The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their terrible music will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us from Nickelback!"

and I'll whisper "no."

"This is really bad butt rock, noise for people with an IQ below 70. This year we jammed stuff like shadows of the dying sun, once more aroudn the sun, the hunting party, the quantum enigma, form parts unknown, la gargola,the flesh prevails and more, stuff for people with an IQ ABOVE 150. Nickelcrap is just a waste of space"

Are people just wanking over this because it isn't a steaming pile of shite? Because I concede it isn't. Rest of the album could be said steaming pile though, but I guess I'll do the mature thing and hold judgement until I get a chance to hear the whole thing (shocking confession: I used to love these guys back in ye olden times which is why I still listen to anything new they put out, which has been torturous since 2003)

People hate them just to hate them. I have always liked Nickelback and I bought all of their albums. They were fucking awesome live too. This is coming from somebody who listens to bands like Amon Amarth, Scar Symmetry, Soilwork, Dark Tranquillity, Tool, Pink Floyd, Riverside, Godsmack, Sevendust, Type O Negative, Paradise Lost, etc. My point is that I like different kinds of shit and I'm not afraid to admit it.

Not a bad song at all. Certainly better than the heavy side of Here & Now.

I have a couple problems with the track (personally), though:

1) The production. Maybe it comes from a lot of Alter Bridge lately (although, I wouldn't call them raw), but the production seemed to really soften the tone of the guitars to a terrible extent. There's no real edge to them.

2) That pronounciation of "revolution." I sometimes do odd pronounciations just to preserve the flow and keep a note easier, but that was cringe-inducing. (For me, anyway. I dunno if it's accent or what.)

Yeah but it's top 20 for Nickelback songs. They have about four songs I would rate above a 3.5. The bottom of the top 20 the songs would already have well started to be rated around a 2.5. That's just my opinion though. This song is a 2.5 and that's just because they had lyrics they never tried to sing to before and it was released as single.

I like Bob Dylan I just don't think he's amazing. Rage Against the Machine is okay too. To me RATM is more introductory to that kind of music. I'd say all four bands I mentioned plus Bob Dylan have better lyrics in that field than RATM has because like you said, they ran out of ideas.

Super... I used to think that too but then I
realized in terms of what nickelback aims for,
which is consistent catchy music. When you look
at it like that they were easily the worst of
the bunch.

besdies, compared to all the other post-grunge
bands releasing right now nickelback is
releasing the best material. don't expect pink
Floyd, ac/dc or Fleetwood but for what they are
they do it pretty good. they may not be as good
as the current kings of post right now (alter
and the foo) but still solid. their lyrics are
cringy tho

I evaluate the quality of their albums based on what I want to listen to. I'd rather listen to any of their first 5 albums than Dark Horse or Here and Now.
