From Teenage Head to the Arkells, one thing's for sure: Hamilton rocks.

For the next seven days, CBC Music, the new digital station, is celebrating music from the Hammer. It's created a special dedicated stream featuring Hamilton acts from today and the past 40 years. 

Click on this CBC Music link to listen to a special stream that will be live 24/7 until next Friday, May 18.

The Hamilton Rocks stream was created by CBC Music producers to coincide with the launch of the new CBC Hamilton digital service.

CBC Hamilton is also working on a series of profiles featuring Hamilton artists who are creating new and inspiring music in the city right now, across all genres.

Each day of the week, check the site for a feature on a new Hamilton band.
