Flybanger was a Canadian metal band. Once known as Jar, they released two2 CDs under that name before releasing a five track EP titled Outlived as well as their first release on a major label,Headtrip To Nowhere as Flybanger through Sony Music in 2001. The band has since broken up. The singles released from Headtrip To Nowhere were "Cavalry", "Radical" and "Blind World". The latter was also used on the soundtrack for the motion picture Dracula 2000.

In 2005, Rob Wade (drums) and Garth Allen (vocals) joined Kill Rhythm, a band started by Rob Thiessen (formerly of Noise Therapy). In March 2009, following the breakup of Kill Rhythm,[1] both Wade and Allen turned their focus to the heavy acoustic rock project, Thick Of It.

Jar returned to work in August 2010 with a planned reunion show in late October.
