He's a Coldplay fan.

An inexcusable calumny; shame on them!
 
2012-09-12 10:24:16 AM  
So, Celine Dion then?
 
2012-09-12 10:25:09 AM  
Thank god, our long national nightmare is over. But remember, my friends, Nickleback is still out there. They could strike at any time. Being prepared is the only defense.
 
2012-09-12 10:27:47 AM  
Ugh, does this mean he's a Creed fan now?

Nickelback is awesome!

Rob Ford's not picky. Everything he sees has sandwich potential.
 
2012-09-12 10:31:03 AM  
But does he like Bareback?
 
2012-09-12 10:32:35 AM  
Now that we got the important material covered, we can move on with the negotiations, right?
 
2012-09-12 10:33:42 AM  
At least they didn't claim he likes Cold-

Lone Stranger: He's a Coldplay fan.


Oh damn you guys are quick.
 
2012-09-12 10:35:09 AM  
I'm pretty sure he's a Reel Big Fish fan. Pretty sure he sent an album of theirs to his political enemies or something like that.
 
2012-09-12 10:35:36 AM  
Came to say Coldplay and see it's at the top of the thread, very nice. Their most popular song was stolen from Creeky Boards.
 
2012-09-12 10:36:09 AM  
Wow. As though it wasn't enough of an embarrassment to actually suck so much as Nickelback does, now politicians are publicly stating that they don't like them. Why must such a great band as Nickelback suffer such a one-two punch?

Yes.

What is cool is that the person who made the sign now has bragging rights.

I would have at least felt better if had stated that while he did not favor Nickelback, he does like Steely Dan, Dave Matthews, or Lindsey Buckingham

"As this thing unfolds, I'm not sure if there was any copying going on," he said. "I think it's possible that Coldplay and I are just heavily influenced by 'The Legend of Zelda [a fantasy adventure computer game].

Wait, they both copied The Legend of Zelda?

Yes.


I seriously had no idea about that. Hah!

What does Nickelback mean? On the back (or tails side) of a Canadian nickel is a beaver.
Is that what they were going for?
 
2012-09-12 11:02:27 AM  
I'm not a big fan of most of their stuff, but I was at a show that they were part of, and I do have to say that they have class.
 
2012-09-12 11:02:56 AM  
Everybody knows he really likes Hootie and the Blowfish.

Supposedly one of them worked in a coffeehouse where customers would get a nickel back in change more often than not.

I'm pretty sure that mayors of Chicago are not allowed to like Dave Matthews Band after the incident.

/was living in Chicago at the time, and thought it was hilarious

I loved the first Spider-Man movie but that song still makes me want to punt kittens like footballs. Still have to see the latest Spider-flick.

Dude even the Teabaggers have more decency that to accuse him or even Obama of that.

Selected gem from the comments: "I can't see how People think we are a christian nation with all the violence and hate we have here"

Strange how most religions are actually spreading hate and condoning violence...
