Compilation album series by Various Artists

Big Shiny Tunes is a series of rock albums compiled and released by the Canadian music television station MuchMusic, and through MusiquePlus in Quebec, beginning in 1996. The best-selling album of the series was Big Shiny Tunes 2, which was certified Diamond in Canada (1,000,000 units) by the CRIA on March 25, 1998.[1] It has been cited as the best-selling album series in Canadian history,[2][3] with 5 million albums sold in ten years.[4]

Characteristics[edit]

The Big Shiny Tunes albums are each thought to be composed of a combination of rock songs that are major hits by well-known artists, less successful songs by well-known artists and songs by more obscure artists, released in the same year as the albums' publication.[5] There are a combination of Canadian, British and American performers. One common feature among the selected artists is that they are attached to Universal Music, Warner Bros., EMI Music Canada, and/or MuchMusic, who come together to produce Big Shiny Tunes albums.[2] The most frequently appearing band in the Big Shiny Tunes series is Nickelback, who appeared on 7 releases in the series (Big Shiny Tunes 5, 7-11, and 14.)

Part of the appeal of the series is that those who do not usually buy albums will find Big Shiny Tunes provides several well-known songs, as opposed to a CD by a single artist whose non-single tracks may be relatively unfamiliar.[2] The music is aimed at teenagers and young adults.[6] There has been some criticism of consistency in regards to the use of censored versus uncensored versions of songs from album to album (Big Shiny Tunes 6 carried a label stating that some songs contained coarse language, while the previous and following albums had censored songs by Matthew Good, Limp Bizkit, Staind, Not By Choice and Wheatus).

In addition to the ordinary albums in the series, MuchMusic also released albums that compile the biggest hits across a span of years, such as Big Shiny 80s (2005) that included classics like Billy Idol's "White Wedding." There have also been two volumes of Big Shiny 90s released.

History[edit]

The album Big Shiny Tunes was released in 1996. A new edition was released every year after until 2009, with Big Shiny Tunes 2 being particularly successful (the second and third albums alone account for over 2,000,000 of the albums sold under the brand).[7] Big Shiny Tunes 2 had been accompanied by heavy advertising.[8] The next year, MuchMusic assembled Big Shiny Tunes 3 by having its audience vote on which songs they would like to have included, a novel process.[9] The success of the series continued as Big Shiny Tunes 6 sold 68,500 copies in its first week in 2001, more than any other album in Canada that week.[10]

However, the series soon lost its predominance with the growth in popularity of rap music, as the next year Big Shiny Tunes 7 was outsold in its first week in Canada by Eminem's soundtrack to the film 8 Mile. Still, Big Shiny Tunes 7 sold 25,100 copies that week.[10] Big Shiny Tunes 8, released in 2003, also made the best-seller list in Canada.[11] The last album in the series, Big Shiny Tunes 14, was released on October 20, 2009. No edition has been released since then, indicating the discontinuation of the series.
