I don't think I'll ever understand why people hate Nickelback so much. What, is it the creative lyrics? The sweet guitar riffs? Maybe they just think Chad Kroeger (lead singer) looks like a douche. Whatever the reason, it's ridiculous. Anyone who's really listened to a decent amount of their stuff knows Nickelback is a talented band, even if they are a little too commercial.
If you're a fan, please comment. I'm sick of feeling all alone out here.
