Amuzenet posted this article the other day… just goes to show, you can Never trust a Canadian…

The Barenaked Ladies Fool Napster Users
Canadian band The Barenaked Ladies have found the perfect way to both make a statement about file sharing and promote their next release. In other words, beat Napster at its own game. Dotmusic.com reports that the group released personal messages disguised as songs from their new release entitled Maroon. Napster users attempting to download a new Barenaked Ladies song will find messages such as, “Although you thought you were downloading our new single, what you actually were downloading is an advertisement for the new album,” and “We fooled you, huh? We’re sneaky like that. You can never trust a Canadian.” According to dotmusic.com, these messages from singer Steven Page and drummer Tyler Stewart are both a musical statement and a promotional move for the new album.
