My favorite band of the 2010s. These guys are hardly famous, yet they are infinitely times better than every mainstream artist popular now combined. If music was like it was in the 70s, these guys would be famous, while Justin Bieber, Drake and the rest of them wouldn't. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

I don't think Santa likes thieves. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345
I'll have you two know that Led Zeppelin just took existing songs and put their own spin on them. Not exactly plagiarism, unlike Ed Sheeran who plagiarized so many songs. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

Songs like Stairway to Heaven, Kashmir and No Quarter are brilliant songs from Led Zeppelin. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

The only good pop punk band, Green Day started off as a new Ramones, then started writing amazing songs like 21 Guns. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva
Sellouts on Santa’s nice list
Hell no, Green Day ain't no sellouts. Maroon 5 is the clear definition of sellout. They swapped their genre from rock to pop in 2010 with their stupid Hands All Over album, and that annoying overplayed song Moves Like Jagger. And then they got worse over time, becoming more about Adam Levine than the other members. That's why I like to call modern Maroon 5 The Adam Levine Experience. You could also say Taylor Swift is a sellout, but she was never good. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva
