I don't think there is any other band that has written so many of my favourite songs of all time. New Orleans Is Sinking, 38 Years Old, Boots Or Hearts, Little Bones, Cordelia, Long Time Running, Three Pistols, Fiddler's Green, The Last Of The Unplucked Gems, Courage, Looking For A Place To Happen, At The Hundredth Meridian, Locked In The Trunk Of A Car, We'll Go Too, Fully Completely, Fifty-Mission Cap, Wheat Kings, Grace Too, Nautical Disaster, Gift Shop, Ahead By A Century, Something On, Bobcaygeon, Fireworks, Escape Is At Hand For The Travellin' Man, My Music At Work, Lake Fever, and It's A Good Life If You Don't Weaken are all pretty much perfect songs as far as I'm concerned. And yet, almost nobody outside of Canada has even heard of them...

I think the best way to explain The Hip's impact to non-Canadians would be like Bruce Springsteen, if New Jersey were the whole country.

Their prime was definitely the early 90's (you could easily argue that Road Apples, Fully Completely, and Up To Here are their three greatest albums and they all came out in a row from 1991-1994), but even post-2000s they've put out some great work (In Violet Light has aged a lot better than its initial reception would indicate, We Are the Same and Man Machine Poem are solid returns to form).

One of the greatest bands of all time, sadly underappreciated outside of Canada. Gord Downie may be my favourite lyricist, and Ahead By A Century is in my top 5 songs ever.

My wife just pointed this out to me: John, Paul, Gord (x2), Rob. They're our Fab Five. If you haven't seen them live, well, you have my regrets.

The Tragically Hip have long been the staple 'Canadian rock band'. While at times this may come across as contrived (forced hockey references abound), the Hip are truly something unique and one that the country has every right to be proud of. Enveloped in this rock band is the enigma of songwriter Gord Downie: part rockstar and part poet. Often overshadowed by the power and intensity of the music, Downie has proven to be one of the most intelligent and challenging songwriters on the planet. The Hip's 1994 alum Day For Night best captures the band at its creative peak, effortlessly balancing accessible rock with poignant and powerful songwriting.

It's so Canadian that even Canadians who love this band, such as 5thbeatle, must criticise them more than anything else. F@ck that... they are easily one of the 20 best bands ever. See them live in their prime and tell me they are not one of the best ever. Period. And they've made seven great albums, at least. And they're not dead yet... like Neil Young... Leonard Cohen.... we're a small country but we are awesome. Ask anyone who knows.

Solid Canadian band, Gord can be a tad narcissistic comparing himself to "Tolstoy on quailudes" is hard to stomach, but their first 6 albums are good nonetheless.

These guys are an institution, and for a decade (90s) led the Canadian rock resurgence. Their outdoor concerts were earthshaking - such energy from the crowd, such emotion in Gordon Downie's voice, such a versatile band; switching from up-tempo rockers that make you want get out on the outdoor rink, to haunting, low key tracks that make you want to change your life. So Canadian, but worthwhile to Americans and the rest of the world. Start with Fully Completely and Up to Here, but they have 12 albums (stick with the pre-2000 work)

Hard to believe that Day for Night is fifth on this list. The Hip are the best Canadian rock band ever and one of the best rock and roll bands ever assembled anywhere and you can suck it if you just don't understand why I say that.
