Nickelback destroys relationships. It does also don't look at the tags, they're naked. Rebekah went from being "in a relationship" to single." Rebekah liked .. i really don't see why they are hated so much. people claim their songs sound the same, but they don't. if anybody can find 2 that sound the same, send them to  Naked

And they are Canadian

I liked them until Silver Side Up, after that, their songs really do all sound the same time signature, same chords, same vocals, phrasing, structure etc.

I like some of their songs still, but they've been going drastically downhill since SSU

They're not my fav band, but Dark Horse is a pretty good album in my opinion.
User avatar #80 to #10 - localcatbarber (10/27/2012) [-]
Because they write pop songs, and then just put some heavy guitar chords to it.

I'm fine with other liking them though. I don't really care.

Do you know what is funny?

Listening to both songs, you cant help but to notice how incredibly variable Kroegers voice is!
Yeah, the songs are pretty much copypaste style, but his voice makes em still sound different.
User avatar #94 to #53 - admiralen ONLINE (10/27/2012) [-]
just cause they have part at the same places doesnt mean they sound the same
User avatar #26 to #10 - jellyman (10/27/2012) [-]
I really like Nickelback. The hate started when dark horse came out and since them they've been criticized for having their music being about sex, drugs, and alcohol, and that pisses the **** out of me. You see all those ****** rappers like lil wayne and minaj and whiz kalifa rap about those kinds of **** and they don't get criticized, but when Nickelback does it, OH MAY JEEZUS SACRIFICE THEIR SOULS HALF ******* MERCY.

And Nickelback are NOT repetative. AC/DC are, some death metal bands are, etc. but they're still good though
User avatar #27 to #26 - malacyman (10/27/2012) [-]
AC/DC wasn't really repetative. but i know what you mean. And for nickelback talkign about sex, drugs and alcohol.

thats what Rock is all about. Sex drugs and rock and roll, You're never too young, you're never too old

Burn it to the ground...   
That song has a special place in my heart, perfect for starting those long ass friday nights.   
I'm not one to moralize their songs, since what they sing about is exactly what is going to happen when i'm listening to em :D

I ******* love Nickelback, aside from personal taste there's no reason to hate them. I agree with you, none of their songs sound the same to me and the lyrics are amazing.
User avatar #13 to #10 - thetattooedone (10/27/2012) [-]
Because people think it is cool to hate them. I liked them when I was 12 and I still like them 11 yrs later. I don't actively listen to them as much but I still listen.

I don't get all the hate for Nickelback. Ok, Chad is no Freddy mercury. No-ones debating that. But they are a bloody amazing band. I went to see them on their current tour, and they are great live. Far better than any other concert I've been to, they really know how to get the crowd going.

Bring on the *********
User avatar #93 to #76 - megatrollinator (10/27/2012) [-]
Well, you posted an opinion that goes against the status quo of the community, and you are not being rude about it. I say you deserve any green thumbs given, but that's just my opinion.

Nickelback are a bloody amazing band, and I wish I could see them perform live.
User avatar #97 to #93 - Dember ONLINE (10/27/2012) [-]
I've also gotten to see them live before -- twice, as a matter of fact. I've got no shame whatsoever in saying they're my favorite band.

I think a lot of the 'hate' stems from the time they intended to play alongside some other bands in some foreign country, but no one had ever heard of them there, so the crowd booed at them, because apparently **** canadians.
After the video "Nickelback booed off stage" went viral, everyone seemed to think they could treat them like the next Justin Bieber and it'd be hilarious, but most of the people who actually have listened to even one song by them admit they're really not bad.

Even if that's not your personal choice of music, it's hard to deny that the band is genuinely talented, as is attested by their millions upon millions of rabid fans, not to mention their general success as musicians.
If people truly don't like them, that's fine; expecting the world to share the same taste in music would be pretty ludicrous, anyway. But still, before mindlessly dissing them solely because they saw other people doing it, people really should check out their music, and then see if they still think that they deserve it.

They certainly haven't done or said anything to earn foul treatment or disrespect -- which is difficult to impossible for many celebrities to honestly say -- and they're actually really nice guys and very generous, from what I hear.
Sincerely, a loyal Nickelback fan since 2001.

