Posted in: News, Trivia Q & A | 1 Comment | Posted on by Mary Anne

Q. What famous Canadian band had a hit song whose entire title consisted of only one letter?

A. Crash Test Dummies. “Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm” was released on October 1, 2021 as the lead single from their second album, God Shuffled His Feet. It was very successful all around the world, peaking at number one in Germany, Australia and on the U.S. Modern Rock Tracks chart. It also became a top five hit in both the UK Singles Chart and the all-genre U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

The band is most identifiable through Brad Roberts (vocals, guitar) and his distinctive bass-baritone voice. The band members have fluctuated over the years, but its best known line-up consisted of Roberts, Ellen Reid (co-vocals, keyboards), Brad’s brother Dan Roberts (bass guitar, backing vocals), Benjamin Darvill (harmonica, mandolin), and Mitch Dorge (drums, percussion). The band is best known internationally for their 1993 single “Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm” and best known in Canada for the 1991 single Superman’s Song.
After a multi-year hiatus, the band returned in 2015 with a tour and the new charity single “Promised Land” which was a collaboration with Marc Mysterio following up his remix of “Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm”.
