The Ultimate Canada 150 Playlist: Rock Out This July 1

You’ve just cracked open a Molson. Or perhaps you’re enjoying a Caesar (created in Calgary circa 1969).

As the sun sets over the lake, you pull your Hudson’s Bay blanket tightly around your shoulders and cast your gaze across our home and native land.

But once the fireworks have finished and you’ve sung ‘O, Canada!’ for the fifteenth time, how on earth will you fill the silence?

Well, luckily for you, we’ve rounded up some of the most seminal Canadian artists…and some of the less groundbreaking musicians from the Great White North.

For your listening pleasure, we give you: The Ultimate Canada 150 Playlist. Yes, Tom Stompin’ Connors is in there, and yes some of the “artists” on the list are cheesy (Celine Dion may or may not have made the list…) But we figured there was no better time to celebrate all the musical Canucks to have graced the airwaves on Canada’s 150th birthday.
