93 The Spoons

They dominated Canadian New Wave (even more than M+M) in the early eighties. Nova Heart, Those Old Emotions, Romantic Traffic...who has not heard these and smiled to himself/herself at the memories they recall?

Great rhythms, blending voices, awesome synths. Easily top ten. - drsteve

94 Prism Prism Prism is a Canadian rock band formed in Vancouver in 1977. They were originally active from 1977 to 1984 and have been active again from 1987 to present.

Amazed they are not here. They had great songs like Armageddon, Spaceship Superstar, Flying, Young and Restless. Armageddon and Young and Restless were terrific albums. Toured relentlessly until Ron Tabak, the singer, was killed in about 1984. A great group from the late Seventies to early Eighties. - drsteve

Impossible have to be in top 20 this is obviously a millennium child list

Great band Classic Canadian rock

95 The Arrogant Worms

The Arrogant Worms are a Canadian musical comedy trio that parodies many musical genres. They are well known for their humorous on-stage banter in addition to their music.

I'm not Canadian, but I thoroughly enjoyed their witty music.

Even thought they are not together anymore, Antoine Sicotte and James Renald were an awesome duo! "Love Song" & "Some Kinda Wonderful" were really popular in the late 90s, and had the chance to be the first band to have a prize of SOCAN. Producers, song-writers and talented singers, their melodies will always be in my Canadian roots...
