why do people hate nickelback so much


Recommended Posts

I havent heard much of them but i have there song if everyone cared , its not bad its pretty good.

And the reason they might not sound good to you , is because you listen to rock bands that produce amazing music like aerosmith and guns n roses , while the mainstream thinks sum 41 is rock , so nickelback seems better than they actually are.

i would rate them about 4.5-5/10

the guys voice is annoying though.

I've only heard the singles but it all sounds the same, you could switch around the different parts in the songs and no one would notice. Besides that they'are generic, boring, have dumb lyrics and what's making it even worse is that they're one of the most popular/succesful "rock" bands today (at least according to MTV/Billboard).

i dunno. only really heard one song. that big famous one a whiles back, im always intrigued by things that are so widely disliked, i might have to buy an album, see what all the fuss is about.

Thing is that they are not widely disliked. Widely disliked at mygnr, sure, but overall they are extremely popular. GN'R should hope Chi Dem attains the same level of popularity.

That said, yes, they do suck. I'd disagree that they are the worst band however. There are a lot of bands out there today that are much worse (Sum 41, Simple Plan, etc.)

I can't stand vocalists that sound this way. So many vocalists now in mainstream rock have that kind of growling, monotone way of singing. They have no fucking talent to just open up and sing properly. They just all sound the same (although Chad's voice is deeper than most, so you can recognize him but it's not down to the way he sings, just the way he sounds).

Back in the day we had rock vocalists who each sounded unique. Just think - Axl Rose, James Hetfield, Jon Bon Jovi, Steven Tyler, Robert Plant, Mick Jagger, Vince Neil, Ian Astbury, Gary Cherone, David Lee Roth, etc. Makes most of today's rock vocalists look like a complete joke in comparison.

I like some of their songs..2 or 3..but to be honest,they're the most sellout band in the history.They like to call that generic piece of shit pop rock songs as "rock n' roll"..fuck me,they're so fake...I heard that even the band members don't speak to each other,cuz this band is so fuckin' fake that it hurts.

I guess the level of hate just stems from overexposure -- they've had like 9 horrible hit singles off their shitty album from 2005.

Personally what really bothers me about Nickelback is the guitar; it's the same boring chord riffs and progressions for what seems like every fucking song. The bridges and choruses and verses for most of their hit songs seem like they're interchangeable. I find it insulting they actually have a dedicated guitar player along with Chad.

Then you combine that with lyrics that are complete banal tripe, and it makes me ashamed they record albums here.

If everyone cared and nobody cried

If everyone loved and nobody lied

If everyone shared and swallowed their pride

Then we'd see the day when nobody died

And I'm singing

Amen I, Amen I, I'm alive

Amen I, Amen I, Amen I, I'm alive

I think he dug back all the way to his third grade poetry journal for that one.

I heard a radio DJ say something along the lines of how he wasn't digging Velvet Revolvers latest CD, which is fine... but then he proceeded to rave about Nickelback, play their latest single, and tell everyone to buy tickets to their upcoming show... I really couldn't figure that out.
