This site is dedicated to the celebration of great
Canadian bands. Initially most of the links found here will be for
"New Rock" or "Alternative"...(or whatever you choose to call this
particular music genre.) For years now, a particular debate has been
raged in the Canadian Broadcasting industry over the Canadian Content
(CanCon) in Radio station airplay. Some say that it allows weak talented bands
to water down the quality of the Canadian airwaves, and that it is
unfair to Canadian stations near the border who have to compete with American
stations with no such regulations. Others vehemently argue that it
protects the Canadian industry, mostly from the great American commercial
juggernaut. Both arguements are true and just, and the key is to find the
right balance of CanCon necessary. Imagine the Canadian industry or band as a small sappling
in a forest of huge Oak trees. If not given special attention it will be
starved and die. But if it is given a chance it will grow and someday be as
big or bigger than the Oaks that once threatened it. Whatever the case,
today the Canadian Music scene is alive and thriving. Canada currently
boasts some of the greatest bands in new music. Some of which you will
find here on this site. Enjoy!
If there is a Canadian band you like that isn't here, try the Canadian
Music site for a great listing of virtually any Canadian artist you can think of.
If you want to find some links to any band (not just Canadian) not found on this page try the Ultimate Band List.

The links found on this page are not necessarily the official pages of these bands. Instead of
putting up all the links to these bands I could find I've tried to put up the link that gives the most links
to each particular band. This site will always be changing. The bands here are not all favourite bands
of mine, but they are all great Canadian bands! Feel free to tell me if there is a band you think should be
on this site. Peace out!
