "Fireworks", and "Escape is at Hand for the Travelin' Man". In 1996, they contributed the song "Butts Wigglin" to the soundtrack to the movie Brain Candy. The song originally appeared on Trouble at the Henhouse.
Lyrics Bill Barilko disappeared that summer, he was on a fishing trip. The last goal he ever scored won the Leafs the cup They didn't win another until 1962, the year he was discovered. I stole this from a hockey card, I kept tucked up under my fifty mission cap, I worked it in I worked it in to look like that It's my fifty mission cap his fifty mission cap I worked it in I worked it in I worked it in to look like that and I worked it in to look like that Bill Barilko disappeared that summer ...
Lyrics Sundown in the Paris of the prairies Wheat Kings have all their treasures barried All you hear are the rusty breezes Pushing around the weather vane Jesus In his zippo he you sees the killer's face Maybe it's someone standing in the killers place Twenty Years for nothing well that nothing new Besides no one is interested in something you didn't do Wheat Kings and pretty things, Lets just see what the morning brings There's a dream he dreams where the high school is dead and stark It's ...

Gord Downie's 'Double Suicide' monologue during a performance of Highway Girl. She had a beautiful apartment She had a beautiful apartment Well, actually it was a lousy apartment But sh-she's very handy with her hands And she's got architectural digest magazines So she knows what she's doing She likes to decorate her apartment in the Santa Fé tradition I told her it was dated But I see more of the world than she does She got an apartment where the property was cheap Next to the free way She said "I save lots of money but I lose lots of sleep, in my apartment where the property is so cheap" And We'd Laugh! And We'd Laugh! And We'd Laugh! Ah, and we'd take pop shots at the passing cars *Ping* And We'd Laugh! We were dumping the body and we'd laugh. We found a place that was dark and rotten, a place where the police helicopters would never spot us. I destroyed the map that we'd so carefully plotted. Every day we're dumping a body, she and me Every single day. And we'd laugh about it. That's when I knew it was time that we both killed ourselves together. Together we were nothing but a menace. Apart we were nothing but lonely. I read too much. I thought we should kill ourselves. She doesn't read a thing. She believed me. Are you really the messiah? Yes I am. She was younger than me too, she was younger than me. And I said to her, I said, You know Colline, no one stamps on a burning bag of shit anymore. Nobody! Are you really the messiah? Yes I am. Believe it. So we opted to kill ourselves, as I said, but we had one rifle and one bullet, so I told her to put her head down close to the barrel and put the barrel sort of into her mouth and I'd be right behind it with my head right behind hers and I said her life would end instantly; mine might have a few extra minutes of agony and suffering. She couldn't pull the trigger, so we attached a string to it around the lamp and to the doorknob. The first person to come into her cheap fucking apartment would blow both our heads off. Then we got, we got to thinking; we changed our minds. You know, I mean, we got scared. And, ah, and, and kind of chickened out. And we'd laugh, you know, we'd laugh together. What were we thinking? We're not; together we're not that bad. We're not that bad. We don't need to kill ourselves. We don't need to kill ourselves. And then the D-train rattled overhead and knocked the joor, door ajar, the joor adar, the door ajar, the door ajar, the jar adoor. The lock... the faulty lock, the door swung open. And killed her. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it
