From late 2020 to early 2021, the Canadian indie-rock band Mother Mother rose to prominence once more with the help of Gen Z promoting them through social media (mainly Tiktok). Even though they haven’t released new music in two years, Mother Mother has been receiving millions of new streams through music-playing applications such as Spotify, Apple Music, and Youtube Music. Songs from this band are being used as dance audios, cover inspiration for singers, and some other musical content-creators have created mashups of these songs. The hashtag, #mothermother has been viewed over 56 million times on the social media platform, Tiktok.
