By my calculations Broken Social Scene now employs 1/3 of the entire population of Canada. In addition to the members you might already know—Kevin Drew, Brendan Canning, Leslie Feist, Emily Haines—the band also features former prime minster Jean Chrétien, hockey legend Mario Lemieux, and that white rapper Snow.

Sure, we all love the Album Leaf, but enough to get a tattoo of their logo? Well, I'd do it, but only if it can go next to my sweet Operation Ivy tat. All I know is that I don't know nothing (about how much I was going to regret this ska band tattoo).
LISTEN:







Album Leaf - "Always For You"

End Hits: At least we didn't post a photo of our Reel Big Fish tattoo.
