But they still suck. ;)

Usually the smaller, more unknown Canadian bands are really good. For some reason, the ones that get success elsewhere in bigger markets (US), they're the ones that are usually sucky and smell like poo. :stunned:

Canadians come out with some really terrible bands though. I mean, Nickelback? Simple Plan?? Not By Choice??

I mean, it's bands like these that make me hang my head down when Canadian music is mentioned.

But Nickelback is by far the worst. They're like, the worst of the worst..and that's really bad. :cool:
This is true but then again, Nickelback were a band long before "how you remind me" came out, the only reason they made it "big" and were overplayed like that is because they were signed. And who would do such a thing? Not a canadian record label, the yanks signed them and blame us for theiur existance, if it were up to canadians the name "Nickelback" would mean absolutely nothing. Same thing goes for Sum41.

There are a lot of really talented Canadian artists out there, Hawksley Workman, Sam Roberts, Pilate, Serena Ryder....for some reason these people are always overlooked, so forget about the crap (every country produces some crap) and embrace the talent.

I don't even realize at times, but a lot of the music that I listen to, the bands are either Canadian or lived in Canada at one point. For example Broken Social Scene, Death from Above, The Stills, Metric, Arcade Fire, Feist, Uncut, Stars and the Dears etc.
