A Nickelback fan?

I honestly do not think I have ever incountered one. Some people like a few songs but no one who has them as a favourite band or would listen to them on a constant basis.

So how the **** are they so popular?

That's how popular mainstream bands work-- you have one or two songs from hit artists, and you say you "like" all those bands, even though you're not seriously into any of the bands.

And my fiancee likes them.

I honestly don't get all the Nickelback hate. I think their music is pretty catchy. It's far from terrible. I think people just jump on the hatred bandwagon.

I agree. Have you noticed that nobody really made fun of Nickelback until everyone got tired of making fun of Fall Out Boy and Bullet for my Valentine? Everyone just switched to Nickelback. Eventually people will get tired of picking on Nickelback and move onto something else.

yeah i agree

i actually like them, they make good music, out of all the bands in the world, i like them and creed, a lot, but that was back in freshman year, iv moved on to bigger and better things, but neither of those two were bad.

They got tired of hating on Limp Bizkit and went to Creed, then to FOB, then to Nickelback.

Basically everyone goes on and hates the current popular band. Then they forget about it, and constantly bitch about the next one.

When I was like 12 or 13 my biggest dream was to attend a show of Nickelback and Breaking Benjamin together. Oh silly boy.
If I played guitar I'd be Jimmy Page, the girlies I like are underage.

I like Nickelback. Definitely have some catchy songs. I would never say they're a terrible band, nor would I say they're amazing. Don't see why people hate on them, just got nothing better to do and think everyone should like the bands you like?

EDIT:

I would love to see Breaking Benjamin in concert. Never cared for them, then I heard one song of theirs on a youtube video and got hooked. Now they're broken up Ben Burnley has a lot of songwriting talent.

I saw them They put on a good show.

And what?! They broke up? That sucks. If you want a band that's similar (maybe better), check out Evan's Blue. They're in the same vein as BB.

yea. they've been on hiatus for a while because ben was sick, respiratory infection or whatever. then the rest of the band signed to go without him, and use the name breaking benjamin. then ben sued them or something. one of my friends told me this, he's not the type to make it up. i'm sure it's around on the internet.

I tend to not hang out with people that listen to that type of music (just by personality type I guess ) so it makes sense that I wouldn't know anyone that likes them. Of course they have fans though.

Winnipeg is holding a festival tomorrow to celebrate the return of NHL hockey to the city and Nickelback was scheduled to play I think.. Until Winnipeggers wrote in a letter to the organizers begging not to book the band

As much as I hate Winnipeg, this is awesome. I don't even mind Nickelback that much, but the fact that a good portion of the city actually joined together to prevent them from playing is hilarious. Not that they'd have time between the Guess Who playing their set, various people talking about how great the Jets are, then all the fellatio Burton Cummings will recieve for being from Winnipeg.

I don't understand all the Nickelback hate either. I don't really like any of their recent music, but they have had some great songs in the past. I think the reason everyone says they hate them is because they want to fit in with the crowd.

Honestly, every person that says they hate Nickelback never gives a valid reason why they hate them. Other than saying they sound like shit. Like every other person says.

But I like Nickelback. Every person has their different tastes I guess.

Idk it's one of those albums where you need to listen to it all, not just pick and choose a few songs out of it. Some sound like ass on their own, but albumwise they go great.

I have several times, but I've learned that if you are going to discuss your distaste of a band, you should do it politely, and only if asked your opinion on them.

You are a metalhead if you listen to metal (that includes like 80% of the bands that are regarded as metal nowadays IMO), you don't turn into a "poser" or a "lol fake" if you listen to other genres sometimes; as long as wou wanna be a metalhead, you are one. If your friends can't accept that, they are close minded idiots.

Why would he want to associate himself with a very close minded group? He should be proud of a wider range in music than his friends, than a lack there of.


Nickleback to me, was one of the many bands that just became progressively worse. I don't hate them I find a lot of older songs catchy, and I'll listen to them from time to time, but nothing I would listen exclusively though. ask my 10 year old self that question though. Different story
