The Tragically Hip have long inspired musicians and music fans. Now, they are sharing the bands that inspired them.

Entitled “Heavy Rotation”, the band released a statement saying, “Putting this list of songs together was a lot of fun. It brought back so many cool memories of rolling down the road on the bus with my friends. And wherever we were, we usually had music on… and usually cranked. Some of these bands and artists are people we just simply love. And some we are connected to through producers and engineers who we worked with over the years. With others, they were tracks recorded at studios where we also made records. I hope you enjoy this music as much as I have.
