I think you have that wrong. He was at the concert and realized he would never feel good again and threw himself off the edge

Listen I do not pretend to be the individual upon who knows all there is about the popular culture of these days. I do not know the names of all the best bands like Justin Bieber or One Direction and surely do not know any songs by Lady GaGa such as "Born this Way." However I will do one and take up for the band of Nickelback for the moment. Yes perhaps they have not had the same success as for the example the David Matthews Trio or Mitchell Jackson but they are still the band who has endured quite the bit to get to where they are able to suck so badly on the main stage. Imagine waking up each day to know that you are getting paid millions of dollars to be very much bad at something?

For the individual upon this tragic case however he probably was not one who had awareness of the fact that being sucky at the climb would not give you the millions of dollars but would instead give you the OUCHING OL. For this I provide the toast in the name of this individual. Hear here?

It's the only way to tolerate their music.

Don't worry folks, Guy from Nickelback: Private Eye is on the case!

"40 Foot Gorge" would be a pretty okay metal band name.

At least he was trying not to pay to see Nickelback

hating nickelback is such a cliched shorthand for lazy people to indicate that they have musical taste, almost as bad as just saying "i like all music EXCEPT COUNTRY LOL." but you know what, if you don't like nickelback, there's a really really easy solution: murder nickelback. go up to canada and find the lamest looking chain bar and grille you can find, walk in, invariably find chad kroeger sitting at the bar yelling at women and stab him in the kidney. then, not only will you not have to listen to nickelback anymore, you will be treated to hilarious tribute albums featuring your favorite indie artists ironically covering that one nickelback song over and over again.

I died in a remote fjord crevasse to see *my* favorite band. I doubt you've heard of them.

Nickelback already beat them to it. I assume they're doing it ironically. That sort of butt-rock can't actually be serious, right?

I just found out that there is a malicious email attachment going around that says it contains links to a zipped file containing the new Nickelback album.

PC users should be aware that clicking the links will install a zipped file on their computer which contains the new NIckelback album.

Nickelback's "How You Remind Me", the song that made them popular for the first time, debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 the day of September 9, 2001 (#75 if you're curious).

Presumably, the song hit international English-language radio stations at about the same date, allowing certain Al-Qaeda members to hear the song in passing and think, "Ugh, THIS is what those filthy Americans think is quality art? They deserve to be taught a lesson..."

Then, 9/11 happened. All because of damn Nickelback.

This fall is how you remind Kevin Beaudette of what he really is. And it's not like Nickleback to say sorry, Kevin will be waiting for a different story.
 
2012-07-25 06:10:52 PM
I don't really get the hate. I like some of their songs. However, I've never heard them live so maybe that's where I'm ignorant.

Pfft. *My* favorite band is nowhere near mainstream enough for an outdoor venue. I died when I tripped and impaled myself on a clothing rack in the storeroom of the Old Navy where they were holding their concert. Ironically, of course.

They are pretty obscure, I doubt you've heard of them.

Nickelback is just generic shiatty hard rock for dudebros. I really don't get what makes them so much worse than all the other quadrillion generic shiatty dudebro bands.

They're just the most popular band from that shiat tier genre, so they get the most well-earned hate.

Pfft. You guys are so lame, I was about to sneak in to see my favorite band, but then I realized the fact that I had to sneak in meant they were too mainstream, so I walked around the corner and discovered this really cool band having their first ever jam session together.

I died when the garage door closed too quickly and broke my neck.

CSB:

Me and some other guys were trying to get into a house-party one summer at college and they turned the 5 of us away at the door because they wanted $5/each and we weren't about to pay to enter a party.

So we head around the block (row homes) to try to sneak in through the back. Behind their back fence was a small section of heavily-wooded area before a separate alley; before we even get there we see -- someone -- tossed an empty keg over their back fence. We just took it back around front and gave it to them for admission.

Then when we got inside there was a full keg, tapped, sitting in an empty upstairs room (it was still early evening). No one around, so we closed the door, encircled the keg, and started playing Wales Tales. Whenever someone came and opened the door -- we had a spare cup -- we'd throw it on the tap and tell them the keg was kicked and send them downstairs.

Not really. Hating Nickelback is akin to people saying that they hate eating dog-shiat. They're not trying to impress anyone with their "obscure musical tastes", they're just indicating that, well, they don't eat dog-shiat.

oh i apologize if my last sentence muddied my point- i wasn't saying that nickelback-hate is a way to impress, i'm saying it's a really lazy way for people who aren't really that into music to safely discuss music, much like saying, oh i like all music except country.

It's generic, cliche ridden pop rock pulp. Not the worst band ever, but yes, bad.

HOWEVER, why isn't this standard applied for pop/hip hop artists as well?
There is a large assortment of barely literate, inane bullshiat permeating top 40, yet no artist I can think receives the same scorn.
 
2012-07-25 06:43:44 PM
He should have used the sewers to sneak in like Corey and Trevor.
 
2012-07-25 06:44:19 PM
He wanted to be a rock star.

I place Justin Beiber higher on the list of "make it stop" music than Nickleback. He is already past his 15 minutes and unfortunately still in the spotlight, but no worries some other annoying barely teen kid will fill that void for the record labels in a second.

No charges have been filed.

They felt the pain+embarrassment are punishment enough.

Should a guy trying to sneak in be called a "patron"? And here I thought I knew what that word meant.

As my cover band and numerous other musicians say:

"The more you drink, the better we sound."
