10 Reasons Why Nickelback is the Worst Band of All Time



10 Reasons Why Nickelback is the Worst Band of All Time


This is how you remind me . . . of how horrible you really are


Nickelback is the worst band of all time. This is a fact.  I mean, sure, we can all agree they aren't technically as bad as these guys, but I don't have to listen to those guys every day on my way to work. I don't have to try and coexist with their fans. I don't have to change channels at halftime on Thanksgiving to avoid them. I don't have to see their bad hair at the Grammys.   


The only reason Nickelback should ever be played is in the case of a Zombie Apocalypse, in which case they can be played at full volume to repel waves of the undead (if survival is really worth putting your ears through that).


What have they been rewarded for being the worst band of all time? Since 2001, they've sold more than 15.5 million records. On top of that, they've were the most-played band in the U.S. last year, with a song played every 30 seconds on any given radio station.  Which just goes to prove there is no hope for humanity. 


This doesn't mean that they are good.  Just because Busch beer makes millions off poor, white trash doesn't make it good beer, does it?


Worse still, Nickelback is poised for yet another full-frontal, ear blitzkrieg.  Today is the release date for their next auditory molestation. The album is called Here and Now and here and now over a thousand people have already given it an average rating of 4.5 stars on iTunes. I just don't see how this is possible.


Why is Nickelback the worst band ever? Why are they the most hated band? Why should you not buy their new album?


Here's the list of ten reasons I hope to answer those questions:    




10. They wrote the song “Something in Your Mouth.” (you're so much cooler when you leave it in your mouth/'cuz you look so much cuter with something in your mouth)


9. A pickle got more fans than them on Facebook in a matter of weeks: http://pickleback.webs.com/


8. They get boo’d off stage and have rocks thrown at them.  Granted, this was a crowd of Portuguese metal heads, but if these people can tell Nickelback is terrible, what is that saying about the Nickelback fans?




7. They wrote the song “Sex” (sex is always the answer, never a question)


6.  Besides being an over-compressed, over-rated band with no dynamic range and a fan base consisting of 20 year old males with an affinity towards Vin Deisel movies, they also rip off music.  The problem is . . . they rip off music from themselves.  Come on guys . . . real rockstars rip off their music from other musicians.  A fan uncovered that two of their songs sounded quite a lot alike (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4258547).  Probably because those two songs are the same. Check it out: 




5. Their songwriting in general. Every song sounds exactly the same. If you can get past the overly-distorted guitars that only play power chords, gravel-vocals that sound like constipation and a mash of buzzing mediocrity to actually listen to the lyrics all you'll find are recycled, immature themes and rhyme schemes.  Look at the rhyme scheme in the song "Photograph:" 


photograph/laugh
red/head
up/up
workout/out
. . . 
door/floor
door/for


4. Look at the critics! This isn't a very convincing argument, I know. But when you google a great band, you simply don't get thousands of pages of why that band is THE WORST band of all time (check out Urban Dictionary definitions of 'Nickelback' for a fun time).  Let's face it, would you pay good money to see a low-rated movie that consistently gets criticized as being the "Worst Movie of All Time"? Probably not. Unless it's the Fast and Furious (which ironically has the same fan base as Nickelback). Word Magazine readers voted Nickelback the "Worst Band of All Time" by a landslide. The Vancouver Sun described Nickelback as one of the most despised bands in the world. The Los Angeles Times wrote, "Nickelback's music isn't for hipsters or the illuminati. It's for people who don't want to have to think."

and here are just a few reviews of the band over the past decade:

Silverside Up (2001): "if you're looking for originality, you might want a full refund instead of a Nickelback"––Rolling Stone

The Long Road (2003): "Brazenly consistent, if unimaginative." ––Rolling Stone

The Long Road (2003): "Nickelback can now afford a little more time in the studio and a little more time to indulge themselves, and they turn out the same record, only slicker, which only highlights just how oppressively and needlessly sullen this group is." ––Allmusic

All The Right Reasons (2005): "All the Right Reasons is so depressing, you're almost glad Kurt's not around to hear it." ––Rolling Stone

 All The Right Reasons (2005): "Like all Nickelback releases before it, All The Right Reasons was made for all the wrong ones and follows all the formulas and cliche's you should be bored to death of by now."––Tiny Mix Tapes

