Each CFL Team Songs

There is no doubt that music plays a big role in our world’s past and present.  Many places in the world are proud of a band and or artist who is born and or raised in a City, Town, or Region of their origin. 

And football is no different. 

Here are a few bands and or artists that represent a City and or a Province by birth. Some are born in one place, but also lay claim to another city, etc.

So, let’s have fun with this.  Here are some bands and or artists that should represent each CFL team.

BC

For the BC Lions, Bryan Adams will not be on this list.  Bryan Adams has snubbed Canada on multiple occasions when he was touring in the past. It’s only been in the last 6 – 7 years or so that he started to do concerts in Canada. His attendance has clearly declined and shows as it looks like he pissed off a lot of people. So we’re going with the following:

Loverboy

Loverboy: Turn me Loose. Working for the Weekend.

Trooper: Raise a Little Hell.

54 – 40: I Go Blind. She La. Ocean Pearl.

Chilliwack: Fly at Night. Communication Breakdown.

Calgary

Stampeders

It only makes sense to make the band called Stampeders is Calgary’s choice for a song and a band.

The Stampeders: New Orleans. Running Wild. Sweet City Women.

Edmonton

Brett KIssel

Brett Kissel: We Were That Song. A Few Good Stories.

Saskatchewan

The Sheepdogs

The Sheepdogs: I Don’t Know. Feeling Good. The Way It Is.

Winnipeg

The Guess Who

It’s always debatable what band and or artist from Canada is superior.  It’s safe to say that Winnipeg’s own The Guess Who / Bachman Turner Overdrive is in the same conversation with Toronto’s own Rush.

The Guess Who / Bachman Turner Overdrive: You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet. Share the Land. American Woman. These Eyes. Let It Ride.

Ottawa

Paul Anka

Let’s go oldies for this one.

Paul Anka: Diana. Put Your Head on My Shoulder. Puppy Love.

Montreal

Sam Roberts Band

Sam Roberts: Brother Down. Where Have All the People Gone. Hard Road.

Oscar Peterson: Anything Oscar played was beautiful. The best Jazz artist Canada has produced.

Hamilton

Teenage Head

Junkhouse: Shine. Out of My Head. Praying for the Rain.

Teenage Head: Picture my face.

Toronto

Maestro Fresh-Wes
Rush
Toronto

Let’s start with the band that was called Toronto.

Toronto: What Your Daddy Don’t Know.

Rush: Working Man. Subdivisions. Fly by the Night. 2112. Closer to the Heart.

Maestro Fresh-Wes: Drop the needle.  Let your backbone slide.

Drake:  You and The 6.
