The Tragically Hip are often viewed as the quintessential Canadian band. The tone and content of much of their music is a paean to the Canadian experience and touches on such themes as small-town life, geography, and hockey. In 2003, The Tragically Hip performed a cover of "Black Day in July" on Beautiful: A Tribute to Gordon Lightfoot, a song about the 1967 12th Street Riot in Detroit. At the Juno awards, they performed a cover of The Weakerthans' "Aside".
The Tragically Hip have a star on the Canadian Walk of Fame and also performed a three-song set at the Live 8 concert in Barrie, Ontario.
On November 1, 2005, they released a Juno Award winning double CD, double DVD box set, Hipeponymous, including all of their music videos to date, a backstage documentary called "Macroscopic", an animated Hip-scored short film entitled "The Right Whale", two brand new songs, a full length concert from November 2004, and a 2-CD greatest hits collection Yer Favourites (selected online by 150,000 fans).
The Tragically Hip's latest album, World Container, was released in 2006 and followed with a cross-Canada tour.