Dark Horse (2008): "Nickelback are a gnarled, vulgar band reveling in their ignorance of the very notion of taste, lacking either the smarts or savvy to wallow in bad taste so they just get ugly, knocking out knuckle-dragging riffs that seem rarefied in comparison to their thick, boneheaded words."––Allmusic

3. A recent petition to stop Nickelback from playing this Thanksgiving at the Detroit halftime show has received well over 50,000 signatures.  The change.org petition states, "this game is nationally televised, do we really want the rest of the US to associate Detroit with Nickelback? Detroit is home to so many great musicians and they chose Nickelback?!?!?!"

2. Possibly the easiest, most surface-level answer to this question is the fans.  Nickelback has single-handedly caused a pandemic of doucheness.  It has taken over and created the 21rst century tool. You know the type.  They’re the guys who get the Chinese symbol for “Bro” tattooed on their bodies.  They’re the guys who pay $9 to watch Michael Bay movies.  They’re the guys who wear Affliction t-shirts.  And they’re all around us . . .

1. The #1 reason Nickelback is the WORST band of all time?  This guy: 


In 2008, Chad Kroeger was awarded the "Douche Bag of the Year Award" by the Guardian because he is a, "Self-important drunk driver and propagator of the worst music ever. With bad hair."


Well there you have it. Despite the fact that we all know the words to "How You Remind Me," it's not 2001 anymore. Let's stop giving this painfully generic, highly overrated band another multi-million dollar paycheck. It would make my commute to work much more pleasant.

Absolutely hilarious and 100% accurate. Nicely written.

You are an idiot ) Here is no objectiv reasons, only youre thinks.

This is all crap. You can't give even a good reason why they are bad. All this is YOUR opinion of them and if your so against them don't listen to them. You can't tell people they are the worst band ever if you don't even have factual evidence to back it up. Giving a song name and lyrics is not a point. EVERY band/singer will get bad reviews from critics and every band/singer will get many good reviews to compensate for the bad ones. So shut up and stop giving out false information. Next time give REAL proof that is not bias or opinionated.

Hilarious. 100% true.

I only recently found out people didn't like nickelback... I have no idea why! They don't deserve the crap the internet gives them. Their songs are catchy and I know all of the lyrics. Also, you should really remove anything having to do with appearance. I like them for how they sound, not how they look. And if you want to complain about what a singer is singing about, complain about eminem. Nickelback sings mostly about love, making love and other human emotions, while he raps about... Well the opposite.

I don't like Nickelback, so I don't listen to them. Leave them and their fans alone.

More objective less subjective i know its difficult if its about music, but if you're going to make a page about something atleast put some thought into it. TO be honest your lack of objectivity makes you look as ignorant and as culturally depraved as the very band and fans you mock. Im going to be honest i dont like ANY alternative rock band because all of their songs sound exactly the same. But most of the music currently being put out is fking horrible, i dont consider myself a hipster because hipsters themselves are just mainstream faggots, but most of the mainstream music is crap with no real message or depth. And if it does have some sort of "depth" its usually a facade while in fact being totally shallow.

Anonymous

They really ARE the worst band ever, but it was poorly argued. You really only made like one or two good points in the entire article.

i was gonna point out the flaws in this page but there are oh so many. all it really does is prove the internets seemingly perpetual hate for a decent band is completely unfounded. just conformists jumping on a band wagon. no nickelback isnt the greatest band around, they are a little overplayed and maybe chad should get a haircut. but their songs are catchy, he's got a good voice and most importantly they are fairly easy to relate to lyrically.
clearly they are doing something right though cause despite all the net rage they hold strong and are still hitting it up on the charts. all this page has really done is make you look like an ignorant musical bigot, and a trolling tool.
i will add this though - in Aus we dont have the nickelback fanboys you make reference to; perhaps they are what has soured your experience with the band?

Wow, look at you, another ignorant internet troll. If you hate them so much change the radio channel, or you know buy a CD or an iPod and listen to that instead. This whole blog is pure idiocy, douchebags like you are the reason why hatred exists in this world. Oh and uh, get your facts straight before you start posting crap all over the internet because honestly nobody cares about your OPINION, which as far as I, and most others can tell, is what this post is: the opinion of an idiotic, loudmouthed douchebag who evidently doesn't know how to change the radio channel or plug in an iPod!!!

