Can someone please explain to me why everyone hates Nickelback? I understand why the alternative music community doesn't like them (because they went mainstream) but don't get why people in general hate it. I mean **** people there are more Dubstep fans than Nickelback. Answers like "their music is ****" don't count.

They're definitely better than say Lil' Wayne ..

But their music is boring, unoriginal and emotionally over exaggerated as hell.

Like mainstream pop trying to be hard rock

I personally enjoy a good amount of their music.   
   
Back when they were more of a soft rock band they were actually pretty good, ("If Everyone Cared", "Saving Me", "Photograph") but then they started taking the hard rock path and their riffs just all started sounding the same song after song, until they were just another generic group with little to no originality thrown in.     
   
The fact that they're played on the radio so much doesn't help either, but then again, people tend to hate artists who get played a lot anyway.  But in conclusion, I don't hate Nickelback; their musical style is, if anything, too dated and overdone to be very enjoyable.

I just straight up do not enjoy their music. I like their style of music and that but generally, I just don't enjoy their music. Decent band, but I just don't like the sound. However, some of the **** they get is uncalled for.

Probably a minority view here but I think it's the same for Bieber. Hate his music, hate the sound of it. But the kid's got talent. It's just not my thing, and it's the same for most people. People like his music, so he has a right to be in the media. The majority want to hear from him and hear about him.

People should seriously lay off the kid... Hasn't he got enough to deal with coming to terms with his sexuality?

Nah, I'm just kidding Seriously lay off the kid.

I've always liked them... a few people on the internet decided they didn't like them, and everyone loves hopping on the ******* bandwagon.

i agree, i think that nickelbacks older stuff is better, but thats the way i feel about most bands. Bands rarely stay the same their entire career.

Their lyrics are cheesy and gay as ****... But I guess their tunes are great. It's always: "save the world" "We must stand together" "live while you can" Pretty much in every song.

I'm sure Nickelback is fine to the average person, but to a trained musician, it sounds like ****. But we musicians are hard to impress.

But that's the reason people dislike them. They don't make good music.

Im not gonna reply with "their music is ****" like you said, but I'm not generally a fan. Not because everyone on FJ hates them, but just because their music is something that I would mostly likely not sit down and listen to, especially when I have artists like Judas Priest and Accept in my playlists as well. I mean, they have one or two pretty cool songs, but not everyone has to like them, and not everyone has to hate them. It's called an opinion, for any of those stereotypical FJ users that constantly poison FJ.

I like Nickelback too. Least they have good lyrics and not a repetition of a ********* word-play

My friend said it's because everything about them is sub-par.
- The singer's voice is a bit raspy
- The drummer isn't that good, neither is the guitar or bass players

Though he's on tough dude to impress music-wise. He sets high strandards. I personally like Nickelback. I'm actually planning on getting their latest album.

Pic unrelated. ( But damn, look at how much that guy loves his veggies. )

Actually as a drummer i must say that they're drummer is pretty good. He is not the most technical drummer out there but his timing is incredible.

I don't like Nickelback. The drummer is awesome, the bassist isn't good at all.

Couldn't agree more. Atleast it ain't Nickelback songs poppin' up all over Facebook. I mean, I like Nickelback, I think their music is good. The only answers I've found to why everyone seems to think it sucks is because ''LOL DUBSTEP MUCH BETTR FCK NICKEBLCAK GAY MUSIC LOL''.
