I don't understand the hate on Nickelback

  1. Someone tell me why. I don't know shit about them, and have never listened to their stuff. I'm guessing they're a pop/rock band. That right? I just don't get the hate. Do they suck that bad?

    The end.

    They are not pop rock. Actually, their stuff is kind of more hard rock.

    Why the hate? They are just an easy target. Sell bazillions of records and they are just not hipster rock.

    I've wondered the same thing...unless they've done something to piss off the masses, I've heard much worse music.

    My favorite song by them is Burn it to the Ground. Good jam.

    It became a fad to hate on them, even though they were a pretty good band. And, that trend to hate on someone or something just because it’s “the in thing” to do continues today. See Dungeon for further reference...

    Their song "Animals" was in a MotoGP video years ago that everyone loved, then the US collectively got together and decided they hate them. I blame Chad Kroeger's haircut.

    Also, they're Canuckistanian. For some reason, we love Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) and Shania Twain, but we had Nickelback, in part, because they're Canadian. We had to invent a reason and that was as good as any.
