If its for real love, then all the best to them.

Either way, I don't really give a damn...

People hate Nickelback because its the "cool" thing to do.
People hate Vancouver because its the "cool" thing to do. And kind of trendy between the two

Think for yourselves people, or you are as bad as everyone else who follows the mass of people.

Exactly my point. Pop music is often more about image and marketing than interesting music that is impressive and stands out from the crowd.

The best musicians either have a combination of good technical skills, soul, and a unique style. Bieber and Nickelback don't really have any of those things.


Musicians are the "best" to those who enjoy listening to them. To say that mainstream artists are not technically good, and have no soul and style is generalization at it's most severe.

People all have different tastes, and that is awesome. But to knock an artist because they are popular is unfair. I am not a big fan of today's "Pop" music, but I do enjoy Nickelback sometimes. Yes, their "singles" are overplayed but, when you look at a CD or an artist's discography as a whole, it's often the "deep tracks" that stand out and provide the contrast to the singles.

To each, their own, I say. Why must we always bash what we disagree with?

yeah, if people dislike nickelback it's because they can't think for themselves and they're trying to be cool

Not just pop music... It's a good bet that your favorite bands were also pushed this same way, and aren't the best musicians out there either. In fact there is no 'good' or 'bad' music. It's all subjective.

it's not normal or healthy to hate something that much. I don't like Nickleback really, but I just change the station if they are on like any band I don't like. Its a whole other level to actively hate on them, and the hivemind comes in when a bunch of like minded nerd ragers gather together on a message board and try to pretend their hate is normal.

edit - BTW if you were a jazz fan you would be hating on Kenny G rather than Nickleback. Each genre has its own whipping boy, which in my mind is more support for it indeed being a hivemind thing.

What do you mean by "that much?" What degree of hatred are you talking about? Do you think people on this forum are saying "I hate nickelback!" with phlegmy emphasis on the H-word, then pricking a voodoo doll, then setting fire to a shrine or something?

I think it's important to remember that we're talking about music here. "Hating" a band doesn't require some form of sociopathy, unless you choose to read the word as that.

I hate Nickelback in the same way that I hate mushrooms: I avoid them when I can, I try to smile when I can't, and they both leave a bad taste in my mouth.

I actually never said that ALL popular musicians don't have talent. I know it probably sounded like I was inplying it. A lot of them are very skilled, and get lots of recognition and fame for it. I was just saying that record sales has doesn't always have much to do with their talent.

Many of my favourite bands have sold millions of records too, and part of it probably was due to marketing. But you can still tell that they have good style.

I mean for example, some of the negative reaction in this thread to them getting married.

comments like this:
"yet another futile attempt to try and prove his masculinity... unfortunately i will never be turned on by avril lavigne in this world again."

or this

"just the thought of her even touching his greaseball platinum blond hair (or is it brown again?) brings bile to the back of my throat.... kind of like sarah silverman when she started dating jimmy kimmel. its just gross
"


or this

"They can not be allowed to reproduce."

or this

"Can a social worker take their kids away if they practice singing in front of them?"

or this

"I feel violated..."

or this

"God help the world if they have little hooligans kids..."

or this

"DO NOT LET THEM BREED!!!!"

or this

"Make me SICK. Two overated acts, they can have each other. Nickelback makes my ears bleed and I never understood all the fuss about Avril"

or this

"So did she move out here or did Chad leave town? Just wondering cuz I gotta drive through Abby later in the week and was wondering if it would be safe."

and in your case, while you said nothing particularly inflammatory, you still started this thread, and that is your contribution to the hate zeitgeist. I mean, if you hate them that much, then why even create this thread?

edit - and actually the title of this thread contains "there is no god", so there you did say somethign inflammatory.

My apologies, dude. :)

I just get frustrated at the levels to which certain members of this forum go to prove the opposite of what you're saying. And then, when you get a little stronger in holding your position, they run away... or say you suck... or that your point is wrong... or whatever.

I honestly feel like I am listening to some of the Grade 8 and 9 children at my school when I am on CDC. I guess it is reality that I actually am listening to 13-15 year olds a lot.

Oh, well...

you're taking people's complaints and reading them literally. why?

do you honestly think the people in this thread don't believe chad kroeger should be allowed to have children? honestly? do you think they hate his music SO MUCH that they question whether Abby is safe because he lives there? I read most of those comments as being jokes. I apologize to anyone who meant them seriously.

twice now you've used the phrase "hate so much" without saying what it means. your last post attempted to, i guess, but all it seemed to suggest was that if someone negatively comments or jokes about nickelback, it's done because they "hate them so much"

at first you were talking about how unhealthy it is to "hate" something, which is true. but we're talking about music, here. the word "hate" should be taken loosely. but you don't do that, you take these comments very literally, which seems bizarre.

but instead of dwelling on how unhealthy it is to hate, you've now focused on the "hate zeitgeist" which just seems even more so.

are people not allowed to make jokes at the expense of nickelback without being unhealthy, hateful people?


you can say the same about many many unhated artists.


...So what? For every "unhated artist" that doesn't get "hated on" for being one dimensional, you can find just as many THAT DO. The difference between these "artists" is that nickelback has achieved such a ridiculous level of success that they're the punchline. They are the band we're all familiar with. They're the band that the conversation is about, so it SEEMS like they get hated more.

I'd just as soon hate on Seether, Theory of a Dead Man, Hinder, or similar bands, but since nobody talks about them, nobody does.

Remember Oasis? They suffered a similar fate.