HAHAHA Thank you! They are fucking terrible. Anyone who defends them needs to go live in a cave and not include themselves in the rest of society. And whoever said that they are an alternative rock band, fuck off. You obviously don't understand music genres. Try The Temper Trap or Powderfinger. They are mostly alternate rock groups apart from a few songs. Nickelback is purely Pop Rock and is worse then Nicki Minaj. From the section of society that hasn't lost their mind.

If you don`t like them then stop listening their music, why bother, i hate other bands and i don`t need to write a blog to let you know which ones are, i really don`t know why im wasting my time here with people who display thoughts of a neanderthal.

>ALL NICKELBACK SONGS SOUND THE SAME

>only shows How You Remind Me and Someday

Bitch please, as if other bands don't have one or two songs that sound similar, the only argument people use for that is exactly only these two songs, and they clearly aren't the only songs they've ever written.

As for the other reasons, yeah, i agree with some of them.

S.E.X and Something in Your Mouth are terrible, actually the whole Dark Horse album was abysmal with those horrible tunes talking about sex and drinking. That said, i am a Nickelback fan, but that doesn't mean i'm too retarded to not be able to criticize a band i like.

To tell the truth, they were good before, Curb, The State and Silver Side Up are decent Nirvana-inspired grunge albums, even their lyrics were better before, but then it's all downhill from The Long Road onwards, when they started these shit tunes talking about sex/drugs/drinking.

All the butthurt fans didn't pay any attention to detail and just said "turn it off then" which was one of the issues, mentality of the typical Nickelback fan.

Okay look, How can so many people like something THAT bad without using mind tricks in easily suggested minds like twilight and icp? Clearly they cant be as bad as you think they are.

Anonymous

Objective reason: Chad Kroeger has stated in interviews that he constructs music that sells, he listens to everything he can, deconstructs it, then copies whatever he thinks will sell, thats his approach to creating music. It doesn't come from some inner turmoil, or from a desire to create art, it comes from a desire to make as much money as possible.

Okay, FIRST OF ALL... you're an idiot. SECONDLY... you're argument is invalid. THIRD... You need a life. FOURTH... This whole page is based off of your opinions. FIFTH... if they are so "hated", they WOULDN'T be so famous. I'm not a HUGE Nickelback fan, but I do enjoy listening to their music every once in a while. SOME of their songs have good messages in them and so what if they don't have the most creative tunes? They still make more than you could ever dream of. This page is stupid and the creator of the page is pathetic if this is all you have to do with your life. Hate on a band that made it from nothing and worked very hard to get to where they are. Maybe your time would be better spent doing something you are good at instead of making a page that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

While you have your 10 reasons not to like Nickelback, I can provide you 20 reasons to love them. I respect your opinion but it does not necessarily mean that I agree with them.

who ever wrote this is just a complete idiot! why bother hating on a band that clearly have talent or wouldn't be successful.

"Nickelback is far from 'grunge' and a disgrace to it."

I meant they were a grunge band inspired by Nirvana in Curb and The State, their first two albums.

Grunge is a genre known for heavy distorted guitar sounds and lyrics usually about things like social alienation, apathy, confinement, and a desire for freedom. You can clearly notice the grunge influences in old Nickelback tracks like Little Friend, Pusher, Sea Groove, Fly, Breathe, Leader of Men, Not Leavin' Yet and Hold Out Your Hand.

Even Silver Side Up, which is the first album where they were beginning to sound less grunge and more pop rock still has some tracks that sound like grunge.

Wheter you like Nickelback or not is irrelevant, but they were a grunge band before, they had a grunge sound and they had grunge lyrics.

Now let me ask you what kind of music you listen to exactly? All of that is you opinion. Everyone has there opinion of them so that doesn't mean you need to give yours. It's pointless. Why did you even post this? Do you think people who listen to Nickelback now are going to be like, "Well shit better now listen to them because of this dumbass who posted his opinions on the internet."? Is that what you thought? Hm well you down right wrong. I give you heads up on "Second Douche Bag of the Year Award". Good day sir.

