And yet, the Tragically Hip have never really managed to break through south of the 49th Parallel. The band sells out enormous hockey arenas in Manitoba, but has trouble filling a person club in Washington, DC. Until recently, that is. Their final show, in their hometown of Kingston, Ontario, was livecast around the world, and finally — finally! If an entire nation, including its respected prime minister, show up or tune in for a rock concert, there must be something to it.

Yes, the Tragically Hip toured through the United States, Europe and Australia And even a one-off show in the Cayman Islands to celebrate what looked to be the 25 th anniversary of a liquor store? Long Time Running is a rare glimpse behind the curtain of a band of childhood friends that always eschewed the spotlight, preferring to let their songs represent them. And with good reason: Canadians never explicitly got behind the band because they triumphed over the rest of the world in the way say, a Sidney Crosby or Lester B. Pearson did. They did so because in a world in which it is often become difficult for Canadians to forge an identity, these songs were the terribly literate and insightful inside jokes that only we could share, a language we used to spark connections with other Canadians we hardly know in a country of titanic proportions that connections between us can sometimes feel tenuous. National identities often are forged in ways we least expect, and generations from now, the songs of the Tragically Hip may be one of the few things that Canadians can still share.

The concert will be televised and live streamed, following a national outcry after the tour sold out in minutes, and Trudeau will be among the attendees. Canada will get to say goodbye to its most treasured band, fronted by a poet who made a country proud, patriotic and fiercely grateful for the music. As a tribute to the group, we look back at 10 songs that define the Tragically Hip. In the months after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, a number of Canadian radio stations temporarily stopped playing the song out of respect for the victims. The album Road Apples continued to build on the band's bluesy sound. In a interview with The Georgia Straight , guitarist Rob Baker shared how the album got its name.
