Canada has come out with some of the best rock bands in the world. Some of those bands or artists we hear all the time but don't realize they're actually from Canada. Personally, I wish we could claim The Black Keys as one of our own but, hey, whatever. We've got lots a great bands, too, ok! Let me kick things off with this one:

In the spirit of ATS.......please welcome...from the Great White North....RHEOSTATICS!

Aliens (Christmas)



Rheostatics

Justin Beiber negates anything good. Even Rush.

I thought the other day that the Big Band theme was probably the most heard song in America. Full version:

Sorry dude it was the smiling Buddha cabaret in Vancouver and it's gone now.

www.vancouverisawesome.com...

54-40 even named an album after the place because they played there so much.


The Smilin' Buddha Cabaret was a Vancouver "Supper Club", originally called the "Smilin' Buddha Dine and Dance". It opened in 1953 by Albert Kwan. Its iconic neon sign, now found at the Museum of Vancouver, was a city landmark, and one of the most ornate pieces of neon signwork ever made in Vancouver. "The Buddha" or "Smileys" (just a few of many nicknames for the place) had a licence which allowed it to operate an hour later than other bars. Although many great musicians played its small stage from the 1950s to the 1990s, it was more simply known as a place for touring and local musicians to congregate. The venue closed for good in 1993, serving its last 16–17 years as Vancouver's epicentre of punk rock.

How about Chantal Kreviazuk? Wiki says she is married to Raine Maida of Our Lady Peace, another great Canadian rock band.

Alexis on fire.
They broke up a while back. But their lead singer - Dallas Green, has the most amazing voice.
