Agreed! They've really honed their musicianship and found their musical niche since I was first (forcibly) exposed to them in high school.

I'm amazed at the sheer hatred out there for them on the internet.

I'm not a fan, but I don't understand how so many people openly despise them. There are plenty of far worse musical acts who take themselves far more seriously than Nickelback.

It's like it became the hip thing to hate them, but in 2012 nobody is really forced to listen to any music they don't like.

They are great guys with a sense of humor and would likely laugh at it.

For a band that so many claim to hate, they sure sell a lot of Cds and tickets.

Their first album was great but they got too poppy for me,I suppose that's what sells. Rockstar is a great song. Anybody here heard theory of a deadman they sound just like Nickelback.

They suck and all of their songs are about acting like **** s. The lead singer seems to love himself more than Mick Jagger (and I love Mick!). In my opinion, Nickelback is the very bottom of the barrel when it comes to music. They are the absolute WORST.

Dude seems pretty down to earth and seems to have a sense of humor about fans like you guys who think he's the worst.

Then again, I don't listen to music and watch videos of bands I don't like, so maybe I'm missing out on what everyone else hates about them.

I just think at some point it became cool to rip on Nickelback, when there are probably hundreds of musical artists out there that are far far worse.

Don't get me wrong, they aren't great, but I don't see what makes them so awful in the eyes of so many either.

I'm with James on Nickleback, lots of hatred out there but they are one of the biggest bands on the planet and have been for some time. Im not a big fan, but have met the Kilgor(sp) brothers. We were in a bar at the O2 in London in 2007 waiting to get into the Zep show and they were at a table with a couple of chairs available. Didn't recognize them at first but when I did I acknowledged our Canadian roots and we were asked if we would liek to join them. Chatted with them for over an hour about everything you could imagine and asked why they were out here and not backstage with the rest of the celebs. Chad said, "we are no different from you guys, fans of the greatest band ever and just waiting to get in. We had access to the backstage area but wanted to have the same experience that yall are having, because we are fans - period!" Thought that was pretty cool.

The worst? You must lead a very sheltered life. I would put them above every artist that can't even play an instrument, techno, rap and pop stars who don't even write their own music. They are a hard rock act and though I am no fan, I would take them before most of what passes for "popular" music.

Didn't realize that anything needed to be justified. Many things sell in all genres whether it is rock, classical, dance or the jam band scene. So using your logic, if it sells it sucks? Or unless you feel otherwise? Maybe people buy some artists because they like them. I laugh when people make elitist comments like that. "Only music that I like is good."

That is quite a joke. If you don't like them then that is cool but to claim that anyone who does like them knows nothing and is a moron? People always claim that sales means nothing when it is an artist that they don't like that sells well.

What do CD sales and ticket sales mean? That losts of people do like them obviously. Why? Because they like their songs. Do they need to fill in an application with you to get approval first to stay out of the moron category?

Believe it or not, the majority of people on the planet have no use for a band that plays 1/2 hour Mtn Jam's. It doesn't make either bad. Just different. There are those out there that any one who likes the ABB is some old drugged out moron. they are no more correct than you are. Just judgemental over something as silly as music. Worked when we were 10 but comes across a little different as adults.

Like Ken, I have met these guys and they are real nice guys and real good to fans. As mentioned, they would get a laugh out of the original post.

what is your point?......so is the twilight series good literature? no, it's not even literature, it is pure filth. but hey alot of little girls, teenagers and retarded adults read and buy that s**t, so by your logic it must be worthy and valid?.........nickleback, the twillight series, bieber and all that crap is simply manufactured garbage drumed up by geeks in suits counting wads of cash. it's all fake, but the problem is it is polluting the world, while many real artist starve to death..........peace.

My point? That this is not American Idol and you are not the judge. Dislike it if you want but get some facts at least. Nickleback was not manufactured by "suits". Twilight has sold million of books and the series has been turned into movies. Why? Because people like the story line and it appeals. Your logic is that millions are wrong and mindless sheep. Why? Because you don't like the same things? You don't see fault in your logic?

You lump all these things together and the only common thread is that YOU don't like them. Bieber, Twilight and Nickleback are completely different things and yet you can convieniently put them together based on the fact that no one asked your opinion before buying them. Polluting the world? A little dramatic, don't you think?

What defines a ""Real artist"? Someone that you like?

Showing your age, Grandpa.

Harvesting cash from the North American teenager is nothing new. Justin Bieber, Twilight, Britney Spears, New Kids on the Block, N'Sync, Beverly Hills 90210, The Spice Girls, Kirk Cameron, Rick Springfield, The Brat Pack, Shaun Cassidy, Leif Garrett, The Partridge Family, The Osmonds, The Monkees, early years of The Beatles, The Stones, The Beach Boys, and hey, look, we're all the way back to Ricky Nelson!

Seems someone may have a bit of a chip on their shoulder against the greatest Dominion in the world.

Let me guess hockey is too hard for you to follow?

Havent read the books but the twiligiht movies arent half bad

On Nickelback I liked the albums Silver Side Up and The Long Road havent really followed them since but the songs Ive heard on the radio are solid. I also liked the song Chad Kroeger did from the Spider Man Soundtrack with Josey Scott from Saliva (loved that band back in the day) Hereo. Might have to go on a nostaligic early 2000s rock kick now

This is what Neil Peart says concerning whether most music is prefab or not....


"They're always saying, "Oh man, I have to do it this way, have to make the song simple and repetitive 'cause that's what people like, 'cause that's my job and if I can just put a smile on the face of those hard-workin' people then my job is done." You know, that attitude has been kind of my enemy all of my life."


A toast to those artist who follow their muse, and create their art for themselves.
It's up to any other individual to decide wheter they enjoy it too.

Actualy, I missed a lot of the playoffs because I was wtching the Queen's Jubilee celebrations....in solidarity with the Dominion and the Commonwealth,of course.

By the way, just heard from the grapevine that the ABB may be adding a Creed song to their covers list. Should be fun.

Come on...are you guys serious? These guys spew crap out like it is going out of style and college kids eat it up...........until they discover real music. Of course, they're going to laugh about it. They are doing lines off of hookers and drinking until the sun comes up. They can do that as much as they want, but I don't need to hear about it in their stupid songs that I hear on the radio.
