The Arrogant Worms are a three man comedy folk band from Alberta, Canada Kingston, Ontario. They gained massive popularity on the internet in the early 2000s, with their catchy tunes and hilarious jabs at Canadian culture. They got so popular that another Canadian comedy group, Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie, has had the misfortune of their entire catalogue being attributed to the Worms.

While their songs about Canada, such as Canada's Really Big or We Are The Beaver, are among their most popular, they've also had hits with songs about other subjects, such as vegetable rights activitism (Carrot Juice is Murder), sports (Me Like Hockey), various animals (I Am Cow, Billy The Theme Park Shark), and little-known relatives of famous Biblical people (Jesus' Brother Bob), to name a few. Their music consists of style parodies of nearly every music genre one can think of, from folk to Eighties pop to country to Celtic, and even children's music (Rippy The Gator). Arrogant Worms concerts are always somewhere between jam session and stand up comedy.

Magic: The Gathering did a Shout-Out to them in the form of the card Arrogant Wurm.

The Arrogant Worms contains examples of:

 Lead: Carrot juice constitutes murder

Background: And that's a real crime

  I got a Pressure Washer, I like it a lot, Cause it makes cleaning Destructive!

  • Long Runner Lineup: The Worms have been a group since 1991, and Trevor Strong, Mike Mc Cormick and Chris Patterson have all been there since 1995 (Patterson joined that year, and John Whytock left). This is not counting backup musicians, of which there have been several in the years between 1995 and 2010.
  • Look Behind You!: The narrator of "I Ran Away" outwits the devil himself by saying, "Look over there!" and fleeing.

 I'm hopin' that the devil smokes two packs a day, 'cause my day of reckoning is here and I ran away!

  Her death was unintentional, but now she's two-dimensional. My angel is truly in Heaven.
