For some reason I thought this thread said Canadian Bacon and got inordinately excited...

On topic, anyway, greatest band from Canada: Propagandhi.

Weakerthans are great by extension, and the Flatliners are pretty great too.

Other good ones:

You guys have said all of the best of 'em so far.

Everyone check out Northcote, great folk rock and he's touring with Dave Hause:

I know this is shameless self-promotion, but here we go: http://delhimusic.bandcamp.com/
http://www.delhimusic.ca

We're a relatively new (ish) band from Guelph, Ontario (pretty close to Toronto), simply called Delhi (pronounced Dell-High).
(RIYL: Brand New, Foo Fighters, Thrice, Sunny Day Real Estate)


As far as bands from Canada that have slayed it...almost too many to list: Moneen, Alexisonfire, The Reason, Comeback Kid, Teenage Kicks, Propaghandi, Lifestory:Monologue, Silverstein, The Fullblast, Grade, This is a Standoff, Attack in Black, The End,

..this list isn't even coming close to showing how much pop-rock, or great hip-hop has come from Canada either.

I can't speak for the rest of Canada, but the local scene here in Winnipeg right now is awesome. I highly recommend people check out these 4 bands in particular and by the way, Distances are playing shows in Saskatchewan and Alberta next month. Go see them!









Surprised no one mentioned Brighter Brightest yet, that band rules. Sick City, Daggermouth and Not By Choice aren't around anymore, but they have some great songs. Same with Cauterize. I'm still sure I'm forgetting tons of bands, but whatever.

Anyone really care about the JUNO Awards? I'm still happy that The Flatliners are being recognized, even though I'm not sure if they're actually going to win.

Did anyone mentioned Junior Battles ? NO? well, then... Junior Battles, they've recorded their second LP and will be released sometime this year. Meanwhile you can enjoy their 2 ep's and first LP (I recommend 2nd ep "S/T" and LP "Idle Ages") and I forgot to mention their 2 songs cassette.

Also, a band called Mute

I like Junior Battles, but I think I love Sam Sutherland more. Everyone should check out what he does for AUX and read his book Perfect Youth: The Birth of Canadian Punk.
