A misunderstood, but popular rock band from Canada. They are hated on by so-called "rockers" who claim that they have gotten softer as their career has progressed, and because the rest of them don't have long hair like Chad does. Maybe, but they still have hard rock songs on their albums as well as those power ballads that have influenced such bands as Saving Abel. Just because Chad Kroeger has chosen not to scream all the time and be blunt in his songwriting instead of metaphorical like your rockers do is no reason to hate on them. They are not talentless fucks as you would like to believe. It's not their fault they are so popular. It's the fault of the fans. If it wasn't for us fans, dedicated and casual, they would be obscure.
Everyone seems to hate on Nickelback because Chad chose to start being a blunt lyricist from "Silver Side Up" onward instead of metaphorical like he was on "Curb" and "The State". They don't just talk about sex, drugs, and rock n roll like Buckcherry and the like do. Nickelback have had topical songs. Have Buckcherry et. al. done that? Maybe, but not very often. You say that the women who like Nickelback only like their ballads. WRONG! I like their rockers as well, and I'm a woman, and their biggest fan.