It's people like YOU who prove there's no hope for humanity. Your type also still believes that NASA faked the Apollo moon landing mission. I'm not their biggest fan myself, but Nickelback has plenty more good songs than any band that deserves to be called the "worst band of all time". I wouldn't be surprised if you came up with every single one of those quotes yourself and simply credited them on others. Someone should be throwing rocks at YOU right now.

Let me ask you something: how could the worst band of all time ever sell FIFTY MILLION ALBUMS, HUH?!? Think of THAT before you post your intelligence-free opinions on the Internet for everyone to read and ridicule.

Lmao! The whole time I was reading this I laughed! Why? Because clearly you're just jealous That they ARE BETTER than yourself. Like you sat here saying how many Rewards and things that they have won and got to do. They must be good if thats the case! Like really people hate alllll you want to, but at the end Of the day they're better than most bands! Let's face it people they are good and you are making yourself look stupid making a page saying all this stuff then adding "because they suck" to the end of it. Haha people need to pull their heads out of there ass and gain some common sence!

The comments from Nickelback fans saying "FUCK U DON'T LIKE EM DONT LISTEN TO EM DEY MUST BE GOOD OR ELSE DEY WOULDNT BE FAMOUS, DEY GOT MOOR MONEY DEN U!"
Those comments are hilarious. I don't really hate Nickelback, but they are pretty bland and boring at times, and they're really not that good, in my opinion. And all you butthurt fans saying this person "Doesn't have a life", well that's pretty ironic, you must not have a life either if you have time to post a comment on a blog about why Nickelback is bad. Hypocritical douchebags.

Not convinced.. This was a waste of time reading this.. Get your facts straight.. Debates arent won by emotional opinions..

Couldn't agree more. I also didn't know Nickelback received so much hate. I think if you enjoy the music, then listen to it, if you don't, then don't. It's like an art piece, only people who can relate and appreciate the message will like it. Who cares if it's "generic", it's better than the commercial music these days.

Anonymous

All I'm saying is that if you want generic, check out the commercial music these days. At least the lyrics Nickelback writes means something. No fancy electronic effects to make up for a lack of musical talent. And yet we all listen to it

I've heard of Nickelback, but not once have I ever listened to their music. I'm a pretty open person about music, I have many genres I love... namely that of alternative music so I thought I just had to search them up to judge them for myself. So I searched up their song about sex, and I listened to it for a while and I thought... uh-huh this sounds alright, why does everyone hate them and what's wrong with it? Then a few seconds into it, I found myself hating it, even loathing it. They're the WORST band, PERIOD I have ever listened too... Seriously, I mean In all honest I have no idea why I went from liking it then to hating it seconds later, It's a god damn mystery. It's as if Nickelback has found the holy grail to producing the worst music ever, now all we need is for someone to find the holy grail to produce the best music ever... and we'll have a war on our hands.

Anonymous

These are very valid reasons, It's just they weren't explained in depth. For example, the lead singer is a douche because... well, look at his lyrics. His lyrics are degrading women, they objectify women to simple sexual objects where he says that she'd look better with something in her mouth (which he refers to his penis, obviously). Whoever likes this music is awfully oppressed in some manner, or just hates women. If you like Nickelback, and you feel the need to defend it... just remember your music tastes change with your maturity, and right now your maturity is at it's growing point... you'll move onto better things, I promise.

You gave 10 reasons that they are considered the worst band? I give you just one:
Because it is a fad to hate on Nickelback. Simple as that. They have as much to hate as any other well known band. People just found it funny to hate on them, and now suddenly millions do, just because.
The lack of any actual reason on your top10 proves that.

What are you talking about? The author gives plenty of concrete facts, like that they WERE booed off stage, and chad DID win the douchbag of the year award, and over 50000 people DID sign a petition to prevent them from playing at that game. Also, listing rhyme schemes and lyrics is a valid point because it accurately portrays their total lack if talent and creativity, because it is A CONCRETE FACT that those stupid lyrics and rhymes where IN THEIR SONGS!!!

