This geeklist is inspired by the I am Canadian geeklist (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/44377) and by an over-bearing urge to procrastinate.

The Arrogant Worms are a Canadian singing comedy trio from Edmonton.
Many of their songs are a patriotic/satirical look at Canada and its relations.
Others are just humourous.

Included in the list are some of my favourites.
If you know them, then feel free to add your own.

I Am Not American

This video is a homemade tribute (not by me), but I think they did an excellent job.

"I want to be as American as the French are European."

Jesus' Brother Bob

This is the first Arrogant Worm's song I ever heard. Some say it is borderline sacrilege, but I actually find it somewhat reverent.

The group normally doesn't preform with an Orchestra but did so to record a live DVD.

Edit: YouTube link dead.

Proud to be Canadian

An enjoyable song, but very dated from the mid 90s.

Carrot Juice is Murder

The second song I ever heard from AW and a crazy, old music video.

The Toronto Song

My favourite song that gets wrongful attributed to the Arrogant Worms.

Thanks smcneil for clearing up my misconception.
