Asked by robdamel (791points) March 21st, 2011

Nickelback- Hero, Figured you out
Trapt – Headstrong
Finger eleven – Paralyzer ( im not paralyzed, but I seem to be struck by you!)

Try Spirit of the West, Save This House, Home For A Rest, or Political. Really everything by them is far, far surperior to Nickleback. They are one of my favourite bands.

@tranquilsea In your opinion. Believe it or not from a guitar/ musician standpoint Nickleback is a talented band. People call them sellouts, but that has to do with the money and airtime I believe.

@robdamel How about shinedown? Sound of Madness?

@Russell_D_SpacePoet wait, why do people call nickelback sellouts?

@robdamel, I’ve never heard them called sell-outs per se, but critics almost universally pan them as among the worst bands of all time. Usually due to the fact that several of their songs can be layered on top of each other and match up perfectly.

Who gives a shit what critics say – that you like them is what’s important. I would suggest making a Pandora station to find new stuff.

@robdamel Look around the net. Many, many people hate Nickleback.. I like what I like and don’t really care what critics or others think. I like Nickleback. I like 80’s hair metal bands, old heavy metal, etc. etc. I’m just waiting on the mullet to come back! :)

IMO Nickleback makes tight well crafted hard hitting tunes that are meant to be listened to loud as hell. Not many songs you can do that with.

3 of my all time favorite…turn up to 11 and rip! Especially the Jeff Healey tune.

@Russell_D_SpacePoet I didn’t call them sellouts. I just prefer other bands.

List, just play the album CD “Back in Black” by AC/DC you’ll know what I’m talking about……. Here’s a snippet.

@tranquilsea Wasn’t referring to you. That’s the beautiful thing about music. Everyone can find something they like. :)
