Everyone Loves/Hates Nickelback [VIDEO]
Nickelback seems to be one of the most polarizing groups in Rock ‘N Roll. Whether someone is just drinking the Haterade due to the bands success, or they just legitimately don’t like the bands music, it’s been debatable since their debut…everyone loves OR hates Nickelback.
Recently, we told you about an online petition setup in an effort to have Nickelback removed from playing halftime at the Packers vs. Lions game on Thanksgiving Day at Ford Field in Detroit, MI. So maybe not everyone…but does this mean that Detroit hates Nickelback?
Personally, I’m not much of a Nickelback fan…but, I have heard really great things about their live shows. I mean ‘Side of a Bullet’ uses a solo from the late ‘Dimebag’ Darrell Abbott of Pantera, and Nickelback dedicated that song to Abbott. In my mind, that is enough reason to at least respect the doods.
Funny Or Die did a sketch about people hating Nickelback, specifically Detroit. Check out the hilarious video below…and by the way, Dave Coulier (Uncle Joey from Full House) ain’t dead!
