|Sloan singles chronology|
"The Good in Everyone" is the first single by Canadian rock band Sloan from the band's third studio album, One Chord to Another. The song is featured on the first edition of MuchMusic's Big Shiny Tunes compilation series. The song is currently the theme for the CBC television program George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight, formerly known as The Hour. It is one of the band's most popular and successful songs, reaching #9 on Canada's Singles Chart.
The music video for "The Good In Everyone" was directed by Mike Andringa, who would later direct several music videos for Sloan. The video's introductory scene is a spoof of the 1969 film, Easy Rider. In the scene, each band member plays a character from the film, with Andrew Scott playing Billy (Dennis Hopper), Chris Murphy playing Wyatt (Peter Fonda), and Jay Ferguson playing Connection (Phil Spector). The entire introduction before the music begins is longer than the song itself.
