"The Good in Everyone" is the first single from Canadian rock band Sloan's third studio album, One Chord to Another. The song peaked at #9 on Canada's Singles Chart,[1] and continues to be one of the band's most popular songs. The song is featured on the first edition of MuchMusic's Big Shiny Tunes compilation series. The song was also the theme for the CBC television program George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight.

Music video[edit]

The music video for "The Good In Everyone" was filmed at Toronto Pearson International Airport and directed by Mike Andringa, who would later direct several more 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), Jay Ferguson playing Connection (Phil Spector) and Patrick Pentland playing the Bodyguard. The entire introductory scene before the music begins is longer than the song itself.
