Canadian rockers The Tragically Hip are to be honoured with their own street in Ontario.
The group will soon be able to drive down Tragically Hip Way in their native Kingston after city councillor Brian Reitzel won his campaign to score the tribute.
There are also plans to create a Walk of Fame to honour city celebrities and the band is expected to get one of the first stars.
The Tragically Hip have already been inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame in Toronto.
