Of course, they ARE a bunch of goofs...but they probably do that better than anyone. Unfortunately for them, they've written a fair amount of awfully serious stuff that gets completely passed over in favor of the "One Week" and "Pinch Me" types. "Call & Answer" and "What a Good Boy" are very good tunes, just to name two. And live they're a completely different kind of show from U2, but worth the price of admission.

My favorite Canadian band, however...and probably my second favorite band period right now...is Our Lady Peace.

if i havent made myself clear, rush is ass. theyre horrible, almost as bad as celine dion. im ashamed to share the same international borders as they do.

noone noone NOONE has a worse voice than geddy lee. NOONE. he sounds like a rat thats been doused in oil, lit on fire, and is now being drowned (but hes still on fire).

i hate them more than anything else on this earth.

default are a 10 generation pearl jam wannabe band. atrociously terrible.

nickelback: most overated canadian band of all time.

the hip: i share most of your sentiments, i dont hate em, i dont love them, but theyre not too bad. plus they have the song "fireworks" which has to be one of the best "canadian" songs of all time.

b4-4 what a great boy band. same with wave, and dont forget about id and three deep! canada has lots of beautiful pop stars.

and now the time has come for the girl band that was made up on tv some time ago...i forget what theyre called though for some reason.

anyway, if corporate big wigs are gonna make a group, why wouldnt they at least put GOOD looking people in there?!

olp: i really dig their latest song "somewhere out there", very fake plastic trees-ish, though for that reason it makes me not like it, because they appear to want to be like radiohead.

sloan: id love to hang out with these guys, enough said.

mathew good band is a supreme ass. i have no use for him, but some of his old music is alright.

the tea party are good, and i think its possible to think of them as awesome. but for me personally, i just cant get that into them. really good group.

did i mention how much rush and geddy lee are the worst shitheads this country has ever produced?

and whats up with geddy?!?! seriously?!?!? why would you play bass that HIGH!?!!??! whats wrong with you??!?!? learn how to sing already.

man do they suck.

the bottom line: europe makes far greater music, north america sucks, though ofcourse there are definate exceptions.
Hey Zoom, what do you think of that Canadian band, Rush?


Lol, they're not that bad. I sort of like them, actually, although I'm feeling somewhat uneasy about admitting it now...


My faves: Bryan Adams (He's Canadian, right?), N. Young, Zoom96's arch-nemesis band, and an act from the early 1990's called the Northern Pikes (are they still around?) Their song "She Ain't Pretty" rules!

hmmm.. does anybody remember Blue Rodeo anymore? I thought they were pretty popular up there? I guess not.

I have one of their albums. Their songwriting is decent, but their vocal harmonies sometimes gets me all goosebumpy.

Here's another great one: Leonard Cohen. Montreal native, graduated from the same college I went to, one of the best lyricist of our time, one of my favorite all-time singer-songwriter.

hm Canadian music- immediately I always think of Neil Young- and most importanltly his song Helpless the one that goes 'there is house in North Ontario' etc, etc- he is such a great artiste and I also love the Teas Party - they are very nice and that is about all I can think of

Well, I almost agree with you about the voice, cept I hate Alanis's far more, but you should give Rush a LITTLE credit for being very fine musicians. I take it you don't like prog rock.

I used to love Bryan Adams and Gowan. I went to amazing concerts by both of them back when I was still a huge fan--and they really were amazing concerts. I'm a little sick of all the Adams dissing that goes on, maybe he's gone a little soft, but give him respect for albums like Cuts Like a Knife. When I saw him (1994, greatest hits tour) he played for THREE HOURS. Awesome. My first concert. I saw Gowan in a club and he rocked so hard. Really fun show. He is now a member of Styx. Talk about artistic suicide. I don't seem to listen to either of them much any more, though I still like them.

I also agree with deathbear about Europe being far superior to either Canada or the US. Hey, Australia and New Zealand aren't shabby either. Love Crowded House, and saw Midnight Oil last night--amazing!

Confession time: My first concert was also Bryan Adams and it was a kicka** 3 hours show. Don't really listen to him anymore though, kinda lost me with the Barbra Steisand duet

Im surprised that noone has mentioned 54-40 or Bruce Cockburn...well Bruce isnt really a 'band', but he rocks just the same.

Zoomerang the only way you could be able to express yourself so explicitly about shit and ass is if you have been there yourself...so enjoy the taste...Rush doenst suck shit, you do.

Besides, you rated b4-4, indeep and wave?? What are you frickin insane?? Those 3 bands truly define sucking shit.

Gabriel

*puts gabrielvox to school

first off, it was a joke about b4-4 and 3 deep and wave. i was simply pointint out that canada has boy bands too.

by saying that i suck shit and rush doesnt, DOESNT make any sense either ya nut. if you want to put me down, at least make some sense while your at it.

FACT: geddy lee has the worst voice of all time.

notice how i said FACT not "personal opinion." that said, my opinions are worth more than yours and i will make sure you see it my way. i live down a one way street.

to the other person who said: "obviously you dont like prog-rock"

*cough

um OBVIOUSLY you dont know any good prog rock if it bit you in the ass, if you consider rush good prog rock. if you want good prog, which is about the only good thing out there other than some techno and electronica or ambient stuff, listen to pink floyd. listen to radiohead. even listen to tool. but most importantly discover some great underground prog thats not in the mainstream. thats the goldmine.

noone comes on to this board and tells me they think rush is good without being harassed.

*encourages all the bleeding hearts out there to take this post with a grain of green salt because im only half serious.

after years of waiting, nothing came.
