    Mon Dieu. The greatest Canadian rocker (solo though in various mostly American bands) is of course Neil Young. So any arguments as to band are of course secondary to that fact.Report

      Good call. If Scott were here he’d probably say them. My sense is that real Canadians give title of best Canadian band to The Hip. I’m not a real Canadian, –hell at this point I’m in Levitical status (“resident alien”)…don’t any Canadians touched that hanging fruit left after the gleaning, it’s mine mofos!!!

      iow, my choice of best canadian band reflects my american-ness.Report
