We built this city on rock ’n’ roll

Toronto is certainly a city of neighbourhoods, but it’s also a city of tunesmiths. Aside from an ’80s band named Toronto, however, musical references to the city and its enclaves are usually a little more subtle. We rooted around in the lyrics of Toronto bands (and those of a few bands who happen to like coming here) in order to come up with a bunch of meaningful theme songs for our favourite ’hoods.* (*Neighbourhoods as defined by The Grid, because that’s how we roll.)
