solyhhit: Nickleback will never be as shiatty, pandering, or talentless as KISS

/The End


No, but they suck because they're actively trying to be on a daily basis.

That's the point.

It's funny. This entire thread is what I expected when Klosterman wrote it. People hate for the sake of hating without weighing merits, etc.

There's no logical discourse, it's just that one person says they suck and another person agrees with it because it's "cool" to do so without any reasoning behind it.

Case in point: Justin Beiber. I don't *hate* Justin Beiber. He has done nothing wrong to earn my ire, other than be a popular pop singer. There are people who do like him. So why should I fault those people?

One of my favorite bands is basically a reformation of a 90's one hit wonder. (Refreshments -> Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers). I'm not going to fault anyone who DOESN'T like them, if it's not their thing, but Nickleback sells out arenas. I just don't get it.

Like what you like.

rickycal78: Folks can hate all they want, but they aren't any worse than any other pop/rock band out there. This line FTFA "A better answer as to why people dislike Nickelback is tautological: They hate them because they hate them. Sometimes it's fun to hate things arbitrarily, and Nickelback has become an acceptable thing to hate." Pretty much sums things up.


Cry more Kid Rock.

thamike: Madbassist1: I love how he can't resist burying them because they called his type out on stage. The butthurt is palpable here.

So are you a Creed fan, or a Nickleback fan?


Neither. I just think babysealclubber was being overly pretentious in his post, and the article writer is trying to get himself over rather than explore the subject matter.

Now as far as being pretentious goes, I currently am listening to Esperanza Spalding. She's a kick ass bassist and hot to boot!

I hate em because I cant turn on my radio without hearing them. At least that's valid.

Oh yes, because Jack White is so untalented. It's okay, you like a shiatty band. I love Journey.


Jack White is untalented as far as guitarists or singers go. I also don't really like his songwriting. People give him more credit than he's due because Rolling Stone has been sucking his dick for 10 years.
 
2012-04-25 02:55:01 PM
Yeah, I hate both these bands, let me share a stupid story bro...

Back when 'You Remind Me' came out it was all over the farking radio. So, It comes on my favorite rock station at the time, ugh, flip over to rock station #2, yep 'You Remind Me' is also playing on that station. Flip over to rock station #3, ahhhhh, relief....for two farking songs and you guessed it, on comes 'You Remind Me'. Add a gf at the time who played the shiat out of their album and guess what? I farking hate Nickelback. I don't think they are the worst band ever, but I am extremely sick of them. Guess that makes me a hipster or something.

I was listening to the radio yesterday and I thought this song was pretty catchy. I look and turns out it's this new Justin Beiber song "Boyfriend." I guess it's not so bad, he is Canadian after all. Gotta support my bros from up north.

His rapping is really bad on that song though. Don't rap, JB.

I remember there was a Gotye hate thread the other day. Half the thread loved him half the thread hated him. Whatever. I like a few songs by every artist pretty much. Even Nickelback and Creed.

Think all you want, but me laying out actual reasons I hate them is not being pretentious. Sorry, I just don't get off on "FARK YEAH" type of rock.

Syllabic: Jack White is untalented as far as guitarists


I completely disagree. Technically wonderful? No. But I look at him the way I do Edge. He creates some real interesting sounds with his guitar, and his approach is fascinating. And he's a great songwriter. I couldn't care less what Rolling Stone thinks either. I honestly don't think I've ever managed to completely go through an issue without growing tired of it.
 
2012-04-25 03:02:01 PM
I saw Incubus in 2007 and they were fan-farking-tastic.

That said, their newest album is an abomination. There are no rock songs on it for some reason.

You pretty much nailed it here - you're not part of the targeted demographic for Beiber as you're likely not an 11 to 17 year-old girl; it makes sense and is entirely predictable that his product doesn't & shouldn't appeal to you.

So when some folks above spend time and posts hating a band that's not targeting their particular demo, it's easy to suspect dogpiling/hipsterism as a motivator.

babysealclubber: I completely disagree. Technically wonderful? No. But I look at him the way I do Edge. He creates some real interesting sounds with his guitar, and his approach is fascinating


I can dig that. And, to be fair to White, he developed a bombastic, distorted guitar sound in part I imagine to compensate for not having a bassist in the Stripes...and I doubt because he lacks the technical proficiency to do anything else. I think there's a myriad of guitarists out there unfairly typecast because they've been loyal to re-creating a certain aesthetic that just best fits whatever they're doing.

LOL the shiat people here on Fark remember from months ago. I can't believe I made enough of a lasting impression on someone that they remember me saying Kid Rock makes some decent music in some Fark thread months ago.

This entire thread reeks of folks hating on things because it's popular and acceptable to do so and it gives them something to interact with others about. There's a lot of music out there I don't like, but there's not a single band or musician/artist/whatever that I just absolutely hate, except maybe Gary Glitter, but that's due to the child pron more than his music.
 
2012-04-25 03:11:10 PM
These two bands are bland and safe. Two things rock and roll should never aspire to be. I don't hate them, I just don't understand their success. But they've clearly figured something out.

/Currently listening to: Dead Kennedys - Let's Lynch the Landlord.

I think he tries really hard to be Neil Young and sometimes comes close to it. I like a few of his songs but most of his catalogue turns me off.

