Billy Corgan: Chad Kroeger Is an Incredible Songwriter
25

The Smashing Pumpkins mastermind Billy Corgan sang praises of Nickelback and frontman Chad Kroeger, telling Joe Rogan (via Alternative Nation):

"[Chad]'s an incredible songwriter.

"I don't know enough about their world, but I don’t think there's anything wrong if that's who you want to be.

"Pop is predicated on satisfying. I've said many times pop is porn. It's porn, they want to get you off.

"It's just how they're going to get you off. I'm not that concerned with getting you off, I'm just not."

    Chad looks the exact same way my doctor did when I stopped in to get my prostate checked.

    He's not wrong though. Kroeger straight up studied how to make hit songs and proceeded to become one of the biggest bands on the planet. We like to throw shade on them on the interwebz but these guys fill stadiums.

    Lol, I remember that part while listening and i was like..Ok, Lol. He said afterwards like i'm just not your guy, don't look for me to do that for you, ha. But that was actually a very insightful interview overall and for the length of it on the Joe Rogan show. Lot more perspective of the business side of things.

    Time to beat the dead Internet horse here: I think we already know what Corey Taylor thinks about this.
