It's been an amazing week for the Sheepdogs. The boogie rockers from Saskatoon won the Choose the Cover contest, appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone, signed a contract with Atlantic Records, appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and were feted at a star-studded event at Manhattan's Empire Hotel.

The cherry on top of their rock and roll sundae, though, is that their most recent EP, Five Easy Pieces, has reached the top of iTunes' sale charts in their native Canada, knocking Adele's blockbuster smash 21 down to Number Two. In addition to claiming the top spot, the band's earlier album, Learn and Burn, reached Number Four on the chart.
