Nickelback on Here and Now tour
Proof that God is nonexistent struck us like an 18-wheeler going 65 MPH in a school zone when Nickelback announced their Here and Now arena tour earlier this year.

We asked our readers to join the "stop Nickelback from infiltrating our up-and-coming, culturally relevant music scene" movement, but few responded. In fact, we were highly criticized, labeled "massive pricks" and a "highly retarded cunt."

The reaction was hurtful at first, but humbling in hindsight. Who are we to stop a shitty Canadian band from playing South Florida?



Despite being one of the world's most insipid radio rock bands, Nickelback is unbelievably popular. Over 13 million people "Like" the Alberta, Canada quartet on Facebook, that's about four million more than the Rolling Stones. They've racked up six Grammy nominations, 21 platinum certifications, and 12 Juno awards.

Lead singer Chad Kroeger has an estimated net worth upwards of $50 million, and their tours are giant cash cows milked by power chords and simple drum patterns.

Love them ("I am aware that I am a Nickelback fan") or hate them ("I'd rather be stuck on the Palmetto, with NO A/C while having VIOLENT diarrhea!"), Nickelback is coming. And a petition isn't going to stop that from happening.

Here and Now Tour. With Nickelback with Bush, Seether, and My Darkest Days. Saturday, May 5. BankAtlantic Center, One Panther Pkwy., Sunrise. The show starts at 6 p.m. and tickets cost $17.50 to $86.75 plus fees via ticketmaster.com. Call 954-835-7825 or visit bankatlanticcenter.com.

Just what the world needs, another anti-Nickelback sentiment, which is merely a trend which people with empty lives much like yourself need.  Pretentious Douchewaffles much like yourself really need to get a life.

It's not gonna happen anyway... Musician Chad Kroeger died while on a personal vacation in Turks and Caicos early this morning from injuries sustained in a Jet-Ski accident - April 17, 2012

Stay vigilant and stay strong. They may still play but they will not crush our dreams.

We shall over co-o-ome. We shall over come.

Ummm, who would ever defend that shit "music". Oh sorry, i forgot we were in the u.s. People like minaj, biebz, and wocka flocka are as retarded as can be and for sure have more fans than nickelbitch. Let dumb people be dumb, i dont want them to like what i like anyways.

Ah, another anti-Nickelback article.  Like all others, it's cliche, tiresome and contributes absolutely nothing. 

Mr Gonzalez, I guess you should call yourself the Nickelback of columnists?

He didn't die darling ;) But keep up the hope :sarcasm:

Yep

Beethoven, possibly John Lennon, have the right to call music 'shit'.  I doubt that you do.  I wasn't defending their music, I was just wondering when these clumsy efforts to appear cool by tearing down one band are going to end?  This is boring the shit out of me.

"i dont want them to like what i like anyways."

Of course you don't.  That's the hipster national anthem.  You're an idiot who is only allowed to like shit most people don't.

I should, but surely that'd be copyright infringement. Thanks for reading, Yep.

Gee who can argue with that sentiment.

And good luck to you in continuing to find diverse and relevant topics for your readers.

Honestly, I agree. Hating Nickelback is about as unoriginal as it gets.
