I'm a lonely Teenager in a Mexican State, And all i ever hear is Rap, AWEFUL STUFF it should be CRAP not RAP, I'm looking for a good Canadian band because the ones I heard I love, Sum41, Nickleback. I just want to know if there other ones like Nickleback and Sum41 from Canada, I dont really want "This is how u remind" type songs by Nickleback but anything else will do.

Or if any has heard of a new band thats not the well know I'm interested if songs are on KaZaA Since Music Communitys are the easiet way to make bands well know :D

I agree with Vestril, Our Lady Peace are awesome, and have a new album coming out. The song "Somewhere out there" is amazing. You should also look for The Tragically Hip, which have a style very much their own, but one I really like. The song "Ahead by a Century" is my favourite by them. Also, "At the Hundreth Meridian", "My music at work", "Something On", "Locked in the trunk of a Car" and "New Orleans is sinking " are quite good as well. I Mother Earth are another good Canadian band, particularly their older stuff. The songs "One more Astronaut" and "Another Sunday" are really good. Matthew Good band are great, they have some harder music, but a few nice acoustic songs as well, "Apparitions" and "Strange Days" are their acoustic ones. Also, "Everything is Automatic", "Load me up", and "Hello Time Bomb" are some good songs. How could I forget Barenaked Ladies, one of my favourite Canadian bands. The songs "Brian Wilson", "Lovers in a Dangerous Time", "Be my Yoko Ono", "Life in a Nutshell", and of course "If I had a Million Dollars" are some of their songs I like. I'm trying to think of some more, and If I do, I'll post them on here.

To Darth Clem, yes, the Barenaked Ladies are Canadian.
Sorry to get your hopes up Vestril, I've since gone back and edited my original post:D
I too remember Moxy Fruvous, and here's a question. Anyone remember the Spin Doctors? Another cool Canadian band.

PS: The Tragically Hip have a new album "It's A Good Life If You Don't Weaken" coming out on June 11th!

For jazz try 'The Great Canadian Brass' they might be good, I dunno I dont listen to em. Those maple leafs...hate em. Also the Sens, I don't care much for them either even though I live in Ottawa. Canucks are for my, got to root for my home town no matter how bad they are

Man Canadian Bacon is great movie. Best Canadian bands are Rush, Barenaked Ladies, Our Lady Peace, and Tragically Hip. Man I thought I was the only person who was into Rush who is under like 40. By the way for whoever posted this before, yes Rush just had a new album come out. Also Barenaked Ladies have to be one of my favorite bands. They are smart, funny, and make great music. Anyways, just adding in my 2 cents.
