Simple question: how many Canadian rock artists can you think of?

More than I knew, after Wiki-ing the subject. Here's a list:

(Feel free to add to this; there's just too many for me to include at once. It wouldn't hurt to add a YouTube clip of whoever you add.)

Rush

Any such GeekList begins with this trio.

As for the video, I chose a relatively obscure song that I just really like. Enjoy!

I'll admit: I did not know that Neil Young was Canadian.

Here's one of his best-known:

Another artist I did not recognize as being a neighbor from the North.

I've always loved this song:

One of many Canadian artists in my collection. I love Brian Wilson, The Old Apartment, and of course, this smash hit:

Alanis Morrisette

In my mind, a one-album wonder ... but what an album! (This is said with respect to Uninvited and Thank U.)

A lot to choose from off Jagged Little Pill; this is my favorite among the 'released' songs.

Nickelback

I'll say it here. I am a HUGE fan of Nickelback. In particular, I like the harder stuff; in other words, songs that don't get played on VH1.

Since I couldn't find a good video for either Because of You or Side of a Bullet, I'm going with this one:

To me they sound like Nickelback ... except no one else I know knows about them. Too bad; this is another artist I am greatly into.

This is a more recent song, and a personal favorite for lifting my spirits:
