The Best of Mid-90s (Mostly) Canadian Post-Grunge Alt-Rock (Seriously!)

Listening to Buffalo rock stations during my college days in the mid-90s led to a few inevitable guilty pleasures. Of course I didn’t think that at the time - back then these songs just flat out rawked. What this short mix proves is that Canadians did post-grunge radio rock much much better than, say, American bands like Seven Mary Three or whoever. Back in the day I had no problem saying these songs were fucking great. Today, with only a hint of irony, is no different. “Starseed”? Are you fucking kidding me?

I just saw Matthew Good in Detroit last night - I will admit I hadn't heard of him before, but he very much won me over. Growing up in Detroit, I recognize many of the bands you have here from my radio worshiping days... :)
