    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    He does a great job of accumulating endorsements.

    There. I did it. I lived by the "if you can't say something nice...." rule.

  6. Anyone ever heard the song 'Diggin' This'? I know some bassists on here would play it with their cock, but it's a nice good bassline, with some seriously funky slapping and popping, and then there's 'Never Again', that song jsut growls. And as for him building up endorsments, you're right, he should have stuck with warwick in my opinion. And Nickelback don't play the same tune over and over, just listen to the albums, not the singles, and you'll see what I mean.

    Too bad had a good bassline, very simple, but it had a slight autowah to it or something of that nature, it sounded really good.

    He do what he do.
     
  9. Funny you say that, cuz I don't like the Too Bad bassline too much, it's a bit too over effected, but that main riff in the chorus just pummels away. And sorry about my language, it just sounds good.

    Their stuff mostly sounds the same :-\.. It's like Creed minus the ex lead singer thinking he's some jesus-man.
     
  11. No it doesn't! Not one song on SSU sounds like ther song before it. They all be different.

    I don't think anyone slammed him for not being flashy. He does a fine job with Nickelback. Its just that their songs sound too much alike (and yes, I have listened to their albums).
     
  15. I think they sound nothing alike but hey, people don't share the same set of ears I suppose. What is everyone's fave nickelback song?(if you have one).
     
  16. YYZ...Oops! Wrong thread... :bassist:

    This thread was good for a few laughs.

    Nickelback sounds the same to me too, so that's the majority at the moment it seems.
     
  19. Now really son, are you sure that theyre not selling you a My Morning Jacket cd disguised as NickelBack, over there in jolly ole england???
     
  20. The best running back backfield combo was

    Jimmy Taylor at Fullback

    Paul Hornung at Halfback.

    The 1962 Packers kicked everyone's ass. All the way to New York!
