I used to like these guys a lot, but man, their stuff has just not aged well at all. Not quite Simple Plan levels of whiny, but it's up there. I can only listen to them now when they're pretty far from their nu-metal selves. - Zach808
While they weren't that great to begin with, at least they were trying with their albums. Then they only sold out harder, feeding into modern teenage angst, which was when I called quit with these "singers". - Swellow
They pretty much were my favorite band as a kid. Now, I only listen to Iridescent or The Little Things Give You Away. Those two songs are beautiful. - cjWriter1997
Nickelback is a Canadian rock band formed in 1995 in Hanna, Alberta, Canada. The band is composed of guitarist and lead vocalist Chad Kroeger, guitarist, keyboardist and backing vocalist Ryan Peake, bassist Mike Kroeger, and drummer Daniel Adair.
Somehow, I've actually softened on these guys. Don't get me wrong, I still despise their attempts at being preachy in songs like If Everyone Cared, but I can kinda see the appeal of their dirtier rockstar ass side. I still don't like them, but I've heard worse. - Zach808
Who would even listen to Nickelback in the first place? - Entranced98

The whole Spanish Numbers (Referring to Uno, Dos and Tres) trilogy really shows how far they fell of the hook. Thankfully they're building themselves back up. - Swellow
They came back with their new album. But yeah, as I grew older, I started to like them less. I used to like them more between the age of 12-14. - zxm
They were my favorite band before the triology. But Revolution Radio is Awesome. So they are my favorite band now.

Van Halen is an American hard rock band formed in Pasadena, California, in 1972. From 1974 until 1985, the band consisted of guitarist Eddie Van Halen, vocalist David Lee Roth, drummer Alex Van Halen, and bassist Michael Anthony.
I'm sorry, but I feel the need to disagree with this. I know this is an opinion but since this is a subjective list, I think I can explain why do I not agree with Van Halen being this high on the list. To me, Van Halen is amazing, and is within my top 5 favorite bands for sure, and probably tied with Whitesnake for my favorite hard rock band. Van Halen was the first hard rock band I really got into and liked a lot-and still do. I've never tired of hearing their music despite listening to it quite often. They have a variety of songs depending on what you want to listen to from both David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar's eras. - Element119
Van Halen is the epitome of plastic, West Coast bands. Took shredding to the point of torture, and slaughtered too many classic songs to ever be forgiven.

Donnie Wahlberg, I was convinced would end up as my husband...Ye-es...looking back, I really can't see what all the fuss and heartache was about. I've grown up so much since then.
