"If something's getting punched, smashed, broken or otherwise causing chaos, Nickelback is usually the background soundtrack to it," Paynter says.

That's my usual reaction to Nickelback songs.

To me, Nickelback is the zen of music. Because it is nothing. It is completely empty. Many times I have been near a radio or television that was playing Nickelback, but I have never heard a Nickelback song in my entire life. Nickelback to me sounds no different than a still wind. It is void of emotion, thought, and soul. Nickelback can only be heard by those who have yet to come to terms with those three aspects of themselves, and it can only be enjoyed by those who lack those three aspects altogether.

I walked into a supermarket the other day and Rick Astley was playing over the speakers. I couldn't figure out what I had done to be rick rolled like that, but whatever it was, I surely fell for it.

Is there now enough hatred out there that it make me a hipster to come out and say that, yes, I like Nickleback and Olive Garden and Miller Lite and Target and Big Bang Theory?

So, because they have money and fans, it proves they don't suck?

I'm not seeing it

I didn't like Nickleback before it was cool to not like Nickleback.

Chabash: I always confuse them with coldplay... I'm never sure which one I'm supposed to dislike.

We're supposed to hate bands other people have heard of already.

Christian Bale: So, let me get this straight. We hate Nickelback, however the joke's on us because they are money-grubbing corporate sellouts BY DESIGN.

Earth to NPR: that is exactly why we hate them in the first place.

I hate them because they're lowest-common-denominator "rock". That and their lead singer always sounds like he's trying to squeeze out a huge turd.

My daughter told me that a Nickelback song was possible for their senior song.
She says, that if the internet has taught her nothing else, it has taught her that THAT would be unacceptable.
