    Alright Pantera and Dimebag fans, have you heard Nickelback's tribute to Dimebag? If you have, what do you reckon to it?

    Personally, I think Nickleback should be the LAST band to do a tribute song to Dimebag, but that's just my two cents. I haven't heard the song, does anyone have a link?

  4. +1

    my $0.02 also, so now a total of $0.04. Anyone else want to contribute their 2 cents to our anti-nickelback dimebag darrel tribute fund?

    Hey hey hey hold on, Dimebag worked with Nickelback, and Chad played a song to Vinnie, and he said he liked it and asked Chad to write a song for his brother, and Chad said 'that song is for your brother'. Vinnie was going to drum on the track ,but decided against it as he thought Daniel Adair(nickelback's new drummer) had done a good job. Instead he sent them a load of solo samples for the solo in Side Of a Bullet.
  6. And your point is.......? :p

    My point is that the yahd as much right as anyone to make a triubte to Dimebag. If you've heard the song, you'll know it is actually pretty heavy, with a very Panteraesque gutiar riff going on. The guitar tone isnt quite as obnoxious as Dime's but it isnt far off.

    I really dislike Nickelback. I honestly think theyd sell more records if they stopped trying to get in with the MTV thing. MTV is bad news, IMO, as it is, but nickelback just seems so out of place now.

    I'll add $0.02 if it means people will start posting in the right forum. :p

    God I love doing this:D :bag:
  16. I think its kinda fitting that the genre that Nickelback fit in is called "Commercial Rock" (insert :spit: suck-hole:spit: )
    I generally hate anything NB (up there with Ben Lee and Linkin Park as my most hated musicians) - but i do like the Pants, so i may just hear this song once before i condemn it completely.

    $0.02 pending
  17. $0.08! I bet it'll take about 14 cents to bribe nickelback's agent to his senses, and cancel the project. :D

    It is obnoxious, in a good way! I also think many of you are being very closed minded as it is Nickelback. People immediately think Nickelback means radio rock. This song is definetly not radio friendly.
