Oh Canada...you just made me barf!

Post by Canucker »

Just for the hell of it i typed Canada Grunge into the search engine and it came up with a Wikipedia list of "Post Grunge" Canadian acts....I guess it just shows how off the mark mainstream is and how it can ruin stuff.... Of the entire list I recognize only two bands worth listening to (Our Lady Peace...first album only please and Pluto...a decent powerpop band from back in the day)......the rest of the list includes Allanis Morisette, Avril Lavine, Nickleback.... I guess since bands like Creed and Bush X are considered "post grunge" by many people it really is a classification to puke on but I never thought Avril came along early enough to fall into this category...if anyone is into editing wikipedia you should just edit "Post Grunge" out of existance! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Ca ... unge_bands

I recognized a few names on there. Canada may have not produced many good musicians, let's remember two things:

1. Canada is Neil Young's homeland.

2. Some of the hottest women ever are from Canada. KEEP PRODUCIN' CANADA!

HAPPY CANADA DAY!

Canada has produced some amazing musicians...its just that they don't get recognized. The way the music industry works here is quite awful. Geography doesn't help when it comes to a tour circuit and the weather doesn't help that either. Theres a great book on the Toronto Punk scene from the late 70's titled Treat Me Like Dirt....after reading it you figure out for yourself that it should be titled... why Canadian bands don't succeed.

p.s. Neil Young is lame.

I've decided that Spencer is not a true Canadian. He's more along the lines of the child that doesn't flow with the maple syrup lovin', Neil Young respectin' Canadians.

Canada made Leonard Cohen, so they are forgiven for the shitty post-grunge.
How can I begin anything new with all of yesterday in me?
