A kickass Canadian Indie band. Emily Haines (the lead singer) redefines awesome. Finally, the Canadians made something Americans will love.
Randy: "I just bought Metric's newest album. I love it." Paul: "Yea, they suck! Listen to some good music like Green Day, John Mayer, or Linkin Park!" Randy then proceeds to push Paul's lifeless body into the Hudson.
Chill, euphoric, awesome. Better than the usual. Something similar to the feeling of an awesome rave. Probably drawn from the idea that the metric system is "better" than other systems.
