Popular music in British Columbia is strongly associated with the city of Vancouver. As Canada's third largest city Vancouver's rock and pop scene is one of the most influential in the country. It is also, like Toronto, a common destination for musicians from other parts of the country and from the United States. Additionally, Vancouver has been especially prominent in genres, such as punk rock and hip hop, which tend to be associated with larger cities. Many significant artists have hailed from cities and towns across British Columbia.
