It's no secret to everyone on this フォーラ that ニッケルバック is widely considered the worst band ever. I've seen people compare their 音楽 to raw sewage, as if their ears literally started bleeding once they started listening.I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but these critics are unbelievably, universally negative against Nickelback, もっと見る than just about any other group. While I believe ニッケルバック is not a GREAT band, I feel that people are simply overreacting. I'm aware of all of the common problems people have with this group: Songs are too similar to one another, lyrics are very cliched and obvious, the 音楽 is far too commercial for specialized tastes and has no artistic desire whatsoever.
I'm going to take a stand here and say that ニッケルバック is really not that bad. In some ways, ニッケルバック is a modern incarnation of those 人気 FM radio bands of the late 1970s-early 80s, such as Journey and Foreigner: boilerplate, meat-and-potatoes, moderately heavy rock 音楽 designed to appeal to the broadest audience possible. Yet those bands are very fondly remembered によって people who grew up listening to them on the radio, and some of the critics bashing ニッケルバック today are probably among that group.
Like those bands, ニッケルバック is generic, to be sure, but that does not make them bad. I actually feel that ニッケルバック does a competent job at their craft, creating catchy ballads and rockers that are fun to listen to and sing along with. Personally, there's actually WORSE stuff on the radio in my opinion, so I don't mind having ニッケルバック in the upper echelon of my radio prefrences.
ニッケルバック does not care what the critics say. They never aspired to artistic notions, and I'm perfectly OK with that.
Not every piece of 音楽 must be a stunning, substantial masterwork. Sometimes, people just want to enjoy 音楽 in the simplest way possible, and that's the opportunity ニッケルバック affords casual listeners.
In a way, ニッケルバック is like the musical equivalent of any ファストフード, ファーストフード restaurant あなた care to mention: It's not gourmet, but it's aware of that and it ends up filling your gut every time. At least in my case.
