A group of Ontario, Canada high school students decided to form a rock band in 1989 and they dubbed themselves The Rainbow Butt Monkeys. Luckily, after graduation, the five young men matured slightly and changed their band name to Finger Eleven. Since then, the group has honed an alternative post-grunge sound heavily tinged with funk and metal. Finger Eleven quickly rose to prominence in its native Canada, winning the Juno Award for Best Rock Album in 2008, then landing in the Top 10 on the US Rock Charts. The group has had songs featured on multiple television shows and commercials and has recently come off a world tour opening for Kid Rock.
