My respect levels just dropped for you. It will take great effort & music to get them back up. Nickelback indeed.
You know...I don't really get why people turn on groups. TONS of people rip on Nickelback and now say how much they suck....when their sound is no different than all those years ago with The State. It seemed like people liked them well enough then.
AND....I still think the guitar riffs are great, it's lame top 40 rock....but I'd sure rather hear that than a lot of this emo shit and Nu Metal shit!
The same thing happened to Creed years ago....one year people were loving them and chicks were creaming their jeans for them.....5 years later....it was trendy to make fun of them and call them shit....when nothing in their sound changed at all.
Hey....believe me...I'm not above having my guilty pleasures and owning up to it.
There are a ton of people like me.....I just admit it! lol
Believe me their are plenty of Metal heads from back in the day that were in the pit at every Metallica/Slayer show that came through town.....but when they are alone and nobody is looking....they can sing to Journey's "Open Arms" just as much as the next person! lol
