Finger Eleven is a band that has earned a devoted Canadian following. Their first album, Letters from Chutney, was recorded under the nameRainbow Butt Monkeys, with money won from a rock band search contest on a radio station 97.7 CHTZ (Hits) HTZ FM "Southern Ontario's BestRock" out of St. Catharines, Ontario.

They changed their name to Finger Eleven once they realized their music had changed and they wanted to be taken more seriously, and with aname like Rainbow Butt Monkeys that wasn't going to happen. They became Finger Eleven for their breakthrough Tip, released on Mercury Recordsin Canada in 1997 and re-released by Wind-Up Records in the United States in 1998. The name Finger Eleven comes from an earlier version of thesong Thin Spirits from the album Tip. Lead singer, Scott Anderson explains: "when everything is pushing you in one direction and your instinctdrives you in another--that’s finger eleven." This also marked a change in the band's sound.
