    Pretty sure the show will sell out regardless and that they really couldn't care. Nothing they haven't heard before, just a new and creative way of putting it.

    Their latest album has been on the billboards hard rock chart for 26 weeks, is currently number 5 and peaked at one.

    They have a lot of songs I do like and a lot of songs, not so much.
    If you're out there in a party/drinking mood, they're great to drink to. Do I take them seriously as a band where I think they are pushing the industry creatively and politically/socially? not in the slightest.

    I'd give that guy a $45 raise.

    All their songs are the same. Guitar solo at the start, drums kick in, rest of the song goes off. Local DJs played 'You Remind Me' and one of their songs over one another and the similarities were uncanny.
    Worst part is my wife loves them. Had to go to a show once and I was the sober one. It was awful.

    Bland, boring songs that all sound the same for the most part.

    This is all a lead up to Canada's commemoration of the War of 1812 Bicentennial. We sent Celine Dion to establish a beachhead and then followed that with Justin Bieber and Nickelback.

    All new ways to bedevil our neighbours to the South! :D

    I notice you didn't mention Carly Rae Jepsen. Sneaky fucking Canucks.

    To be honest, I never heard of her before yesterday. Hard to keep up with our offensive weapons.
