Ten Rock Songs by Canadian Acts that Should Have Been Top 10 Hits in the U.S.

I beseech you, my American friends: please do NOT judge us by Avril Lavigne, Alanis Morissette, Celine Dion, or (nauseatingly) Justin Bieber. This country has produced MANY hard-rockin' tunes which most of you, alas, have never even heard of! We are, up here, entirely too polite to aggressively promote ourselves.






















Honorable Mention: The following ditties aren't hard rock, but they still kick ass!














Now, remember, the premise of this list was to name songs that you, as Americans, haven't heard. Thus, if you HAVE heard any of these tunes, please let me know. Also, by all means, tell me if I've actually MISSED some righteous Canuck songs!

1. You gave us Neil Young

 

and Joni Mitchell and Sarah McLachlan. Neil Young alone outweighs Justin Beiber (who is actually unintentionally funny due to being such a pretentious putz) Celine Dion, Avril Lavigne and Alanis Morissette.

Although you did forget that you also foisted Nickelback on us.

2. A country has to have a river as mighty as the Mississippi to rock

It's in the rule Book!

Look it up!!

PS: It's unlikely that I'll be revisiting this thread since it takes so long to load with all the insipid videos you posted.

8. You're all wrong! This is the greatest musical gift Canada has ever given us.

Bob and Doug McKenzie and Geddy Lee all three Canadians.

9. Hey I'm happy with both Rushes -

Regular and Mahogany.

I was already hip to Kim Mitchell and Bruce Cockburn but I'll check these others out. Welcome to DU!
