Good picks, eh?

Poll is irrelevant, there's no Justin Bieber.


Kidding around of course; I voted Grimes. I don't even believe myself there, Neil Young or Leonard Cohen probably are the best Canadian acts of all time. I just can't help it; she's a rare act about whom I can really say I'm a fan.

I voted for Carly Rae Jepsen, but I think my favorite might be Avril Lavigne or Howard Shore (composer for Lord of the Rings).
The realest feel - "I can't sleep, it's too hot."

I'm just amazed that the vote's split between 5 bands/artists and Arcade Fire have no votes yet.

I hesitated between Grimes and Arcade Fire. Not for long, though.

I wanted to vote Godspeed You! Black Emperor, but unfortunately they are not even on the list.

I didn't even know they were Canadian.
