The Salteens are a Canadian pop-rock group.

Their 2000 debut release, "Short-Term Memories" was released on Endearing Records. Along with an extensive, two-year tour in support of this release, the disc garnered The Salteens a substantial fan base not only in Canada, but in Australia, Japan and the U.S. as well."Short-Term Memories" quickly rose to the top of Canada's national college-radio chart, and was nominated in the category of Best Alternative Album at Canadian Music Week's 2001 Independent Music Awards.

The band's second release, "Let Go of Your Bad Days" was produced by Kevin Kane (The Grapes of Wrath), with contributions from Ryan Dahle ("Limblifter", "Age of Electric") and Pete Bastard ("Flash Bastard"). It was released in Australia in December of 2006, supported by an opening berth on tour with Australian indie-pop bands The Lucksmiths and Jebediah.

Zellers, a Canadian discount department store, used the song "Nice Day" in its spring 2007 commercial. In addition, the band guest-starred and performed in the August 28, 2007 episode of "Yo Gabba Gabba!" titled "Happy." The band wrote 2 songs for "Yo Gabba Gabba!": "Be Nice to Animals" and "I'm So Happy I Can Dance".

In February 2008 the band released 2 new songs for free download on their official website. The songs were "Hallowed Ways" and "Sunnyside St.". In March they released an additional 2 tracks: "Don't Break My Heart" and "Everything They Know About Us".
