I think this is the furthest I've ever seen this conversation go without any mention of Loverboy. I don't know if that's a good sign or a bad sign.

TFH: Who is the greatest Canadian rock star?
TFA: Who is your single favorite band or artist to come from Canada?

Those are two entirely different questions.

In the second category, in addition to those already listed in the thread, I'll throw Bif Naked, Paul Brandt, Great Big Sea, 54-40, Wide Mouth Mason, and Bedouin Soundclash into the mix.
