Comeback Kid - L'histoire se répète

It is often abbreviated to CBK, the name of this Canadian hardcore punk band from Winnipeg.

Why band name Comeback Kid - Mario LemieuxIn the course of time many people have received the honorable label Comeback Kid (to name just two: US ex-president Bill Clinton and his athletic compatriot, quarterback Joe Montana), but the Canadian band specifically refers here to their fellow-Canadian, ice hockey hero Mario Lemieux (born 1965).

Lemieux - one of the world's best hockey players - retired in 1997, then changed his mind in 2000 and returned to the ice.

Mario by the way had more nicknames: in Canada, people knew him as Buries It, Le Magnifique, Super Mario, The Magnificent (One) and (because of his player's number) Le Soixante-Six.

Active: 2002-present, CAN
