Let them fight.

The music industry just doesn't get it and, apparently, never will.

ASCAP is the HOA of the music universe.

I like the idea of charging the music industry for their music getting into our ears without our permission.  This would have solved a lot of our Nickelback and Imagine Dragons problems.

The NFL earns my ire for their absurd stance on Super Bowl gatherings while the music industry earns my ire for delaying the proper release of The Wonder Years with the original music.

You are a wise man.

I like when people bash Nickelback because they're always so over the top with it because they think they're supposed to be. Somebody bought their stuff, definitely not the cool kids who hate them now though.

I don't look down upon you though, not for that reason at least. I bought that Haddaway album so we all make poor decisions at times, or at least choices which remain fine for the time they were made but not ones which would be repeated in the present day. I promise not to cast derision in your direction should you put that Chad Kroeger poster back up like we each know you want to but are terrified your friends might see so you don't.

Name a single Nickelback song with the permanence or cultural cachet of "What is Love?".

You may not want to defend your choice that day, but I will.

How does music playing in the background harm the rightsholders to said music? No one is not going to buy that Lorde single because they heard in in the background of a video. If anything, they are getting free publicity. It's like inverted payola.

The music industry has never been particularly reasonable regarding copyright law and fair use.  Given that the NFL remains one massive cash cow that they could milk for an indefinite period of time, I'm honestly surprised they haven't started pulling this sort of thing earlier.

Because, technically, if you play music in a commercial setting, you're supposed to pay royalties. I don't know, however, if you just play music on the radio or SiriusXM if you'd have to pay royalties since they're being paid by the broadcaster. Either way, shaking down the NFL is a way to get some money short term but probably isn't a great idea long term.

Oh don't get me wrong, I'm defending the choice I made on that day instead of randomly attacking Haddaway. I'm trying to get the other fellow to be more comfortable in his own skin as he grinds on his Chad Kroeger plush doll in between attacking Nickelback in various places on the web.

As a response to your initial sentence however, I was immensely disappointed that I could not find a pic of the Kroeger photograph meme with that Haddaway album cover in the frame.

I will concede that "What is Love?" would very likely have a higher Q Score than any single Nickelback song, but I will posit that Nickelback themselves has a higher Q Score than Haddaway.

If anyone anywhere is making money, the music industry will be there to figure out if they can work their way into it somehow even if it represents a net detriment to artists.

Of all the nonsense I've seen here, I've never seen someone defend Nickelback and follow up with any measure of indignance.  For that, you have my shocked face and my pity.  A man of your obvious advanced age should have a better legacy.  Nevertheless, you have been Farkied, Mrs Kroeger

Nickelback was Canada's answer to Limp Bizkit.  Neither band was bad, per se.  They both had talent and some decent songs, but both were pushed and marketted by labels further than their talent would've (or arguably should've) taken them.  Brittany Speares and MC Hammer are also examples of this.  Their saturation into a market that didn't necessarily want nor care for them led them to becoming the punchline of jokes (warranted or not)

I've had a good life, a noble one where I've made the world a better place. To know that I threw it all away defending Nickelback, to have cemented that act as the first sentence in my obituary's second paragraph, is an awful feeling.
