I'm not sure. I generally like Nickleback. My roommate has a ton of their music and plays it all of the time and it's generally a good listen. And a lot of their songs are actually pretty good. I was thinking about asking her for her ipod so I could put some of her Nickleback songs on my computer, even.

Maybe I just have really weird music taste. XD

Well, I've personally never been a fan of Nirvana, and Nickelback is just Nirvana after being watered down for mass consumption for a decade or so, so that's my reasoning. I'm sure somebody will stroll along and post the link to the "All Nickelback songs are the same" demonstration, but I've always believed that that was just a way to show that Nickelback are dicks and doesn't really have anything to do with the music quality per se.

People hate Nickelback because where most shitty music acts have at least several different shitty songs, Nickelback has one shitty song that they regurgitate over and over and over again. The same groaning dirge, bereft of anything resembling passion or verve or spirit, forever and ever unto eternity. When you arrive in Hell's waiting room*, Nickelback is the song they will play.

Setting aside the particular question of Nirvanna's merits I don't think it's illustrative of Nickelback's shittiness to compare them to Nirvanna because Nickelback churns out the same arena-rock crap that was being churned out two decades before anyone ever heard of a Nirvanna and will continue to be churned out two decades from now.





*The joke is you're not actually waiting for anything, Hell is the waiting room.

Nickelback is just the epitomy, the embodiment of record industry formulated and produced pop-rock drivel. For the most part, they sound like some American Idol winner (see: Chris Daughtry), and while they aren't from the abysmal depths of horror (fuck you, J. Lo), they are nothing more than pure, industry friendly, safe mediocrity. They never push any boundries, they never get adventerous or experimental, they never evolve. Everything they do is essentially the same as everything they've done before, and while that may be fine for a one-hit, one-album wonder, most of us want variation, want change, want evolution. They don't have to be a Radiohead in that respect, but at least give us some variation, and we may start to consider them.

Until then, I think that the famous track edit from the SA forums says it all. Two different songs, yet not different at all. It just goes to show that if you've heard one of thier songs, you've probably heard them all.

I've only heard one of their songs, so I guess I'm at the Nickelback appreciation plateau. It can only go downhill from here.

I'd just like to say that I enjoy telling people who like Nickleback about the famous edit right when they're ready to go to a Nickleback concert.

Ah that must be it. Because if I want to listen to something different, I generally listen to a different artist. It might also have something to do with I just listen to music. I don't really pay attention to the artists, I just hear a song and decide if I like it or not.

Other than a few of them(like from POSs example, which actually doesn't work for me because one of my speakers doesn't work XD but I've heard it before and it IS pretty terrible), I think that a lot of their songs do don't all sound like the same song.

Similar, yes, but not as bad as some people make it out to be.

Having listen to one (or possibly more, I'm not entirely sure) a couple of times, the most annoying thing about them was the lead singer. Now I have a much higher tolerance for wangst-ridden then most people but that mans voice hits me need centre on the “Annoying whingy bastard must kill” part of my mind. The words are irrelevant for me I can’t get past the guys uuuuuuugh inducing melodrama voice. This itself is probably a personal thing but it prevented me from actually listening to the song. The music itself disappears into the background of the lead singers jet engine whine and the words themselves lose all meaning and indeed in my mind actual sound. Then again this jus me and I’m hardly the basis of the average teenager.
