“Ahead By A Century,” from 1996’s Trouble at the Henhouse is purportedly The Hip’s most covered song, which kinda makes sense, given that the track is also their highest-charting single (and their only #1—in Canada or elsewhere).


Hey Rosetta!, a seven-piece indie act from Newfoundland and Labrador, headlined the CBC music festival at Echo Beach in Toronto back in May, not long after Gord Downie’s news of his cancer diagnosis. Towards the end of their set, the band played a rousing, faithful version of the song, with frontman Tim Baker offering “This one’s for Gord.”
