Great band! I've seen them live in NYC and Cleveland. A true modern Classic Rock band! Frontman Colin MacDonald is an amazing voice in the tradition of Paul Rogers and Jimmy Page. Lead axeman and brother John Angus MacDonald delivers fantastic riffs and leads in the tradition of Page, Richards, and Townsend among other iconic players.
These guys put on one hell of a good show! Check out an acoustic set if you get a chance!
Correction: I meant to compare Collin's vocal style to Robert Plant, not Jimmy Page. Sorry for the confusion.V 1 Comment
Probably the most under-appreciated band of all time, Plumtree was an all-female rock/power-pop band from Halifax that was together from 1993-2000. During that time they released a six song cassette and three full length albums, as well as several singles.V 1 Comment
Great band. Really like the song "Come to Light".
How are these guys this low?
Great Band Really like the song Mist
PTH absolutely has to be the underrated band of their era. These guys absolutely play circles around everyone on this list excluding Rush.
Seventy-seven? The band that cMe out with the BEST riff since American Woman in Echo Beach! And greats like Cooling The Medium and Women Around the World! The best of Canadian New Wave.
Best Canadian band they should be higher and there a great jazz rock band they have a lot of trumpets and I love the singers voice
Smart, melodic and memorable rock. They deserve so much better!
Amazing band. Sunny Days was my anthem!V 1 Comment
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
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
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.
Moxy made me a true blue fan of Canadian rock (earl rules) Zed from the so, ont.V 1 Comment
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...
