But Can I Get My Time Back?


Does anyone like Nickelback? I mean that in all sincerity. I'm not trying to be bitchy or judge anyone's taste in music but I have yet to meet someone with any vested interest in this band. And it's not like I meet with indifference either, most people really really don't like them. Everytime that song "Photograph" comes on I actually get upset--I hate it that much. The lyrics are like grade 9 poetry and Chad Kroeger has this weird Cher electronic voice thing going on: "Do you believe in life after love, HO!".

If you are reading this and you or someone you know just can't get enough of Nickelback I want you to leave a comment explaining why. I think Nickelback fans deserve a forum to explain why oh why they love 'em like they do. Is it just CRTC regulations that force us to hear their songs like 23 times a day? Someone somewhere has helped them sell millions of albums right? It's great to see Canadian artists succeed but their success continues to baffle me. It was like the Spice Girls. They were the biggest group in the world and yet NO ONE would admit to owning one of their albums, but we all knew 8 year old girls and gay dudes in their 20s would keep them alive as long as they kept recording.

Nickelback, who is your obscure demographic?

Judging by the lack of responses I'd say that none of our/your friends like Nickleback. Maybe you should check out west...I can ask my brother...you ask Mel!

hm... I think this one's a bit of a mystery. I saw them once at Edgefest and they were surprisingly good. But that's maybe because I was pissed off the Cake left the stage in anger. But yeah, I'm kind of neutral about them. They're sort of just there in the background...
