Did someone tell Kirk Hammett Nickleback have his Wah?
Talking bout Nickelback and Metallica...
Chad in 2004 manages to sound like Hetfield does now.
Oh that chin-mullet!
I will never get past it.
They did a cover of Sad But True that was actually nice.
They'd actually be a good metal baand if they actually tried. It's just they know the butt rock sells.
Off-topic, but same with all of Limp Bizkit... if they ditched the paperweight that is Fred Durst.
this is the only Nickelback song you need to hear <3
I've seen pretty much every major rock/metal band you can think of live, and Nickelback had far and away the most crushing guitar tone I've ever heard. Tight as hell too.
The concept of this video and the song itself are awesome.
Given the topic and musings of 7 string Nickelback, this just got posted on Total Guitar...
I know he's kind of a douche himself, but I remember hearing some detailed interview (it might have been the WTF podcast?) with Adam Carolla looking back on the many years of Loveline, and being asked a question about the best and worst guests they ever had on the show. He was like "some of them were just completely vapid and had no right being on the show. The worst person we ever had was the singer from Nickelback - he was just a completely vapid dick who didn't say one worthwhile thing the entire session. He was like the dumbest blonde you could think of. But then we had a few people with a ton of substance, like Tori Amos, or maybe Robert Downey Jr." Everything I've seen with the guy backs this up entirely!
When I first heard Nickelback, I thought they were cool. The first single I ever heard was "Leader of Men," and it sounded good to my ears! When they started releasing songs off their second album, I lost all interest. After I heard a couple more that sounded virtually identical, I couldn't stand them. They did have one stompy, heavy song from a few years ago that I kinda liked, but I couldn't tell you what it was called.
I like the "modern Bon Jovi" analogy. I'd listen if it came on the radio, wouldn't pay for the privilege.
If being rich and popular is what defines success as a musician then I'd say they have every member here trumped. I'd guess they probably consider themselves to be pretty "successful".
Sounds to me like they're just trying to emulate the sound of heavier bands. It's not terrible , just not for me. Damn sure not anything I would ever pay for.
Artists should evolve , but not at the expense of being scene gobblers. They're cash cows for a lot of people, and will do as they're told.
I don't get the hate these guys have gotten through the years.. I like their stuff, easy-listened and the production on their records are always stupidly good!
They sounded like this 16 years ago so I wouldn't call them scene gobblers at all...
