Best Canadian Rock Bands

List Criteria: Only bands or rock musicians who are from Canada

Over the years, Canada has produced some of the finest rock bands in the world. Though the Canadian rock scene doesn't get as much acclaim as that in the U.S. and UK, Canadian rock bands are some of the most popular in the world. There's a nice mix of famous Canadian bands across all rock genres and many of these groups have had international hits and have toured across the globe. What separates Canadian rock from others is how it has shaped various subgenres of rock that includes progressive rock, pop punk, heavy metal and indie rock. 

So, what are the best Canadian rock bands? Anyone who is familiar with Canadian rock knows that there's a treasure trove of talent in the Great White North. That's why you'll see the likes of international superstars like Rush, Neil Young, Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene and Nickelback on here in addition to Canadian bands like Three Days Grace, Matthew Good Band, Our Lady Peace and Billy Talent. There are a few things you can argue about Canadian rock, but the thing that's indisputable is how influential Canadian rock bands are on the rest of the world.

That said, it's up to you to determine what is the best Canadian rock band. If you notice that a band is missing from this list, feel free to add them. This list answers the questions "who are the best Canadian rock bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest Canadian rock musician ever?" If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular Canadian rock bands that you might've heard of.
