People in BC just can’t get enough of Bryan Adams.

According to a new Insights West online survey, British Columbians voted the “Summer of ’69” rocker as their top pick out of a selection of 85 musicians. Sarah McLachlan came in second, with the Barenaked Ladies rounding out the top three.

Only 10% of British Columbians said they disliked Adams. Justin Bieber, however, didn’t fare as well: nearly 60% of people in BC say they dislike him.

Insights West posted “momentum scores” for each of the artists featured, and Bryan Adam’s strong approval rating gave him a score of +72 (82% liked him, minus the 10% who don’t), but Bieber was the only artist to earn a negative score of -24.

Here are a few of the other artists British Columbians love, along with their momentum scores:

  • Tom Cochrane (+59)
  • The Guess Who (+57)
  • Neil Young (+56)
  • Bachman Turner Overdrive (+55)
  • Leonard Cohen (+53)
  • The Tragically Hip (+51)
  • Joni Mitchell (+50)
