Why I Hate Nickelback.

Nickelback is a terrible, terrible band. They don't bring anything to the table that interests me. Their talent is almost non-existent. All of their songs sound the same, if not identical. This might seem like a pretty big statement, but I HAVE PROOF. After seeing this video years ago, it confirmed what i have thought about them all along. That they use the same song over and over with different words.

It's worth noting that there was some editing to make these songs fit together, for example, slight tempo change so that they line up. Other than that (from what i can tell), everything else is in tact with the two songs (key, general composition, aka chorus, verse etc.).

You can make up your own mind about them, but my mind is set. Maybe i was swayed by this video, maybe not. Either way, i never really liked any of their crap anyways... this was just the nail in the coffin.

P.S. I stole this original picture of Nickleback from here. Be sure to enlarge the picture at the top of this page to see my photoshopping (read: MS paint) skills.

If I say I never heard of them will you just take is as "oh That Aunt Nene!!!" I will believe you!

In fairness, I'm sure you can do this with a lot of bands.

But their songs do sound a lot alike.

Hey, just have to mention: Great job on the photoshopping! Didn't anyone else enlarge the picture?

Also loved your "proof"--pretty cool. Being a mom, I had no difficulty at all listening to both songs at the same time!

I guess you should call them the one hit wonders since they seem to have only one song? I like the photoshop...I need a lesson.
