Did they sellout from hard rock in their early albums like Silver Side Up and the Long Road to pop rock in their more recent albums?

Jw what other people thought on this topic because I thought they used to be a very good hard rock band and now they just suck.

And no, changing your sound doesn't mean selling out.

EDIT: I never liked them, where's the poll option for that?

Nickelback was hard rock?

They've always been very mainstream. Nothing has really changed about that. They haven't sold out.

Jesus was all like "To those about to rock, I salute you." then he grabbed his mighty axe and rocked the Romans out really hard. Of course they were strict classical music so....

Well, from what I've heard they always sucked, so they really had nowhere lower to go.

I have no opinion on this matter.

nickelback has always been a mainstream band. people just call them sellouts because their earlier albums didn't sell as well as their later ones for whatever reason. the sounds are essentially the same.

I believe "No" would be the option you're looking for if you don't think they sold out.

let me be one of the many to say,
Fuck nickelback, Fuck them up their stupid asses.

Oh and wrong forum btw.

They couldn't have sold out, because every song they've ever written sounds the same. It seems their 'sound' just caught on recently. They've basically set the standard for how alternative or modern rock bands 'should' sound.


I just hope that in the future they aren't regarded as my generations Led Zeppelin or The Beatles or whatever.

No they didn't! Chad Krouger is still the voice of our generation as misunderstood teenagers. He captures our spirit in his deep lyrics. He still makes good rock n' roll music for us kids, he has just evolved and became an even better guitar player. (He learned an A7 chord, which im still struggling on).

Chad Krouger is an amazing singer with an amazing band. **** the Stooges, Nickleback deserves to be in the Rock n' Roll Hall Of Fame WAY more then those posers.

They were in no position to "Sell out", they sucked to begin with. 3/4 of their fan base were Pre-teen screamy girls who have above average sized clits.

considering that your change in sound puts on the most mainstream radio station in every town, I would consider that selling out
and I never liked them ever... typically happens with bands I first hear on the radio

They were on that station to begin with, though. It's not like they changed anything.

People need to stop bitching about bands selling out STFU!!!!


But all in all Nickelback sucks


WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?!

#26
Selling out does not necessarily mean becoming ****ty.
Nickelback didn't 'sell out' because they were always a pop rock band shooting for mainstream success. They achieved it. Grats to them.

(FYI I do not enjoy their music. At all.)
#27
no offence, but you all sound pretty stupid.
bands don't sell-out, it's the music INDUSTRY, they may have started because they loved music, but it's all about the money. it's a job, it's a fun job, but it's still a job.

as for the others who are saying nickelback is ****, pull your head out of your asses, how are they one of the top money making bands if they are so horrible? they write good, catchy songs. if you're so much better, why aren't you famous and making millions?

This is a shining, glittering example of why I hate Nickelback:

Got to meet the hottie with the million dollar body
They say it's over budget, but you'd pay her just to touch it, come on!
Needs to hit the big screen and shoot a little love scene
If Hollywood had called her she'd be gone before you holler, come on!

Dirty little lady with the pretty pink thong
Every sugar daddy hitting on her all night long
Doesn't care about the money, she could be with anybody
Ain't it funny how the honey wanted you all along!

(You naughty thing)
You're ripping up the dance floor honey
(You naughty woman)
You shake your ass around for everyone
(You're such a mover)
I love the way you dance with anybody
(The way you swing)
And tease them all by sucking on your thumb

You're so much cooler when you never pull it out
'Cause you look so much cuter with something in your mouth

Crafty little lip tricks, tattoos on her left hip
She's bending as you're spending, there's no end to it, so baby come on!
Dressed up like a princess, betting that her skin smells
Better than the scent of every flower in the desert, come on!

Dirty little lady with the pretty pink thong
Every sugar daddy hitting on her all night long
Doesn't care about the money, she could be with anybody
Ain't it funny how the honey wanted you all along!

(You naughty thing)
You're ripping up the dance floor honey
(You naughty woman)
You shake your ass around for everyone
(You're such a mover)
I love the way you dance with anybody
(The way you swing)
And tease them all by sucking on your thumb

You're so much cooler when you never pull it out
'Cause you look so much cuter with something in your mouth

She loves the night scene, bar queen, just living for the fun
Taking over every dance floor like she's the only one
In the spotlight, all night, kissing everyone
And trying to look so innocent while sucking on her thumb

(So much cooler)
When you never pull it out
(So much cuter)
With something in your mouth!

(You naughty thing)
You're ripping up the dance floor honey
(You naughty woman)
You shake your ass around for everyone!
I love the way you dance with anybody
(The way you swing)
And tease them all by sucking on your thumb

(You naughty thing)
You're ripping up the dance floor honey
(You naughty woman)
You shake that ass around for everyone
