The Toronto three-piece triumphed over The Tragically Hip, Billy Talent, The Sheepdogs and Big Wreck to be awarded their ninth Juno Award in their home country of Canada.
The award follows the outfit's recent induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame last week, at which drummer Neil Peart admitted:
"We've been saying for a long time that this wasn't a big deal. Turns out… it kinda is!"
