Media Center>Why does everybody hate Nickelback?
Frazod 07:02 PM 02-08-2019
They're after my time, and as far as I know I've only ever heard one of their songs. Which is frankly kind of catchy.

But comparing any disliked band to Nickelback seems to be the ultimate musical insult, and any time they are mentioned people seem to pile on like the crowd that wanted to burn the witch in Holy Grail.

What did they do? Does everybody hate their music that much? Are they dicks to their fans?

I need somebody not musically stuck in the decade between '75 and '85 to enlighten me.

I love all of the Tool albums TBH. But when I listen to Tool, I actually strongly prefer their live shit off of youtube (as long as the sound quality is good). Their live performances sound way better than the studio recordings if you ask me.

Like for example

The simplicity is part of the original allure imo. I've lost countless hours playing basic, simple Nirvana songs.

Come as you are, smells like teen spirit.....easy to learn and fun to play.

I'm not a guitarist but I thought the whole allure of Nirvana and grunge in general was the whole "do it yourself" ethos. Sort of the second coming of punk.

Like every other pop song out there. It's just not for me.

She hasn't aged too well...not ugly...just doesn't have that teenie rocker chick look anymore that I liked then.

Music was always crap.
She was hot AF.

Well, I can't stand his music but Cobain's suicide ensured that he became a musical martyr which means he will be around forever.

There's a distinction between passion demonstrated through technical proficiency and passion demonstrated through emotion, and either has the potential to move and inspire you, or leave you cold, depending on what you value.

A good deal of guitarsturbators leave me cold, even if I appreciate their skill.
And a good deal of sloppy garage bands inspire me with their exuberance.

Yeah, there's a TON of unnecessary, ego driven bullshit that bogs down genres **cough metal cough**. I lean towards the metal/punk crossover stuff that strips out the one upping, insecure standing within the fanbase, bullshit that gets labeled as "technical" and just stays focused on the fury. Anyone that's been in a band knows it and that's how weird solo parts turn a good 3 minute song into a 4.5 minute mess that people skip to the next track before it ends and usually why the first 2 albums of a discography are the best.
