...what they mean when they say "They sound very Canadian" when referring to a band?

I sometimes recommend a couple bands to friends across the border (Thousand Foot Krutch, Dream Jefferson, etc) and alot of them say they sound very Canadian but whenever I ask them to explain they cant seem to put it into words.

Anyone want to help clarify? What exactly does that mean because I hear no difference between American and Canadian music.

That's not a thing. Your American friends are probably just morons who think they're being funny.

Well, technically Canadian is American, after all, America's not a country, but a continent, or rather a dual-continent, of which Canada is part of, as is everything from top of Alaska to the bottom tip of Chile, so...

Ah. So, it's just an American thing Americans do to troll Canadians? Cuz I've heard it multiple times from different people over the years.

Alrightythen. Thanks for clearing that up ;)

Well, tbh, I learned in geography at school that there's 5 oceans and 6 continents. The 6 continents being Europe, Africa, Asia, Oceania, Antarctica and America. I had never heard of North America and South America being described as two separate continents until some years ago. I've always seen them as sub-continents instead. So why is America a sole continent for Europeans and not for Americans and Canadians? Odd. And I guess technically Europe and Asia could be considered the same continent? I mean there is the Eurasia term.

I think geographic definitions are quite political at times. When people talk about Asians they don't mean people from the Gulf or Israel but people from Japan, China, Thailand, etc.

But yeah, I'll always refer to NA/CA/SA as the Americas or the American continent. Can't help it.

They're definately the same in geography and geology, but not always in anthropology. Or didn't you think of why there's CONCACAF and CONMEBOL?
