That Song by Big Wreck. Big Wreck was a hard rock band of the late 1990s. The band was formed in Boston, Massachusetts by vocalist Ian Thornley, guitarist Brian Doherty, bassist Dave Henning and drummer Forrest Williams, who met as students at the Berklee College of Music. After several years of gigging in Boston and Cambridge, the band signed to a major label and released its debut album In Loving Memory Of… in 1997. The single “The Oaf” was a major Top Ten hit for the band that year. Since Ian Thornley is Canadian, the band’s biggest commercial success was in Canada rather than the United States. The album’s subsequent singles, “Blown Wide Open” and “That Song”, were not as successful on the American charts as “The Oaf” had been, but in Canada they were both Top Ten hits.
