Why. Because you dont like them. Or do like them n wouldnt expect me to like them?

My reasons for liking them are these.

Ive been into them since they had their first hit. Silver side u p was an ok album, when i was younger. Nothing amazing.

Then they released "The Long Road". Thats probably my favorite album by them. Good songs.

I like how they have a good mix of rock songs and ballady type tracks. Plus i think Chads voice is cool, certainly their distinction point.

Ive enjoyed the more Arena rock sound they have taken in recent years. Yes its more accessable and commercial, but they have still managed to rock it out. Just with bigger drums and bigger chorus's.

To be frank i just think they write good songs, i can never understand all the harsh criticism they get.

Magazines moan about Nickelbacks successful formula they choose to repeat, yet praise pop artists that cant even write their own songs?

It just irritates me. You get artists like Bon Jovi, who have to get people like Desmond Child co-writing hits for them. They dont even stay Rock N Roll as their albums go on. Getting all this acclaim, even now.

Nickelback, pump out a good rock album every few years, dont stray too far from there roots n just get slated.

Not every artist has to write a symphony orchestra on their second album to be good. Not every artist has to write amazing lyrics.

Sometimes its good just to have a nice simple rock n roll album with 3 minute songs to rock out to.

Maybe not, but the lyrics to Gotta Be Somebody are downright embarrassing.

They are ok lol. Its a typical Nickelback single though really isnt it that track. So its gonna be soppy as those are there most successful singles generally.

But then again, what rock band didnt get the biggest hits with ballads n love songs.

While id rather be rocking it, i think its kinda better they release those tracks as singles, so then the rock songs dont get overplayed n killed.

I'm not saying this to upset anyone, but there aren't many bands that I dislike more than Nickelback. I've just never gotten into them at all... to each their own. If you enjoy their music, good... I just don't.

Sometimes the radio kills bands for me... that could be why I despise them. I just hear them ALL THE FUCKING TIME on the radio.

At least you're not Canadian. You're about as likely to hear Nickelcrack on the radio every 5 minutes as you are to get stuck in traffic on the Don Valley Parkway at anytime of anyday.

I like them. Well, I own their last two albums. I don't know quite what my 'fan status' is, but either way, I'm not sure why they get so much hate. I'd rather listen to them than some of the indie bands that British radio seems to love.

All The Right Reasons has quite a few good songs on it IMO.

I think they're ok Smiley They do need to work on their setlists though. When I saw them live they played a rocker - ballad - rocker - balled - rocker - etc. Doesn't really work. Also I don't think they're great at large crowds (I saw them perform over, I don't know, 30.000 people or something).

I don't really get why people hate nickelback as much neither. But I don't really care.. The weirdest part is when people say: "nickelback has gone too commercial".. I have all their albums and they never went to any drastic musical changes so either they've always been commercial or they never were..
