    Why has Nickelback gotten such a bad rap? I do not like them but I tease my friend relentlessly about how much he loves them, but I just do it for fun, I accept all music for what it's worth.

    Something about the singer (his voice??) that just doesn't jive with me.:shrug:

    But, I'm happy for any Canadian Band that makes it! :righton::righton::righton:

    Because it's just straight up generic garbage for ones who aren't really into music and want something disposable and easy.

    Never understood it. I've always quite enjoyed their music. :shrug:

    To each their own, I always say. :righton:

    I like ‘em - they’re a guilty pleasure and I’m pretty good at not letting others’ attitudes get in the way of my enjoyment. ‘Leader of Men’, ‘Rockstar’, and ‘Photograph’ are great tunes. I guess people got too self-conscious as the world transitioned from nostalgia to millennialist. It’s a shame they became a bashing target.

    (But they’re no Tragically Hip...)

    The soccer mom killed Nickelback (by dancing in their living rooms). Welp, no wonder then...

    They are like the Pot Noodle of music. just horrible but sometimes can be enjoyable when your mind isn't functioning at complete capacity.

    The lead singer looks like the kinda guy to slap your girls ass and then wink at you :winkgrin:

    My grandchildren don’t like Nickelback either.

    I dont get the hate either. To me,they are like Foo Fighters. Its just a rock band beeing overplayed on radio. I switch channel for both. So I dont understand why one is supposed to be garbage and the other sooo good. It's like people who like Motley Crue and they hate Poison and Wasp.

    Speaking of which, there’s a strong Nickleback vibe in this modern day tune:

    ? Their debut came out like 25 years ago. What kids today are listening to Nickelback? It probably is only old men still listening.

    I don't hate them, I just find them formulaic and uninteresting.

    If you have to ask then you don't and won't really get it. It's a visceral thing.

    Yes I do, and all sorts of other music that I’m supposed to be embarrassed about.

    But not Nickelback.

    They've been quite successful no? So not universally hated by any means.
    I have nothing by them, I've heard a few things online and I'd say they're good at what they do. Some their more country tinged stuff is fun.
