It’s Canadian Film Day! Let’s take a look at 10 great musical moments from 10 great Canadian ’90s movies!

Hard Core Logo

“Who The Hell Do You Think You Are?” by Hard Core Logo is one of the best Canadian songs of the ’90s, or ever.

Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy

“I’m Gay!” One of many great musical moments in the only flick from the Kids.

Whale Music

“Claire” by The Rheostatics is lip-synced by the late Maury Chaykin and it’s weird as fuck.

The Sweet Hereafter

Sarah Polley sings the Tragically Hip’s “Courage” in this one and it’s pretty haunting.

Highway 61

Satan tells a little girl she’ll never be a musician because she’ll probably be fat and a cashier. Woah!

Last Night

Tracy Wright dances around her empty office singing along to Burton Cummings’ “Glamour Boy” while she waits for the world to end.

Naked Lunch

Howard Shore’s theme is kind of better than Cronenberg’s movie. Kinda.

Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould

That scene where that one guy plays a record.

The Hanging Garden

Ashley MacIsaac is in this but I can’t find a clip, so here’s a clip of some kids talking about sex or drugs or something.

The Red Violin

It’s about a red violin.
