Canada produces a lot of good indie rock bands...and not much else.

Japandroids, the Arcade Fire, Tegan and Sara, Death from Above, Metric, Matt Mays, Dear Rouge, Stars, the New Pornographers, Feist, Broken Social Scene, etc.

Also, the Beaches are pretty underrated. I wasn’t a huge fan for a while, but I did a 180 after seeing them live. All of them can shred and the chick has a great voice, I was really impressed. One of the better shows I’ve seen over the last few years.

Boys Night Out and Moneen for 00s era emo.

I haven't listened to or even thought of Moneen in (apparently) over a decade. That took me way back!

The throwback reminded me of another Canadian band, the Flatliners.

Also shout out to Swollen Members. I worked with Mad Child’s mom at a local White Spot restaurant.

It's funny because I've heard some good stories about Nickleback. Apparently they started by selling CDs out of the back of their truck in the farm lands, so respect for building your band from the ground up (like Blink did). One of my buddies recorded in the same studio as the band and the producer said Chad Krueger nails all his vocals in the first try or so (music is terrible, but that's still kind of impressive). They also apparently put on a good live show, I wouldn't know since I would never spend money to see them lol. 

They just write such terrible music.

Also heard a rumour that Chad Krueger stuck a beer bottle up a chick at the Roxy night club, can't confirm if it was consensual or not.

Matthew Good Band seems like a band that a lot of people outside Canada wouldn't recognize. He's kind of like Canada's less good Radiohead, at least a lot of his acoustic stuff is similar tonally. 

 

 


Or their more rock side:

Anyone not familiar with Matt Mays should check this song out. The outro is stupidly awesome. I definitely hear some Tom Petty influence in a lot of his music.