Okay, I'm just going to say it, your rhyme scheme argument is BS and here's why. Let It Be, written by one of the greatest bands ever around, has the worst rhyme scheme I can think of that first comes to mind. I mean, let it be/let it be
let it be/let it be, agree/let it be. And I still like the Beatles more. Also, Hendrix was boo'd off stage at a Monkeys concert, and he is a rock legend. Of course metal fans won't enjoy Nickelback, it's stupid to think otherwise. Their grunge music is pretty terrible (and tasteless), I'll give you that... I love their rock and country rock though, but if I had to pick my favorite bands of all time, they wouldn't even make the top 20. In lieu of that, I can't disagree with a lot of what you've said, but I can say that most of your argument is baseless and subjective.

Nickelback is great. anyone who thinks they suck well you're just self-absorbed people with no life.

I see you giving opinion, not reasons.

Wow, okay I was curious as to why people were hating on this band so much. Keep in mimd that I'm no fan of them nor do I listen to there music. Appearantly, according to your oh so logical reasoning, this band should be hated because everyone hates them and their music sucks. So, what you're saying is, if for some possible reason, critics start saying how Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber make the the best music of all time, and petitions go up to make a part two to Fifty Shades of Grey with over 100,000 signatures, we should also want those things too? If the critics you mentioned started supporting Nickelback, will you forget about this post and write one about why people should listen to them? Also, if you consider that 'sexually explict content', then you should listen to any song from Blood on the Dance Floor. I'm not going to insult you but please, give ACTUAL reasons to hate this band next time, okay? :)

I agree with your article that you had written, however, there are some points that I don't, and I'm not supporting nor am I defending Nickelback here in this post, but even they would call you retarded, and that is just a fucking joke right there...

For example, there's an incidence where they are terrible on critics when they write a post on blogs related to Nickelback. Whomever relies on critic for a reliable source of any kind is completely retarded, because they're only there to inform the general population that have never listened to that album/artist/song before, or any person who wants to be a fan and wants to see what would the album be, from the critic's perspective - if it were to be positive and negative, for their final result of the album; not the fans' perspective.

Besides critics this an another reason why in this article why they're deplorable and intolerable to listen to, you put in; however, you mentioned that they were thrown rocks at to once during a concert. Sure, it is a sign that they're terrible, but this only happened one time in Portugal. It doesn't necessarily mean that they're the "worst band" [quote unquote] out there, there are far more worse bands out there than that of Nickelback, and that one is true.

The rest of this article is what I completely agree with fully. They are completely overplayed on radio stations (local/national pop and rock stations); overused for the media to use for samples for sporting event or television ads (because of the constant exposure that the artist has); redundant themes and instrumentation practice isn't required for anyone of their songs; repetitively use the same song structures (easy guitar chords and playing), and THEY do not use any other songs to separate itself from the rest of their songs or bands to be original, mainly at this point in their careers: they can do such a thing because they have the pinnacle of their careers. They rarely ever use anything besides the usage of 4/4, 3/4, and 5/4 (once-in-awhile), for their time-signatures. Their lyrical commentary is completely useless in my eyes and even for my ears to listen to.

And I have more offensive lyrical content that I listen or had heard on a daily basis, which it is not meant for the the general population to listen to, nor will they like or laugh at it. Nickelback has an extremely retarded lyrical content that makes your IQ drop and our generation decrease their entire intelligence in one shot. They're not even worth my time and energy. Every song is about your "typical" idea or world that rock and metal is in the status quo idea in the music world (from a pop perspective), and that would be individuals have: drugs, sex and alcohol, that is why I feel as if they're a fucking joke, to the point where they take it to the extreme, which the joke isn't funny anymore. Oh wait - it's only hilarious for a second - and then, it is useless... And they're making rock and metal a fucking joke in one shot. I'm not lying about that statement here. Their song titles are "S.E.X.", "Bottoms Up," "Something In Your Mouth", and the list goes on and on in their discography. All of their lyrics simply imply it and it's right in your fucking face the entire time. There's no way that Nickelback writes these lyrics because if they do, they're on the same level as a 6th grader would write anything. Or, their record label writes it for them which would be self-explanatory, if they were to do this, whatsoever - it will then result in more wages and more exposure in airtime on radio stations for them - if they were to do it that way compared to writing it on their own. Either way, these are completely trash and only made simply for white trash people who live in a trailer park and/or people who are on Maury.
