And even though they haven’t really done much to contribute to the genre, they do what they do well, which secured them a Juno Award for best new group in 2003 and got them eight Top 10 hits on the US Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, including three No. 1 hits – “Bad Girlfriend,” “Lowlife” and “Rx (Medicate).”