I like them. And their concerts are fun as **** .
#99 to #35 - Dember ONLINE (10/27/2012) [-]
I've seen them live twice now.
The first time, a bunch of people were smoking dope right at the very base of the stage, and as soon as the band walked out, they all hurriedly stashed it all away and kept trying (unsuccessfully) to wave the lingering smoke away.

I will never forget these words:
"............. Man, it smells SO ******* good in here." -- Chad Kroeger

Actually a pretty cool guy.
Picture related, I took that the second time I saw them in concert.

Because its a lamestream pop rock band.

Except that they've been around since 1995. They've been through a lot to get where they are now. I respect them for writing their own music and playing it live.

It's not that I don't like Nickelback. I just think that they're a mediocre band. They're not good enough for me to listen to when there are other bands out there that are more technically skilled and overall better.
#73 to #55 - anno (10/27/2012) [-]
Being technically more skilled doesn't mean being better. Nickelbacks drummer Daniel Adair has as much as technique as someone like Chad Szeliga does. He just chooses not to use it since he doesn't need it in Nickelback. I listen to bands like Dream Theater, TesseracT, Periphery, Meshuggah, Black Label Society, Kuha, Pantera, Porcupine Tree. Textures, Tool and many many other bands who are technically a lot better than Nickelback, but i still love listening to Nickelbackand rocking out to their songs.

TL;DR: Being more technical doesn't mean being better.
User avatar #78 to #73 - zaruz (10/27/2012) [-]
When I saw them earlier this month, Daniel Adair did a huge drum solo that was SICK. I never actually knew he was such an amazing drummer until then.
#104 to #73 - junter (10/27/2012) [-]
Alright, let me rephrase. I don't see why I should listen to nickleback when there are other bands that I could be listening to that I think are better. I'm not saying nickleback is bad. They just aren't as good.
#6 to #5 - rainbowghost (10/27/2012) [-]
All of their songs sound the same. They use the exact same formula. intro, verse, chorus, verse, chorus, breakdown, chorus, outro. Also a lot of the chord progressions they use are similar. That is why I hate them at least.
#36 to #6 - anon (10/27/2012) [-]
AC/DC has been recording the same album since the 70's.
User avatar #19 to #6 - flyleafistheshit (10/27/2012) [-]
Aerosmith's songs go basically chorus, chorus, pre-chorus,chorus, chorus, chorus, chorus, finale, chorus, and they are one of the most respected bands in... ever. If it works for them then why fix it?
User avatar #9 to #6 - dawgfan (10/27/2012) [-]
Although I do like Rockstar and Photograph.
But, I think a lot of people just like to jump on the bandwagon

The moment there's a nickelback insult post, most of the comments are people trying to justify that they're not that bad. No one is telling you not to like them. I personally don't like them but **** it, don't take my word. There can't be a post about someone insulting the band without the comments being flooded with reassurance that they're good.
#40 - tenthousndfists (10/27/2012) [-]
Okay. Lets get some info in here..

The albums silver side up, the state, long road, hesher, curb, all with their old drummer.
All the wrong reasons, dark horse, and their new album are with their new drummer.

With their old drummer i think they were a more traditional rock band. They never really had a bunch of sappy songs like "If everyone cared" and "gotta be somebody."

Yes, they did make songs like "someday" and "do this anymore." If you listen to them, they are still more rock songs than sappy.

Their new drummer comes around, and BOOM - FAME. They started making songs tailored to more of a mainstream / party feel. "Burn it to the Ground", "something in your mouth", "SEX". All more party and bar songs rather than a rock song. YES, it does fit into the rock genre. YES it is still a rock song.

Metallica did the same ******* thing. Wrote kill them all, ride the lightning, master of puppets, and and justice for all. ALL "thrash metal". BOOM - Jason Newstead comes in, they release the black album, load and reload. All slower normal rock/metal songs tailored more to fit into the mainstream.

Everyone just jumps on the bandwagon because its "cool" to hate nickelback because of their newer songs when most of them probably dont even remember their old songs.
Probably just me, but i barely new any women that were into nickelback before they released Photograph. Everybody has to grow and attract a bigger crowd eventually.

TL:DR - Bands change, get used to it.

Its my opinion on the internet. I know. Thumb me down I dont give a **** .
