    My dad operated on the drummer of Hinder. He was at the height of his MAGA Madness and therefore shouldn’t have been performing surgeries. (Or violating HIPPA for that matter) I don’t think he screwed up so the dozens of Hinder fans need worry not.

    Since we're all friends and this is a safe space one time I went to a Nickelback, Three Days Grace, and Hinder concert.

    My roommate in college came from a loaded family and that's what he wanted to do for his birthday so we went. I actually bought and listened to the Hinder CD afterwards :facepalm:

    It must have sucked to be the other guys in Nickelback because a lot of people assumed that the Tobey Maguire Spiderman song was the whole band but it was only their Cocker Spaniel of a lead singer. I think that song being massively overplayed (A song about a Hero being released in the aftermath of 9/11 might have something to do with the oversaturation) is a huge part of Nickelback backlash beginnings. Chad Kroeger probably made a fuck ton of money from that song.

    Great question. No.
    So this also means that you don’t get Chad’s Spiderman song.

    If Chad’s Spider-Man song wasn’t such a banger, it is safe to assume that The Marvel Cinematic Universe never happens. Damn it Chad, you ruined cinema!

    One of my best friends played baseball at Princeton. The team had this running joke about the Nickelback song referencing playing baseball in a bathroom. Over the years, the joke evolved into them going from ironically nickelback fans to actually traveling to go to concerts together. They played that song at my friend’s wedding reception. Like 1/4 of the attendees lost their minds, and the rest of the people were like “what the fuck…”

    Former. I actually thought they were a garden variety radio band, family friendly for the most part. So I was shocked when Chad came out like F this, F that, tripping on fucking shrooms bro!

    I'd like to circle back with you and let you know that because of your post I googled the lyrics to this song to reacquaint myself with how bad they are.

    "We all stay skinny cuz we just don't eat."

    This is singularly the worst lyric ever written. There is no filter, ironic or otherwise, that can be applied to make these words at all appreciable as anything but feces.

    I pray that someday hopefully soonish when Chad Kroger ODs on keyboard cleaner we don't do the stupid thing our culture does like when Linkin Park dude died, and defile ourselves trying to adjust our retrosepective lenses to shine a kinder light on an artist who sucked.

    Same. My friend, who hated them as well but loved/loves his dad got tickets to go to it, he said, ‘Oz, you are my friend and the only one who likes music like me. I NEED you as a friend to go to this with me.’

    It fucking sucked asshole and I just drank a lot and I completely had thrown this out of my mind till this point. The nickel back drummer seemed to be ok at least.

    It really is. The journey the poet takes the reader down where they think to themselves hornet and sonnet do not rhyme but having a little clue that the narrator might have a Boston accent makes sonnet and hornet rhyme much cleaner is thrilling. This is the best writing William Shakespeare has any association with.

    Putting Chester Bennington in the same tier as Chad Kroger is one of the biggest injustices I’ve ever seen on this board.

    Linkin Park had some albums that were fire from wire to wire.

    No, putting chester bennington and chris cornell in the same sentence is one of the bigger injustices of this board
    I'm probably the same age as you. It's not like you're cosmically predetermined to listen to all the music that's just arriving concurrent with your youth. I heard bands like Korn, Linkin Park, slipknot and Evenescense and just kinda decided i wouldn't bother.

    I'm gonna pull up there, because I know the next thing that happens is the conversation veers off the road into "yeah but Ratt?!?" and the short answer is "fuck yes, Ratt!" but that's just a totally different conversation that's only appropriate for drinking underrefridgerated beer in an unfinished basement after the kids go down

    I feel very strongly about two mutually exclusive positions.

    1) Taking a strong position about other people’s musical tastes is dumb as shit and a total hardo/douche bag move.

    2. There was never a moment in time in which Creed or Linkin Park didn’t suck ass.
