I don’t get all the Nickelback hate. It seems no matter where I turn, someone else is bashing Nickelback. While I’m not a big Nickelback fan, I do like some of their songs. I don’t think they’re as bad as everyone is making them out to be. The only reason I’m even writing about this is that the biggest complaint I’ve heard about them makes absolutely no sense to me.
The complaint about them that I hear the most is “Now all bands sound like Nickelback.”
How the hell is that their fault? They have no control over what other bands do. It’s not their fault other bands might be copying their style. If you want to be bashing somebody, bash the bands that are trying to sound like Nickelback.
If you don’t like Nickelback because you just don’t like their music, that’s fine. However, if you’re one of those who bash them because other bands are copying them, your logic blows. How would you feel if someone copied something you did, then everybody started hating you for it?
