The Walrus? Was the Eggman around as well?

I'm forever grateful to High Fidelity for showing me there are other obsessive rankers and listmakers, in fiction at least, so I couldn't pass this up. But other than Rush, which was a great band, and Neil Young, who has some good individual songs, I couldn't think of anyone. Even looking at Wikipedia only brings up maybe a few good ones: The Tragically Hip, Broken Social Scene, the Guess Who. The article 'Canada Rock' even mentions Paul Anka at the beginning, the list is so lame. Oh, Canada.

The Walrus

I love the Eggman!

I must first correct our scribe who has reversed the order of the first two. As great as Triumph was (is?), Geddy Lee has more talent in his little pinkie.

I didn't count Neil Young because my list was originally referring to top Canadian "rawkers". If we expand that to include a broader range of musicians, the list would go:

1. Rush (c'mon, seriously, Rush is THE supremo Can-band)

2. Neil Young

3. Triumph

4. Loverboy (just to piss everyone off)


665. Barenaked Ladies

666. Celine Dion


Sorry, didn't mean to hate on Rush (the band) naming them #2, I was clearly distracted by Rush (the hypocrite).

Celine Dion at #666 -- so true, so true.

If you're including non-bands, don't forget Alanis Morissette!
