Yeah. They look exactly how you'd expect.
Jagged Little Pill may have made her the biggest act in the world, but at 16 she dropped he self titled debut that had Canadians busting out their best early 90s dance moves.
Even though nearly all of us have seen her grace our TV screens every single Christmas since being born, she's barely recognizable here.
'Remember' is a single from Adams' eponymous debut which was released in 1980. Dude's a vampire.
She was 13 here. Her manager at the time was pretty much 40. They're married now.
Operative word being 'kid.'
Yes, I'm aware this is their second record and technically they were still going by the dual moniker Chad Allan and The Expressions (Guess Who?)...so back off, music nerds. This picture was just too amazing not to use.
It's impossible to find Kardi's first video, 'On wid da show' online. I suspect it's because of this hairstyle he was sporting right here.
"Hey look guys, I'm Canadian. No, I mean I'm *really* Canadian."
Lest we forget that before crossing over, K.d. Lang was country as hell.
Honestly, this is how everybody remembers them. Lesson here - cultivate a beard for a decade or two and you'll never age.
Mr. Young was always an intense gentleman.
Although just 33 here, the always cerebral Cohen looks like your principal mentally willing you to try harder in class.
This is how cool The Hip are - they've barely changed their look but somehow, with them, that's alright.
It’s always a kick to see what people looked like way back in the day. If you were there for it, then it’s nostalgia. If not, then it’s probably the opportunity to laugh (lovingly!) at how ridiculous they looked. And while your dad’s 1980’s perm is a riot, seeing what stars looked like in their early days holds a special place in our hearts. But why go halfway, looking for any old picture that was taken a few years ago? Let’s go right back to the beginning – here are some Canadian music legends as they looked when their very first albums were released.
