Happy Birthday Canada! Our nation of hosers turns 150, and being massive music lovers here at Tour Bus Entertainment (obviously), we thought it would be fun to put together a list 150 amazing songs from all the world class talent we have here in Canada.

Let’s just state right off: this is no “Top 150 of all time” or anything like that. This list is simply 150 amazing Canadian songs that our team here at Tour Bus selected.

Honestly, we could have done a 200 or 300 song list just as easy. But we think you’ll agree, these songs are pure Canada eh? And I’m pretty sure everyone will know them all. We covered rock, pop, country and metal with this. And remember, they are in no particular order of preference. We just scrambled it all up. So check it out, have fun, and good day eh!
