Bad Habits is an album by The Monks, released in 1979. In 2012, the Canadian musician Thomas D'Arcy organized The Monks Bad Habits Tribute show at the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto, which featured Ford and members of Sloan, The New Pornographers, Change of Heart, and released a track-by-track cover album. In addition to Canadian musicians such as Chris Colohan, John Kastner, Ian Blurton, and Chris Murphy, Ford contributed. Ford was presented with a double-platinum award for Bad Habits from EMI at the concert. Johnny B. Rotten" (Hudson, Ford, Cassidy).

The Monks were actually the brainchild of two departed members of the British progressive rock group The Strawbs - drummer Richard Hudson and bass player John Ford - along with hired gun vocalist Terry Cassidy. Hudson and Ford had struck Canadian hit pay dirt once before, as co-writers of The Strawbs’ only radio hit, Part of the Union in 1973, then left and splintered off into their own Hudson-Ford conglomeration for a few albums before literally stumbling into becoming The Monks  . The success enabled Hudson and Ford carte blanche to record Bad Habits, but once the . public got wind that The Monks were not punks but Hudson and Ford, the album stiffed. There was animosity in England, Ford remembers. Drugs in My Pocket" was a Top 20 single in Canada in the fall of 1980, and Bad Habits earned double platinum certification in 1982.
