I think that great solo's aren't as liked by a majority of people who listen to them. To most of the audience, the solo is going to sound like the solo part, which is cool and crazy, but for the most part is just the solo part. It doesn't get as much appreciation as the rest of the song part.

So while it might be easier to write a great solo, they still don't get as much recognition. I think that if they were more enjoyed by the audience, then it would make a difference.
If you listen to popular music nowadays, there aren't any solos in them. I think that goes to show how important solos actually are to songs/people listening to songs - not very.

Your standards are strikingly low. Especially considering the one sentence response that had nothing to do with the subject at hand.

I agree with him, personally.

We all know Kurt Cobain was a third-rate guitar hack (but a great writer), yet was held up as a guitar hero nonetheless. The only explanation for that is, quite simply, that the general public that aren't guitar players could care less about your technique or about how many notes you can play. All they know is what they think sounds cool.

Thing is, Chad Kroeger (douchebag that he may be) isn't that terrible of a guitarist. He may not be the most technical, or the fastest, but he's written some pretty great riffs since 1996. And whenever Nickelback has a song with a guitar solo (or solos on occasion) they've always sounded good and fit the song perfectly. He plays with more feeling than technical skill *shrugs*

Really? I've never heard a good riff by Kroeger. Care to enlighten me with a song?

That is like saying AC/DC never wrote a good riff or that U2 couldn't perform a stadium anthem.

Social media selects targets and people like you play along pretending to be incredibly influential critics and masters of music. Chad Kroeger and the rest of the band have sold in excess of 50 million albums. Do you think you will?

Quote:
"The band has been criticised over their over-use of themes involving 'strippers, sex, prostitutes, drugs, sex, drinking and sex', for being derivative in the music they create, too often sticking to formula instead of innovating, and being repetitive."

Various sources listed in Wikipedia

If you have ever lived in Alberta or British Columbia, especially in the lower mainland area and Fraser Valley, this would be an accurate description of life around here.

I remember them when they were unknown playing "Leader of Men" acoustic live on the Larry and Willy morning show on CFOX radio after that song was selected to be released on the radio station's "Vancouver Seeds" album that local bands submitted songs for release in a competition. This was in the mid to late 1990s and it was impressive and sounded like a natural progression after grunge started to decline. I will agree that 10 years on, they are now playing a formula and it is disappointing, but it is a formula that works. It definitely lacks creativity but their fans expect that formula and would probably rebel if Nickelback changed it.

Say what you want about Nickelback and what they have become, but people who diss a Nickelback show have never been to a Nickelback show.

Definitively, otherwise he would not be so non-indifferent.

It was a serious question. I just asked if someone could point me to a good nickelback riff. I like good riffs
