    They played at a concert in Canada on Canada Day

    </font><blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr />
    U.S. band Cake, the one wild-card entry on this year's bill, went over like a lead balloon when they dared to try their offbeat funk-pop and some dry humour on the audience: They left the stage under a hail of plastic bottles after two-and-a-half songs.

    In fact, it was going badly for Cake from the get-go.

    It didn't help when lead singer John McRae started taunting the crowd with comments about the U.S. invading Canada for the water, among other things.

    Sarcasm apparently doesn't fly on Canada Day.

    The "if we get hit by a bottle we walk" gauntlet was thrown down, and the members of the audience obliged.

    Cake's trumpet player griped aloud about the "F---ing Children Of The Corn motherf---ers," a bottle hit the bass drum, and they were gone.

    Judging from the welt National Post photographer Carlo Allegri was sporting on the back of his head after being hit, Cake made the right choice.

    hey mj. they are in canada because we ran them out of the us. i guess they have to go to mexico now. they just played here a few months ago and got boo-ed off stage. they played one song then started making fun of everyone. then people started throwing stuff at them, then the cops came out and the band left. they music isnt bad but thier lead singer really seams to enjoy making an ass out of himself. they used to be pretty popular but people got so sick of them that noone would go see them or buy thier albums anymore. they just walk out on stage and explain that [wherever they are] sucks, and only losers, rednecks and fags live there.

    chevyfumes ---ive seen them a couple times. both times they were at different venues and managed to get stuff thrown at them by both crowds. they are not very good at making people like them and want to buy thier music.
