6. The Guess Who
The Guess Who's big hit was "American Woman," but they are most certainly Canadian men. They formed in Winnipeg, Manitoba in the early 1960s and landed on the charts with "These Eyes," "Share the Land" and "No Sugar Tonight." They split in 1975, but two years later, bassist Jim Kale realized that nobody had bothered to trademark the band's name. He promptly did that himself, and continues to tour today as the Guess Who with new members. Randy Bachman had huge success in the 1970s with Bachman-Turner Overdrive, but he lost the rights to use that name, too. Poor guy. He should call his next project "Randy Bachman" and make sure nobody finds a way to steal that.
