I love the Weakerthans - ever since John broke off from Propagandhi. I think many a person who was a fan of Propagandhi in the late 90's sort of discovered the Weakerthans just by word of mouth.... then The Weakerthans starting popping up in movie credits, TV shows, etc... and they just exploded from there.
