Ah yes, Nickelback -- the other n-word.

Okay, fine. NOW I hate Nickelback. That goddam song....

I decided to look at the photograph bite the bullet and listen to it.  It's a solid 'meh' from me.  Sounds nothing like Nickelback, but more like generic metal.  However, that's not my biggest gripe.  That goes to the fact they didn't even bother with half the lyrics.

I have several relatives who would often say celebrities need to stay out of politics that would forget that saying when Charlie Daniels started saying stupid shiat.

Indeed, they do.

Primus cover is great, although they suck.

Frog Leap may not always be my thing, but the guy just seems to have so damned much fun doing stuff, and he's decent to listen to.

I like both, although Primus's might be a bit more polished.

I do like that one song Nickelback played in Portugal.  The fans thought it "rocked", too:

Only Nickelback could make me root for the devil to come out the victor in that song.

David Allen Coe more than made up for the 30 seconds I wasted listening to Nickelback before I had enough

That is absolutely not David Allen Coe. This is what DAC sounds like.

He is also, unfortunately, incredibly racist, so he would never sing that song.

In his defense, he did record the greatest country song ever written...

It's worse. The bridge is particularly ridiculous. It also features yellawolf.

This is my vote for best cover of The Devil went down to Georgia.  Brazen Angel.  Also, their cover of Eastbound and Down is excellent as well.
