Top Ten Best Canadian Bandsrocknrolldude

I can see I'm voting for an underdog, but when I think of Canadian music this is what I think of. In a perfect world these men would recognized worldwide as the exact definition of Canadian music.
(I'd like to note that I have a great level of admiration for groups like Rush, The Hip, The Band, Young, Guess Who etc. But seeing some of the crappy bands on this list has made me understand why the world makes fun of our music)
More people are heartbroken by GBS breakup than Rush's. Free NFLD!V 1 Comment
How are they this far behind Marianas trench? Rains writes some of their music for them.
This band would be so much higher if they were popular outside of Canada. Kind of like how Breaking Benjamin can't get popular outside of America
How did nickelback get ranked sixth and our lady peace is stuck in twenty second? Listen to naveed and spiritual machines then tell me how that happened.
Ridiculously far down the listV 9 Comments
One of the best bands ever. They do not get the same respect as other bands because Barenaked Ladies are humorous and quirky. But, they had well written songs and complex melodies.
Their songs are so underrated, if people would take the time to listen to their music they would realize how great of a band they really are.
With widespread popular success in Canada the U.S. and Europe as well as an incredible range of cunningly creative and beautiful songs spanning more than 20 years, BNL should easily be in the top five.
Funny, sad, clever. Just too cerebral for some?V 6 Comments
rush is a close second
steppenwolf is great
nothing wrong with the guess who or BTO
BNL and trooper are just fine
triumph... that's where it's at. - qaz9999
Triumph has got to be higher in the rankings. Creative rockers. A part of canadian rock history.
Lay it on the line. Probably my favorite rock n roll tune.
Triumph should be in the top 10!V 3 Comments
I cannot believe I have to add these guys!
If you're a metalhead listen to None so Vile and you won't be disappointed.
How the hell was this dude not on here before I added him laugh out loud
One of the biggest names in Canadian music for over 20 year!
Matthew Good Band should have been way more popular than they were.
I can't believe three days grace is number two on a list that has some absolutely amazing Canadian talent
Matthew Good should be in the top 10!
These guys need to be number one they are so good, they keep me strong and sane, I love you jacob hoggard
Hedley is so good they should be at least in top 5! Anything, invincible, crazy for you, ill be with you, 321, old school, never too late, one life, young are so BOSS!
5 more years of hits and Hedley will be in the top 5 - how many bands played in the 2010 Olympics as well as half time show for the Grey Cup?
Hedley is my favourite band, they are so amazingV 7 Comments
This is the best band ever. Helped me past my troubled young young lives.
Literally the best Canadian band in the world!
Soothed my torched soul on many occasions..
They make Magick. Best band EVER, ANYWHERE!V 1 Comment
Finger Eleven is horribly underrated. They are most known for Paralyzer, but they have had much better songs on their older albums. Give them a try. - NuMetalManiakV 1 Comment
These guys, The Hip, Sam Roberts and Sloan should without a doubt be in the top 10.
Should be number one. Who sells more concert tickets in Canada than Blue Rodeo?
How could you have missed this from the list of the top 10?
How is Blue Rodeo not number one?V 5 Comments
Great Newcommers with meaningful lyrics and a great singer! NR
One of the greatest guitar players.And he was blind.
He was an amazing talent.
How is Loverboy not on the list?! With classic songs like "Working For The Weekend" & "Turn Me Loose" they have to at least crack the top 20!
"Turn Me Loose" and "Working For The Weekend" alone has to get you Top 20, right? If not Top 10.
In their day Loverboy was a top selling and arena filling band!V 2 Comments
Down With Webster is pure Canadian talent! I'm obsessed with this band and they have come so far from just a middle school talent show (which they won! ) personally I think they should be higher up on this list, at least top 5! They make my pretty proud to be Canadian that's for sure!
They are incredible live and amazing to their fans- always interacting with us and making videos for us. :) Their music is awesome and catchy. They make me very happy.
Best band out there! They put so much effort into everything they do and you can really tell that they are passionate about it. #whoarriorV 2 Comments
Surprised they are on this list, far more deserved to be in top 10.
Why are they not so well known outside Canada?
