The Top Ten
Three Days Grace is a really great band, but The Birthday Massacre should be number one on this list, because they're way better and extremely unique and have their own special sound which makes them stand out of all the crowds in the music world.
They are the most amazing alt. rock group EVER! - fireinside96
OBVIOUSLY. There's absolutely no doubt about that. I like Nickelback, they're really good but Adam Gontier and the other member make me alive. They are my own drug.
they're amazing live, and their albums never disappoint10 Comments
Three days Grace will soon become my favorite but because Nickelback have been my favorite for so long I will vote them. I am Australian and all my favorite bands are from Canada, you guys rock!
I love Nickelback his voice, music quality... I being from India where bands like nirvana, lp, etc play their lead role, I love this band, don't know why...
How can anyone like those deeply sexist, right-wing rednecks, that made one song and copied it a thousand times over the years..
All their song sound the same.
Listen to Burn it to the Ground it's really good - SmoothCriminal4 Comments
I have to say that Billy Talent is my absolute fave! Their lyrics are so powerful and creative that it makes me wish that I could come up with the amazing songs that they write, Fallen Leaves, Man Alive, Hanging By a Thread and Red Flag are some of the greatest songs I have ever listened to!
I can't describe how much I love this band. Every single song of them is amazing. My favourite is White Sparrows.
Best band ever! Bloody Nails and Broken Hearts is such an awesome song! I also love their Pezz stuff from before they were Billy talent!
Billy Talent and Simple plan are the best Band's ever!3 Comments
Their lyrics are meaningful and all about life and it's challenges. Jacob's voice is amazing and uniquely stands out from many other artists. How are they in 9th place? They deserve 1st easy!
Hedleys songs are good bouncy and makes you feel alive..
I LOVE HEDLEY I THINK THEY'RE THE BEST AND MOST SUCCESSFUL CANADIAN BAND OUT THERE!
Avril Lavign is just another joke to this music industry and so is Justin Bieber. They both just suck and are an embarrassment. The Birthday Massacre should be number one on this list. And also Silverstein should be number two, because Silverstein is another Canadian Rock band that's awesome and talented, just like The Birthday Massacre
saw her concert few years ago, simply AMAZING!
she just keeps getting better and better!
Thanks not how you spell it. - AnonymousChick
I love this band. 100%
My second favorite Canadian band only band that tops them is TDG.
They have a song called whatever it's really good it was chris benoit's theme song before his disturbing tragedy despite that fact that song ROCKS! My favorite song by this band.
I like billy talent a lot but in my opinion Our lady peace is just better - FreeForm_Fury
I love Raine Maida's voice. Its so unique.
Sum 41 the best Canadian modern band, and what the hell is simple plan doing on the list, if anything they're bad to Canada - HighSkoolArtist
Listen No Reason, Some Say or Underclass Hero. - mattlol
Extremely talented band capable of playing a variety of styles
SHOULD BE AT THE TOP 3! Their amazingly awesome and hot and rocks! Why do you guys put them at no. 4? This is so unfair!
So many people can relate to Simple Plan's honest lyrics, from hurting teens to people in relationships.
As much as I love some of the other bands and artists on this list, Simple Plan is simply the best.
after listening to all their songs, some of them are very sad and meaningful.
The best example of the kind of Jewel that can only spring from indie rock. Incredibly talented musicians, intricate and multi-layered musical compositions, powerful lyrics and fantastic vocals that create a hauntingly beautiful and emotional experience. Three albums and not a single weak song. My absolute favorite canadian band!
Original and compelling, Arcade Fire created a kind of music all their own, and they deserve so much more credit than all of the cliche, packaged music listed before them.
How in the sweet hell can Nickleback be above Arcade Fire?
Have you guys even heard their CD maroon, not a SINGLE mediocre song in that album! - johanarvidsson
even if they are not voted the best, they are still the funniest
Should be number one! Most underrated band because all it takes is a listen to realize this is band is music perfection
How can this not be higher! Best band in lyrics, vocals, melody, personality, meaning---Should really be number 1!
Marianas Trench is the best Canadian band in... Canada. They should be way up high on the list. They have such a great sound and their songs are meaningful and not like that repeating crap you hear these days.
My computer is broken AGAIN. I really need to get a new computer. Because my computer says Marianas Trench is 24th on the list. I'm going to get my computer fixed now... - marianastrench2 Comments
Well Thousand Foot Krutch is obviously the best because TFK is like Eminem, Linkin Park, and Skillet All combined, except better. By the way why isn't Hawk Nelson on this list? Hawk Nelson is extremely good even better than TFK. And Why is Justin Beaver the 12 year old little girl ahead of Thousand Foot Krutch on this list?
TFK is a great band, my favorite actually. I like how they are Christian rockers because that's basically all I listen to. If you guys like TFK, try: Skillet, Disciple, and Fm Static. Those are my favorites. Go TFK!
The Birthday Massacre should be number one, because they've got real talent, not Justin Bieber. This dude is not a nice person and his music is a joke. He doesn't have any genuine talent and he probably doesn't write his own songs. This world has become stupid and ignorant when it comes to music.
Why is Justin Bieber here? She should be at the bottom!
Justin Bieber should be at the top
He's an a%%hole shouldn't be on any list except an Ahole list2 Comments
Great, great rock band. Hands down...original, authentic.
GREAT BAND... best in canada by a long shot. Unlike those Theory of a Nickleback bands, this band actually makes art... not pop rock dribble - VADERtheIMPALER
They have the most amazing instrumentals ever. They are maybe a little bit to heavy for my liking but they're still amazing. Probably one of the most skilled bands ever
Seriously, who are the other people voting for?
Awesome band and I'm not even Canadian!
How is Justin Bieber higher.
The Birthday Massacre is the best Canadian band ever and actually one of the best bands in the whole world. They're very cool and unique and they have an awesome talent. They've got their own unique sound that makes them stand out in a very special way. They should actually be number one because they deserve it and people should really appreciate them for their awesomeness!
Legendary singer/songwriter and guitarist best-known for 'Summer of 69'. The best-selling Canadian artist of all time!
Most likely this band will be around for awhile!
Annihilator and Rush are the best. - Metal_Treasure
Saw them in Ottawa for frosh week put on a great show, very fun song selection and some I loved the motown added in.
Shame they broke up. Really liked 'Flawed Design' and still do.
Rising band from Hamilton, On. Only have 8 songs out but should definitely be well known very shortly
Better than Justin Bieber that's for sure so why is it so god awfully low
Carly Rae Jepsen is just as horrible as Justin Bieber and Avril Lavign. These three embarrassments should get the fudge off this list. The Birthday Massacre and Silverstein should be at the top of course because these two special bands deserve a round of applauses. Eh?
Forget Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen is a recent star of Canada 'Call Me Maybe' was an international hit No1 in the UK, it's so catchy.
