Road Apples is the third studio album by Canadian rock band The Tragically Hip, and it was their first to reach  No. 1 in Canada.[3] The album has been certified 8× platinum in Canada.[4] It contains both heavy rock and some more mellow tunes, and the tune "Three Pistols" about painter Tom Thompson.[5]

The album's original working title was Saskadelphia, but this was rejected by the record label as likely to confuse listeners.[6]
