Supergarage (stylized as superGARAGE) is a Canadian indie rock band formed in 1995 in Thorold.[1][2] They have released one EP and three albums.

History[edit]

Supergarage took their name from an auto shop owned by Passero's father.[3] Supergarage is based out of Toronto.[4] In 1995, they released their 6-song EP Duct Tape, which had the radio hit "Post-Teen Crisis" . In 1997, they released their self-titled debut album on Iron Music/BMG.[5]

Original guitarist Mike Palermo left the band in 1998 to start a music store, Mikes Music. Original drummer Roger Habel Jr. left the band in 2002 and started several successful cover bands such as Betty Ford Band and Stays in Vegas.

In early 2000, they released Demolition, which garnered them praise for their mock video hit "Cheryl". Other videos made for that album were "Five Year Rut" and "On a Summer Nite".

In 2002, they released Elvis Was Bigger Than the Beatles through Sextant Records.[6] It was reissued in 2003 on EMI.[7] Their single from this record was "Sugar", which did very well on Canadian radio.[citation needed]

Supergarage toured with the Headstones, Big Sugar, I Mother Earth, Barstool Prophets, Matthew Good, Soul Asylum, and Green Day. The band was known as one of the hardest working bands in Canada and as road warriors.

They also had a track in Petz: Dogz 2 called "Pop Pop Radio instrumental".
