Description

Moxy Früvous was a politically satirical folk-pop band from Thornhill, Ontario, Canada. The band was founded in 1989, and was active throughout the 1990s. Common themes in Früvous songs include Canada and the "human experience".

The name "Moxy Früvous" is a nonsense phrase, although the liner notes of their first CD Bargainville contained a faux-dictionary listing of definitions for früvous. The band was known to never provide a straight answer (and for that matter, almost never the same answer twice) when defining the band's name. However, in an interview with WBER radio in Rochester, New York, on November 23, 1999, Jian explained the band's name origin by saying that they were "trying to think of a name that wasn't easy to remember and doesn't mean anything," satirically going against two conventions most bands might use in determining a band name. The name also includes a heavy metal umlaut, again hinting at the satirical because heavy metal is not a genre most listeners of Moxy Früvous would associate with the group.
