    Not necessarily trying to defend Nickelback, but from what I understand of the recording industry, it may not entirely be the band's fault. I've heard WAY too many stories of bands writing material only to have producers and managers essentially rewrite material to "fit the mainstream".

    Just a thought...;)
     
  15. Nickelback aint the worst band out there. After all they got some catchy tunes. But this was fun.

    Wow. Just wow. I mean wow.

    Years ago, I was dragged to a Nickelback show by a very cute girl (I later realized this was in retaliation to dragging her to a King Crimson show a month before). I was subjected to Default, Seven Channels, and Nickelback all on one stage. 3 bands, 4 hours, one song. And the crowd ate it up. I left in absolute disgust. Aforementioned cute girl loved it. I never saw her again.

    I was able to tolerate Nickelback until Chad did that silly duet with that Josie guy for the Spiderman soundtrack. Theory of a Deadman is a protege of NB and sounds exactly like them. Record label formula if I've ever seen one.

    This is just typical of the unimaginative production types residing where most A&R guys used to be housed. It has been the typical format for a few years now.
    And the music industry wonders why their revenues are failing?

    Heck, when I was younger and consumed such POP, the bands had some sense of individual and regional style, it might have been crappy style, but they where at least unique acts.
