Canada has a strong history of rock n roll music starting as far back as the 1960’s with artists like Neil Young, Bruce Cockburn, and Gordon Lightfoot. In the 1970’s one of the more prominent and well-respected rock bands of Canada was the eclectic rock outfit known as Rush. Another great 70’s act was BTO also known as Bachman Turner Overdrive. Even during that 70’s to 80’s transition, there were a few staple artists such as Loverboy, Corey Hart, and Bryan Adams.
The 1980’s were a unique game-changing era of rock music in Canada. Until the mid-1960s, little consideration was paid to shake by Canadian day by day daily papers aside from as news or curiosity. Amid the 1970’s the scene started to challenge that of some other music that was popular in America. The 1980s saw Canada bolster and advance a hefty chunk of music which it could call its movement for genuine innovation.

Music features accepted a noteworthy part in the advancement of pop shake recordings in the 1980s for US introduction. Features delivered numerous standard pop-rockers that saw tremendous achievement in and outside of Canada. Achievement in the bigger US market remained the significant objective of most if not all, post-1970 Canadian rock acts.
Any objective set was honestly built to succeed with some more noteworthy artists who could sustain the charts. Among them were Bryan Adams, Aldo Nova, Loverboy, Saga, Red Rider, Corey Hart, Alannah Myles, Lee Aaron, Tom Cochrane, Honeymoon Suite, Haywire, Doug and the Slugs and Glass Tiger. Also, that same era delivered the nation cowpunk style of k.d. Lang. Bryan Adams would rise as Canada’s golden boy of the 80s. He was honored the Order of Canada, and the Order of British Columbia and enlisted into Canada’s Walk of Fame in 1998 for his commitment to famous music and his excellent songwriting. Additionally noted was the rise of Loverboy, who collected various hit tunes in Canada and the United States, making four multi-platinum collections.
