you're taking people's complaints and reading them literally. why?
are people not allowed to make jokes at the expense of nickelback without being unhealthy, hateful people?
Because that is what they wrote. There were a lot jokes (you know... things that are funny) and I didn't rip on those. Calling mean spirited comments a joke doesn't make them a joke. What exactly is funny about reacting to them getting married by saying "there is no god"? The only type of person who might find it funny is someone who hates both of them far too much already. Anyone else will just roll their eyes or dismiss it. And jerks like me will call you out for it.
I mean really... you start a thread hating on someone, and then get upset when you are called out for it?
...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.
It seems to be Nickleback much more than any other band. If I see a thread ripping on a rock band like this one, there is a 95% chance its Nickleback.
Regardless there is a huge difference between not liking a bands music and ripping on them for getting married.
Again, if you don't like Nickleback, then why even bother starting a thread about Chad Kroeger getting married?
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.
Which begs the question why bother hating at all? Its a waste of time and energy. It is interesting and true tho that people who do this jsut like hating on things in general, and it doesn't matter what it is. There's not much dif between Nickleback haters and new Star wars haters. The type of person is exactly the same. Angry nerd-rage type people.
