|Nickelback Ranked (no, Really)|
I'd never plan on doing this normally, but I saw a Nickelback ranked list
and it was terrible, so I thought I'd just make an accurate one. Nickelback
was the first rock band I listened to (my musical tastes have gone from
rags to riches, in a sense), and I've heard most of their songs. I know what
I'm talking about.
4/5 Solid album, musically and lyrically. "Leader of Men" and "Breathe" were the
only hits, but there are some great songs in here. I wish this is the kind of music
the band stuck with.
3.5/5 Nickelback's first record. This is practically a straight up grunge record, and
I'd say it's on par with Pearl Jam (I'm a Pearl Jam fan). "Sea Groove" and "Fly" are
my favorites on the record. The drumming is really good too.
Silver Side Up
3.5/5 Decent album, probably the last good one Nickelback wrote. Not everything
from it is great, but "Woke Up This Morning" and "Good Times Gone" are enjoyable.
The Long Road
3/5 Nickelback started to decline here with recycled BS like "Someday", but there
are some good songs on this album, such as "Believe It or Not", "Feelin' Way Too
Damn Good" and "Should've Listened".
All the Right Reasons
3/5 Ah, now we're to Nickelback's last 3 albums. ATRR is easily the best of them, if
not for nostalgic reasons (first rock record I ever really listened to), then for
drumming ones. "Follow You Home" and "Side of a Bullet", are quite impressive
from musical perspectives, though by this point, Nickelback's lyrics were basically
pulled out of the vaguest strains of ridiculously bad romantic comedies. "Side of a
Bullet" at least has some meaningful lyrics, though that's mostly due to the contrast
between it and the other songs.
Here and Now
2/5 Well, they tried. I admit, this album had a couple of catchy songs that I'll sing. I
love a couple of the guitar riffs, despite them being played only 30 times in the
same damn song. But I can find a similar previous Nickelback song to all 11 of the
songs on the album, which is quite lamentable. The lyrics didn't improve from Dark
1.5/5 "Burn It to the Ground" and "Just to Get High" are the only half decent songs
from this album. Maybe "This Afternoon", but the album was marred watered-down
music to the point where everything sounds so perfect and precise that I feel like
I'm listening to machines play music (and a lot of what's on here barely qualifies as
|*stands at attention Thank you|
|The point. There is none to this.|
|Nice effort on all the descriptions, but Nickelback is the cancer of Canada.|
|For a band that most musicians and music critics agree suck, I tried to be as fair and objective as possible. I don't think they're the worst band in the world, nor are they overrated (have you seen their Sputnik ratings?). It's hard to be worse than Brokencyde|
|I would love to have seen Nickelback when they first started and didn't do all this overproduced radio pop stuff. And old Nickelback isn't perfect by any means, but I think it still beats most grunge music|
|Yeah they went all pop and soft, basically every one of their singles since Photograph have sounded the exact same.|
|Oh God. I used to not mind Nickelback, but what got me is the same thing that made me stop listening to Radiohead; there music can be so depressing! |
|I don't really find Radiohead that depressing. I only started listening to them this summer, and I'm glad I did|
|Nickleback is gay as hell|
|The only thing Nickelback-related that truly matters is the fact that Chad Kroeger is engaged to Avril Lavigne. Their sons will someday write great songs that will touch our hearts... just imagine hearing "Sk8ter Boi" + "Rockstar".|
|I don't really find Radiohead that depressing|
Yeah, it's not like they try to be depressing. I still think TKoL is amazing though, i dont care what people say.
|one of the greatest bands of our generation.|
