In honour of the Roar of the Rings, the top eight Canadian curling bands:
8. April Line
7. Brush 
6. Great Big Tee
5. Men Without Hacks
4. The Sweepdogs
3. Nickelrunback
2. Bachman-Inturn Overdrive
1. The Tragically Chipped


  1. You may see this list reprinted in a different order. I often give my sporting friends the option of adding local emphasis. So a Saskatchewan paper may want to move up The Sweepdogs (Sheepdogs).

  2. In case you are wondering (alphabetically): April Wine, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Great Big Sea, Men Without Hats, Nickelback, Rush, The Sheepdogs, The Tragically Hip.

  3. These are hilarious. VG RJ. Men without Hacks!

  4. April Wine (Line) ... now that takes me back to high school days! Very good RJ

  5. You and me both, Len: April Wine had so many hits: Drop Your Guns, Oowatanite, You Could Have Been A Lady, Like A Lover, Like A Song, I’m On Fire For You, Baby, Bad Side Of The Moon, I Wouldn’t Want To Lose Your Love, You Won’t Dance With Me, Tonite Is A Wonderful Time To Fall In Love, Sign of the Gypsy Queen, Just Between You and Me

  6. Brilliant stuff RJ. I'm American and I know all but one of these bands. Why haven't Canuck papers picked this up?

  7. I agree. Lots of laughs RJ. I enjoyed these as much as your Beatles curling hits. And like Len, April Wine takes me back. So does Men Without Hacks - Pop Goes the World.
