Takin' Care of Business

Canada has three national Anthems: O Canada, the Hockey Night in Canada theme music and this DOA covered BTO classic.
Talk - Action = Zero

Man O Man.

That is almost, but not quite, 6.3 times better than Jughead's 'Hockey, Hockey, Hockey'.

How come we haven't heard it yet on Vinyl Tap me wonders?

I've seen DOA live a bunch of times. I remember sneaking into the Commodore Ballroom underage to see them at a benefit show - pro-education and anti-Bill Vanderzalm.

Lead singer joe Keithly's auto-biography 'I Shithead' is a nifty tour of DOAs musical career - which is basically the history of West Coast Canadian punk.

Seen 'em little (Smilin' Buddha), seen 'em big (opening for the Clash, who they essentially slam-trashed with hilarity and mackinaws just like with the suits in the hockey video). Keithly is, indeed a treasure, and a treasure trove, and if I remember correctly his brother is big in the local labour movement.