I think Madbassists' point is that many of the arguments you levy against Nickelback could also be applied to the white stripes. Their songwriting is derivative and simplistic. Lyrics are shallow. The biggest difference is that Jack White deliberately sings off-key most of the time. So by forcing himself to be a bad musician (in terms of harmony and correct pitch) he somehow endears himself to you and creates the illusion of depth in his music. Meanwhile Neil Young has been doing exactly the same schtick for 30 years.

I just looked up the lyrics to "Icky Thump." It's a standard rock narrative about an encounter with an attractive woman.

Because he's not a very good guitarist or singer? I've never been impressed with any of his work on a technical or songwriting level. And his singing is (possibly deliberately) atrocious, I don't think you can really defend it.

The guitarist from Creed is a much much much more talented musician than Jack White, actually. Mark Tremonti.

Creed's biggest problem is Scott Stapp. Most people hate Creed because of Scott Stapp. Tremonti has some serious metal chops, but comparing him and Jack White is apples and oranges.

If I thought Nickleback was 'mocking' rock, they would be one of my favorite bands ever. But I think they are serious. Whenever one of their songs comes on I just pretend it is Weird Al and then its brilliant.

If Awesom-O wrote misogynistic rock songs.... just replace Adam Sandler with Nickleback.

I was never a big KISS Fan back in the day, but after working a a design project that featured them I became a fan. I got he impression everything was a big troll to them. They just kept taking things further and further to see where they could go and seemed to have a good time with it. And Ace Frehley could actually write and seems to have talent. Plus Gene Simmons was in Runaway and that gets him a partial pass... but his stupid reality show has used most of the goodwill.

Tremonti can noodle off some serious solos, no doubt, and for him I think it's unfortunate he's been relegated to riding along mostly with Creed & Alter Bridge, but you might as well compare Daft Punk to Tori Amos. It's inherently unfair to take two totally different styles and make a value judgement.

Deduction, but I should have also included psychograhphic to be more precise. As babysealclubber dubbed Nickelback above as "FARK YEAH" rock, the targeted demo/psycho for that brand of music generally doesn't cross over to the type that I've seen inhabiting FARK.

I specifically liked this part of the article:

Chad Kroeger is tenderly coaching the audience on how to properly respond to the next song. "Come on, ladies," he says, "let's pretend you're 13 f[ar]king years old at a Justin f[ar]king Bieber concert."

Um, well, they pretty much are. This is more or less teeny-bopper pop for soccer moms and Tumbleweed waitresses.

Also, has it occurred to any of the trolls,...oops, pardon me, I mean, defenders of Nickelback and Creed, that the main sreason they're hated is because it's too easy to pinpoint their derivative sound? It's like neither band even bothered to rip off Pearl Jam, they just ripped off the bands that ripped off Pearl Jam, aping all the most common characteristics of these bands, like singing like you're trying to take a dump after chain-smoking 3 unfiltered cigarettes?

Who knew that in 2012 Seven Mary Three would be the missing link for modern rock?

I read an interview with Chad whatshisname in Playboy a few years back. He really comes off as a class-A douche bag. He freely admits stealing anything that wasn't nailed down when he was a kid, (and I hate thieves) and makes crude remarks about his whore of the hour right in front of her. He also let's it slip that the band made 5 million dollars off their debut album which tells me he is insecure about his band, his money, and he needs a better agent. Also he's spending his money too quick.

I didn't get that off either of them. And objectively, both bands suck to the point that--even if someone likes them--their suckiness being a foregone conclusion isn't coming from the pretentious side. It's not even their music. Take Limp Bizkit, for example. Talented guitarist, but Limp Bizkit sucks. Sucking is an all encompassing artform. It's almost intangible. Scott Stapp makes Creed suck. And Creed could be any other heavy radio rotation band if not for Scott Stapp.

As the article points out, their existence as band, when dealing with the media, is to constantly answer questions as to why everyone seemingly hates their very existence as a band.

I can't stand them, but I can't blame him for being either a defensive, insecure jackass, or a trolly "yah, I make big bucks and f*ck anything I want. What?" D-bag...whichever he really is.

Exactly. I don't get the hate for Nickelback. I think it's just reflexive and "cool". Nickelback is one of the only bands around these days where when I buy there album, put it on and know it's a safe bet that it will be good until the final note of the last song. Sort of like Pink Floyd. Just put it on and don't even think about changing/skipping any songs.

I hate to say it, because I think I'd like the dude, personally, but the goddamned foo fighters are headed down that pit right now for me at damn near lightspeed.

GOOD LORD KNOCK IT OFF WITH THE farkING FOOS, ALREADY!!!!


Foo Fighters have been there for a while. Frankly, though I don't really dislike the Foo Fighters, I don't really think they sound to wholly different from Nickelback, Creed, etc.. Maybe the Foos have better music taste, but it's generic "why doesn't rock music ROCK any more?" for people who have been out of the music loop for 20+ years.

escherblacksmith: They are all pretty innocuous . . . certainly nothing to write home about . . .

But, it reminds me of this . . . (no it isn't a rick roll)

\\no good band since the Zombies
\*snerk*


Ok, that video got a chuckle out of me. So many singers/musicians lift styles from previous acts out there it's ridiculous.

/laughed out loud the first time I heard Rockstar
//Nickleback has a few OK songs


You can like what I don't like. Doesn't mean I can't have an opinion on it.

That opinion is that I think a random facebook pickle is better than Nickleback.

I thought Creed went away, didn't realize that they would come creeping back like a herpes sore.
