    LOL.
    I remember when everyone was into them. I consistently thought of them as utterly ****. Damn you PGL for making me endure, not 1, but 5 of their songs.

    According to wikipedia: "Genres: Hard rock, alternative rock, post-grunge, alternative metal"

    Lyrics to photograph, opening verse:

    "Look at this photograph
    Everytime I do it makes me laugh
    How did our eyes get so red
    And what the hell is on Joey's head"

    Poetic genius, VERY HARD ROCK.



    Funny how they were voted ugliest band too. Wtf man haha.

    Ah, everyone loves to jump on the 'I Hate Nickelback' bandwagon, don't they?
    At least they write their own music, which cannot be said for so many so-called 'artists' nowadays.

    so ****ing what if they do?
    it's not admirable when they churn out such ****.
    i could write my own music and it would be pure tripe and i'd get slated nonetheless.

    I love Nickelback. I would label myself as a metal/hard rock fan, and I still think they're great. I think some people need to stop thinking they're too hardcore and elite to listen to some different types of music.
    Yeah they've done some pretty dodgy lyric writing, but jeez lighten up.

    I don't understand what's so horrific about their music, though? I'm not a Nickelback fan, their music isn't inspirational, but it's listenable, and I'm not going to deny I do enjoy some of the songs. They have palatable chord progressions and harmonies, the lyrics aren't fantastic by any stretch of the imagination but neither are lyrics from many a rock song...in their defence at least they aren't pretentious verses comprised of obscure phrases obviously chosen to fit the melody line, that are considered to be 'genius' merely due to the fact that meaning has been created through interpretation of the words via extraneous sources. Getting in a bit deep here but the main point is...they're not anything particularly special yet I feel their music doesn't exactly warrant such a profound negative response.

    I find some bands absolutely awful, yet they seem to escape this barrage of hate. In reality I think it's more likely the problem lies with their arrogant persona as a band rather than a problem with their music.

    i LIKE rock music and i LIKE Nickelback, so bugger off with that idea...

    I don't think there's anything particularly wrong with them, except perhaps the slightly repetetive nature of some of their later albums. Still, they were the first rock band I listened to and they broke me into the rock genre- I like 'em!

    Never understood people's problem with them...if you don't like them, don't listen to them. Why start a rant? :dontknow:

    They're not the best band, a bit generic, but some hillarious songs, some quite moving actually.

    Man they are ******* awful. Horrible watered down kid friendly radio rock for idiots. They should be put against a wall and shot with all the other 'post-grunge' music butchers.

    I looked at most of your post, and decided to correct what I could.
    There are added brackets.
    The underlined is truth.
    The bold is lies.

    You're a music critic then, I assume? Everything you say is gospel?
