A band featuring the Paddle-Pop Lion on vocals and...well, some other folks at the back that don't get much attention. The ol Lion roars about as loud as he can and doesn't seem to use techniques like change in dynamics, falsetto, or anything like that.
They busted into the mainstream with their hit "How You Remind Me." Meh, I didn't mind it; it was a nice change from the boy-band crap like N'Sync and whatnot. Of course, I wasn't so hot on their stuff either. BUT they got greedy and once they realized their formula for success (which wasn't hard to decode), they cashed in on it as much as possible and went on to make some of the worst songs ever created.
N.B: THEY ARE NOT NU METAL. THEY DON'T USE CRAZY EFFECTS, NOR DO THEY SCREAM/SCREECH, NOR DO THEY DABBLE IN ANY INDUSTRIAL GRINDINGS; THEY ARE "DUDE" ROCK, CRAP EXCRETED FROM THE BOWELS OF THE POST-GRUNGE SCENE.
No examples, folks; the name is self-evident...Nickelback, lmao!
