You can buy Nickleback albums online for between $1-$7. A package of blank CDs is around $10-$20. Nickleback would make more money if they'd just shut the fark up.

I think we've all reached the point where we would pay them to shut the fark up.

One of my favorite stories ever came from someone who was in a sports memorabilia store and saw a football signed by NYJ quarterback Neil O'Donnell for $20, down the aisle from a brand new football which was $30.

As someone who grew up in Pittsburgh and lived through the Neil O'Donnell Superbowl Quarterback years, I'd like to thank you for reminding me that he existed. You farking prick.

I will never understand the Nickleback hate. Yes, they are a completely mediocre band, but so are 1,000,000 others with lower production values (talent is a loaded word) that are arguably worse. Why them?

An hour of complete and utter silence would sound better than anything Nickelback made, even a song that was just them silently holding their instruments.

It's how the internet works, if something is popular you have to hate it. Also, people can't stand that they're popular and have sold millions of records, yet nobody has ever heard of their favorite band.

i must say, whether you like their music or not, if you were to see nickelback live you would have to admit they put on a good show

i took my wife about 4 years ago, and i was impressed by their show (with its impressive pyrotechnics), their stage presence (you can tell they are having fun on stage and are grateful for their success), and the fact that the people standing in front of the stage were given free jaeger bombs by simply showing i.d. proving they were 21+. of course, we were in the cheapest of cheap seats, about 3 or 4 rows from the very tip top at the end of the arena...but even that far away we felt the heat from the flames on stage

Henry Rollins recently did an interview talking about the current state of the music industry and summed up how a lot of us feel.

I'd rather listen to a bunch of guys with low production values making music for the sake of making music than listen to soulless corporate rock.

I wonder if Avril will guest on this?  Divide by zero and the World ends!
 
2013-10-17 10:47:54 AM  
Nickelback is factory written and factory produced karaoke that could very well have been performed by the guy 2 cubes down from you.  It's probably OK to say you like some of their songs - cheesy as they are, some songs can be catchy.  I think the big resistance comes from when a band somehow outgrows what it deserves.  There's room for Nickelback on soccer mom radio.  Fine.

But when they start filling arenas and get onto soccer mom radio every hour and make guest appearances on TV and release duets with whoever and people are wearing their t-shirts and buying their posters - and I look at the body of their work and try to take some perspective of their machine, it pisses me off.  In my mind, they haven't earned what they have.

For me, their similarity score most closely resembles Matchbox 20 / Rob Thomas.

Nickelback doesn't suck more or less than any of the other crap being played on the radio today.

no, not correct at all, really. they didn't whine one bit. i'm really not trying to "white knight" nickelback...i mean, i do like a couple of their songs, but overall i think they are bland and incredibly overplayed on all media, but i enjoyed their show more than i enjoyed kiss's show. for one thing, kiss is 99% theatrics, 1% talent. nickelback actually exhibited some level of talent...really not much theatrical b.s., basically just loud rock and lots of 'splosions.

then again i only saw kiss because my first wife and i were in n.c. about an hour's drive away, and poison was opening...i wanted to see poison, she wanted to see kiss...i like poison, she doesn't...vise versa with kiss.

Nickleback doesn't bother me if I hear one song every once in a while, it's just that they all sound the same.  They're Creed except I'm pretty sure the lead singer doesn't think he's Jesus.

I'm gonna go on record agreeing, but not without a CSB!

I saw them back in spring 2002, when I was a college freshman.  I was in a bad mood because I went hoping to hang with this cool chick in one of my classes, and when I got there she was with a few of her friends.  Not cute girls, no - a bunch of skeezy-looking rednecks.  She was more interested in hanging with them and I knew I made a terrible error in judgment.  The huge line of people waiting to get in?  All of them were skeezy-looking rednecks.  More of them than there were students.  The opening acts, Injected and Default, sucked.  So me and a friend chilled throughout the show, not having much fun until Nickleback came on.  They were legitimately fun to watch and made the night worthwhile.
A couple days later I got a panicked call from the editor of the school newspaper's entertainment section (where I worked) saying nobody was at the show, and could I write an article?  I said sure, and wrote about how all the rednecks made the hot-as-balls auditorium smell like a giant ashtray and that the concert mostly sucked.  The editor loved it, but then somebody tacked on a headline that said "Nickleback concert draws too many townies."  I did not use the word 'townie' in my article.  The townies were PISSED, demanded a retraction - but it was our final issue of the semester, and there was nothing we could do about it.  That headline came back to bite me more than once throughout the rest of college.

around the same time as your show, or maybe a couple of years prior, my friend was working security at a state fair's concert stage (minnesota? his gf at the time was from mn, so i think it was there). he messaged me saying that nickeback was one of the "rockingest shows ever"! i said really? nickelback? he said YES, NICKELBACK! of course it was many years later when i finally found out what he meant.

i've seen plenty other "average" bands (been to a LOT of fests where i didn't want to lose a good spot for a good band later in the day...and seen a lot of mediocre opening acts) who did not seem like they were enjoying their job. i've seen good & great bands who also made tons of money who seemed like they weren't enjoying it.

I'll say it. Nickelback had a few good songs, back in their early years.

Leader of Men

Just Four

I noticed that none of these are on this compilation though.

These guys turned from an up and coming rock band to a mediocre, radio-friendly pop bag of shiat. Made millions doing it though, so all the power to them.

Id rather listen to music that I enjoy without worrying about whatever stupid label you hipsters decide to attach to it. Its more fun that way. Sometimes you want to get deep with shiat. Sonetimes you just want to sing along to some cheap anthem rock while you're screamin down the highway.

Ugh.  Indeed.  I used to write (freelance) for a lot of newspapers.  Some small ones, some big ones.  I wish people understood that the author almost never writes the headline.  In fact, they're almost never consulted on or asked for approval on the headline.  I've been burned a few times too.

I understand that it's hip on fark to hate Nickleback.  But where is the hipster-hate line drawn?  Is it OK to like Incubus, or are they too Nicklebacky?  What about 3 Doors down?  3 Days grace?  How about Collective Soul?

Luckily for you there are thousands of shiatty bands that fit the description of the former. I realize that statement looks like I'm defending Nickelback, but no. I just don't mind seeing bands w/low production values not getting huge financial success. Go ahead, play airhead rock that millions of people like and up the audio quality, then tell me you don't like the shiatloads of money you're making.
