Join Nickelback Hate Group on Facebook, Save South Florida From Here and Now Tour

God is nonexistent. Need proof? Nickelback is headed our way.

With great displeasure, Crossfade regrets to announce that Alberta, Canada "rock" band Nickelback will soon embark on their Here and Now arena tour, a 39-city trek across the United States and Canada.

On Saturday, May 5, the Chad Kroeger-lead bunch will dad-rock the BankAtlantic Center with their perplexingly marketable brand of alternative adult contemporary music, a sound the Black Keys' Patrick Carney called, "watered-down, post-grunge crap," in a recent issue of Spin.

South Florida, we must band together and stop Nickelback from infiltrating our up-and-coming, culturally relevant music scene. Keep reading to find out how.



Ugh!

This past November, 55,833 Detroit Lions fans signed an electronic petition to replace Nickelback as the Thanksgiving Day game halftime entertainment. Citing the Motor City's collective disapproval and a concession stand conspiracy, petitioners pleaded with team owners to reconsider the inclusion of music's biggest black eye in one of the most-watched games of the year.

"Nickelbacks' music doesn't even reflect a musical genre that has ever been popular in the city. It is not rock and roll, it's a nasty hybrid of the worst manufactured music on the planet," wrote one disgruntled fan.

"I'm from Alberta, home of Nickleback, and I would like to stop them from performing anywhere else," quipped one petition supporter. "They have been giving Canadians and Albertans a bad name since they puked out that 'How You Remind Me' thing way back when, and I think it is time they are stopped."

Sadly, shit music prevailed after the exhaust smoke cleared. Nickelback performed at halftime and the Packers defeated the Lions 27-15. Worse, Canada defeated America.

If you love this country, you'll support Crossfade's effort to stop Nickelback from playing South Florida. Join our Facebook group and refuse the band's $225 VIP ticket package, punch a Nickelback fan in the stomach, and restore dad rock to its American roots.

USA! USA!

Whether you Love 'em or Hate 'em, it appears Nickelback's here to stay! If you love them, buy a couple shirts and throw one onstage at your next concert ;)If you hate them, buy a doormat so you can wipe your feet on them daily :D http://www.gipigltd.com/

All this Nickelback hate is old news. Yes, we get it, Nickelback sucks. Now move on. And by the way, this is a fucking tour booked by Live Nation, which means your little internet petition will not stop the show. Funny how people seem to hate this band so much, but they're still selling millions of records and touring the world year after year. Hmm, something's telling me people may be lying a little...this bandwagon is old.

Finally people are jumping on board with hating butt rock.  I blame Pearl Jam for creating such a ass hat genre.  Thanks a lot.  I hope Nickelback and King of Leon get assassinated, along with the rest of butt rock.

These idiots obviously don't like Nickelback.and if there was a petition signed, and if i were apart of the band i would do Florida a great favor and take a shit in a bag and park it in front of the Atlantic Center. Then continue to my next show.Maybe a bit gruesome and sick, BUT WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU THINK ROCK N ROLL IS??

As for Nickelback they are always welcome to the one and only Golden State.

People have the right to listen to what they want. I don't like any of these bands but if someone wants to pay $20-$80 to check them out thats their biz. I'm sure a lot of the bands you listen suck ass because you feel the need to push how "cool" you think you are on other people who don't really give a sh*t. You have the right to listen to your p*ssy Bullsh*t let others listen to their bullsh*t. To me MOST of the music coming out now sucks anyway.

What the fuck is the matter with you you stupid fucking arsehole? Do you forget that millions of people actually love Nickelback? yet you want to stop all the fans from seeing them live just because you don't like the band!? What fucking difference does it make to you? It's not difficult, just don't go and see the band live you fucking retarded CUNT!

What the fuck is wrong with you, because you are such massive pricks you are trying to stop a band coming to your city because YOU don't like them.How about you ignore that they are coming and listen to your own music and let their fans go and watch them you self centred twat!

"Nobody wants to buy huh"?

Then explain why they have the #2 single on the iTunes Store's Rock section. I actually don't listen to them, but they've been rocking a long time and plenty of people like them. I bet you got a whole lot of shit in your playlist not a lot of people like. Should we band together and get those bands banned from playing in Florida?

If I was a NB fan I would take offense with the record label and radio stations for pushing this simplistic, average garbage on me, knowing full well that my feeble mind would connect with the mindless lyrics. Then again, If I was a NB fan, I probably would have never picked up on that.

Well, in his defense, NB only plays quarter note drum beats, they dont use actual chords, mostly power chords, in sections of four, up, down, up, down, just like every other mimicking band does across the land now. On top of that the mindless lyrics about drinking and racing and fucking and the only people that seem to listen to them are kids, strippers, jocks and nascar fans. All of which, I could live without. While all of this is happening, great bands cant book gigs like that, only because the mass droves of cattle flock to the mindless shit they want to call music and sell for MONEY, which tends to make the rest of us actual music fans a little resentful. They play music thats easy to listen to and understand for the average douche.

are you a fucking idiot? Quarter drum beats build up the most common music timing of 4/4 so everyone who plays in 4/4 isn't a musician? Power chords as well means you can't play your instrument, I guess I should inform Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page and maybe I should try and tell Eric Clapton that he can't play his guitar. Next time you comment about music make sure you know what you are on about you retard.

@robiwan: The Beatles weren't playing Chopin but that didn't stop the world from falling in love with them. So who fucking cares how NB's drum beats are except for elitist douche bags on blogs? You look like a douche bag. You are, don't lie.

Did I really just read someone mention Chopin, The Beatles, and Nickleback in the same response?

Also, the Beatles played actual notes and knew how to play an instrument.
