A band whose music is the auditory form of swallowing Satan's semen. Calling this band's music bland and completely mindless would be a compliment. They are consumer artists who lack creativity, but appeal to a shallow vapid audience with lyrics that make them sound "tough" and "racy". Just another neutered capitalist scumbag band. They are the antithesis of alternative music because nothing is alternative about them; they are mainstream garbage and should have choked on their umbilical cords

when someone shits directly into your ear. Named after one of the world's worst bands, as anyone with good taste in music would have concluded
Friend: What's wrong?

Me: "Owww, my ear hurts. I was listening to the radio and got Nickelbacked. IT BURNS!!

Friend: Yeah, I know. I've been there, man. Let's get some GOOD music into that ear of yours right away.

A mediocre, and undeservedly popular "post-grunge" band from Alberta. Their dull, uninteresting, dull-as-dishwater, profanity-free music can be heard on pretty much every single radio station in the country, and is the kind of the music I like to call "Soccer Mom Rock." Like I've said before, their songs are boring, lifeless, and all sound incredibly similar to each other(listen to their dreadfully boring "hit" How You Remind Me and the equally dull Someday together and you'll know what I mean), and the Jesus-resembling singer, Chad Kroeger, has an annoying singing voice, and tries too hard to capture the powerful, growling vocals of Eddie Vedder. Listen to Pearl Jam or Soundgarden instead.
Me: Which of these bands do you like better: Pearl Jam, or Nickelback?
Dumbass: Nickelback.
Me: Wow, you seriously need to get a better taste in music, asshole.

a group of no talent hacks from hannah alberta who formed a "band". They have no originality and have managed to turn 3-4 songs into several albums by constantly re-writing and re-packaging them. When writing their lead singer and guitarist (chad kroeger) always consults a third grade rhyming dictionary so he can finish the next line of the song, further more to say his guitar skills are rudimentary would be far too kind. hated universally by music critics and people who are not retarded the world over this knock off, mediocre, cheesy band astonishingly sustains a large fan-base. these said fans are referred to as dip-shits. dip-shits often defend shitle-back by pointing to their album sales or their fame and money almost never attempting to defend their artistic integrity, the object usually under attack.
dip-shit: you going to the nickelback concert

me: no they're fucking clown-shoes, I would rather listen to fran drescher while being raped by hitler then go to that suckfest

To lamely produce something for mass consumption with little care for its originality or creativity.
The client hated the ad so we totally nickelbacked it to get it approved.

The effect of becoming tremendously successful despite having no talent what so ever, offering nothing new to people, and repeating the same boring routine over and over, your fans are people who normally can't tell their heads from holes in the ground.

SEE ALSO: Dane Cook, John Cena, Nascar, Anna Kournikova, Kiss.
Nickelback lover: "Hey nickelback is so cool, best Canadian band ever!"

Intelligent person: "Umm, that title belongs to Rush."

Nickelback lover: "Rush? Oh my god that's the movie with Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker! I love that movie!!!"

Intelligent person: "You're a sad, sad man, I pity you."

Nickelback lover: "Hey, just because you don't like the stuff I like doesn't make me a s....OH MY GOD, JEFF GORDON WON THE DAYTONA 500, WOOHOO."

Intelligent person: "Imbecile."

A band so bad you can't even laugh at it.
With a frontman so terrible that one would pay to go to their show just to egg him.

Did nickelback write that song"rockstar" seriously?
Or was that some kind of sick joke?
