Nickleback Sucks

nickleback.jpgYes, it’s true. They represent everything that is sh!tty about rock these days. Overwrought singing of lyrics written in the style of a 14-year old boy. Generic middle-of-the-road crap. This caller disagrees. Hear him out:

Nickleback is Great!

And, as a bonus, here’s something I did a few years ago at another radio station in Toronto. We took the banal lyrics of Nickleback, and made a short radio-play:

    This is for those who attempt to argue that SOME other band is more repetative and useless than Nickelback.

    therefor I award this caller and of course Nickleback the failboat

  2. Lee Says:

    Nickleback is one of those people that moved out early and had a rough life eh?

    Funny, as I remember it, around 1996 when Chad’s mother Debbie married one of the wealthiest families in Provost the band was still living (and practicing) at home. A very nice home at that. That would have made him 21.

    Oh, and you know, the wealthy stepfather from Provost? Well he loaned the boys money to record their album.

    It’s just a hard knock life for Nickleback.

    I agree fully with shauna they are terrible

    I am very disturbed. As I was listening to x929 just now, I heard Adam Cross make a segway (sp?) into a song that sent chills down my spine. 8:46pm Nickelback - How You Remind Me.

    Now my obvious shock was then moved to the thought that Voice Girl would end up interrupting Nickelback when it starts up… but alas, the song went on, and eventually finished.

    A Nickelback song was played in full on X929. I don’t know if I can live another day… please restore my faith in the universe… find a way.

    PS - you rule!

    Josh says: I will look into this. We have a strict “No Nickleback Guarantee” and I’d hate to know one slipped through our safeguards.

    I feel sorry for any musician who chooses to follow in Nickleback’s “Peppy” footsteps…

    I wonder how high or hammered this caller was, comparing Ficklecrap to the Ramones in the same breath? I mean, c’mon, get a grip, already. Comparing early punk rock to the mainstream is like trying to compare the original KFC recipe to extra crispy. Greasier and higher in trans-fats.

    As for last night’s No Nickleback slip up, it’s kinda like almost at a job site where they have so many days without a lost time accident, and in light of receiving today’s X-Army newsletter, you guys have gone on a successful 587 days. So hopefully that it’s all just a small slip-up on Lynch’s part and not a pre-staged stunt just to get ratings. Don’t mess with a good thing.

    lol nickelback

    i think that should sum things up

  9. Rob Says:

    Seriously buddy? Nickleback? You obviously just follow the trends and listen to what pop-charts tell you to. Comparing them to the Ramones is crossing the line… Even if the Ramones werent the greatest band they were a role model and helped the creation of Nirvana, a band that I should apologize for mentioning in the same thread as Nickleback. Nickleback is repatiative garbage that owes their success to the buying power of 13-16 year old girls, and apparently… you. Your entitled to you own opinion but im sorry to say that it lines up with people who also like Britney Spears, and Ashley Simpson.

    and…. “peppy?”…..
