Nickelback No. 1 Passion-Killers
4
One in eight music fans will decide not to sleep with you if they discover you like Nickelback, suggests a survey. And they'd actually be LESS turned off if you were into Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga or Katy Perry. The arena pop-rockers have been named the number-one passion killers in music, ahead of Coldplay, U2 and Creed plus a stack of chart-fodder outfits. The information was revealed by users of Tastebuds.fm, a website which matches single people according to their musical preferences. In the survey, over 13% of people said you'd end the night alone if they were to find Chad Kroeger and co on your MP3 player. Women were slightly more likely to be turned off than men, with 14% of females naming the Canadians versus 11.8% of males. Tastebuds boss Aled Parish says: "We were curious to know which bands people would be most horrified to discover when browsing their date's iPod". "Although sharing musical tastes with your partner is no the be all and end all, it can certainly help in maintaining a harmonious relationship. And we've seen it's a great conversation starter". "It's always best to be honest about your taste in music, but perhaps don't mention your fondness for Nickelback until you've got the wedding ring on your finger". Top musical turn-offs: 01. Nickelback 13% 02. Justin Bieber 12% 03. Lady Gaga 9% 04. Ke$ha 5% 05. Coldplay 5% 06. U2 4% 07. Creed 4% 08. Katy Perry 4% 09. Lil Wayne 4% 10. Britney Spears 3% Thanks for the report to RockNewsDesk.com.

    As long as you don't actively make noises like Kroeger during sexy bed times I think you'll be ok

    I guess your hand likes Nickelback as well.

    Explaining my situation- I work in Alberta,I work in a place where the radio blasts all day everyday. On average I hear a Nickelback song every 45 minutes,8 hours a day,five days a week, for about 10 years now. I hate Nickelback more than life itself,I am so sick of this band that words can not come close to describing my true feelings. Yes I would be very turned off to hook up with some chick that worships this band.

    the reason you cant figure it out...is the same reason why you like them

    What?! Which girls are these? Granted Nickleback isnt a great band, but to go home alone due to a band? Their doing men a favor. Also Coldplay is on this list? They basically cater to girls. TEH PHUC man?!?

    Please take into account that if these people are being matched based on musical preference, they're likely devout music fans with a precise taste in music. The people who listen to these bands/artists don't care for going onto music websites and dating websites. As an example, UG is a very metal/guitar based community. We're more incline to enjoy the likes of Metallica and Iron Maiden over the Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. If you polled us, of course the results would be skewed. It's all about the question, who you're asking and what commmunity the belong to. If you asked us if we'd sleep with chicks who like Maiden more or one who likes Kesha more, more than likely, 95% of us would go for the Maiden fan.

    This poll is biased because it came from a website that matches people based on their music interests. Think about it! What kind of people would even use that site in the first place?

    Terrible list.. I'd rather listen to Nickelback for a whole year then even laying a finger on bieber and lil waynes music.

    I lucked out. I flat out asked my girlfriend (on our first date) to list what she would consider her 5 most listened to bands: DevilDriver, In Flames, Otep, Metallica and Lacuna Coil was her answer. Loved her from the getgo.

    I agree. Nothing turns a person off more than listening to a constipated-sounding redneck sing about drinking til he falls down
    Thumper!
    Enought with the Nickelback hate. Yes the last album sucked but the first couple of albums were great! I'd rather listen to Nickelback than Gaga, Kesha, or LMFAO

    Creed is a great band. I would refuse to let a woman drink my man juice if she didn't like Creed.

    I would not have sex with a girl who listened to Nickelback, Creed, ICP, or anything considered crunkcore.

    Jesus this is a terrible article. I'll get flamed for this and I don't care. I love Creed. Mark Tremonti's phrasing is incredible and I like the style of music. If people actually listened to the songs on the cd's that aren't Higher, With Arms Wide Open, etc, you may see that it isn't pop rock or whatever you like to call it. My Own Prison had some of the most dissonant songs I've heard but whatever.

    One day I dated a girl that was obsessed with Nickelback. The relationship didn't end well

    If i was talking to a girl and she came up to me wearing a nickelback shirt... i would politely never call her again.

    I probably wouldn't. A lot of metal girls are gross. Some are cute.

    U2 is not in the same category as any band mentioned in this article. They are extremely talented musicians and song writers that write quality music with meaning and integrity. How the **** can you compare Creed to U2?

    Old Nickelback up to and including (most of) All The Right Reasons is awesome. It's the new stuff that is shit.

    If a woman won't date/go home with you because you like a band, she wasn't going to anyway, and it's an excuse. That, and she's a vapid ho. What kind of terrible person won't consider a partner because of their taste in music?
    NeutralLuke
    My opinion on this; I don't care, I still like Nickelback just as much as any band.
    Biginjones07
    I live in a city where if you request a Nickleback song on the radio, the broadcasters will laugh at you and hang up... ^.^

That just proves you have nothing else in life and have to judge people on ridiculously superficial things. Nuff said
    Musical taste is not superficial. Nuff said.

    The percentages on this list are so small, it doesn't show any significance whatsoever. 88% will still hook up with you if you like Nickelback. These acts are all highly polarized acts too. What I mean is; there's an equally if not greater (greater for pretty much all of those listed except Creed and Nickelback) group of people, mostly girls, who you can score major points on for liking any of the acts listed.

    Thank you. Creed is awesome. Most of these people that claim to hate Creed were probably big fans from '99-'02. It's all about the bandwagon, man.

    Even though I have no problem with Nickleback, these comebacks are pretty funny!

    I went on a date with a girl, but I got turned off by the fact that she liked Bieber a bit too much. The fact the she's 21 and he's like 17 made it a bit creepy too...

    Shame that U2 is on there, I am happy to admit I really enjoy their music
    CSMusic
    I honestly have never understood the whole "hate nickelback" bandwagon. I mean, I'm not really a fan or anything, but I think they have some good songs. Not that I've heard many songs of theirs. \( o)/
