Nickelback is a Canadian post-grunge 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.
I'm neutral about this band, but I'm pretty sure the majority of us know why Nickelback is so high on the list.
Don't get anyone started. There will be no end.
If you say they are a good band be prepared for a argument that ends with no one winning
It's either "Nickelback sucks" (not true) or "Chad Kroeger is a retard" (which is true)

As much as I hate to admit it, this is true. The people who state their opinion about this band politely get a pass.
But then, you've got the people either shaming fans for liking Linkin Park, or just stating their opinion about the band in a rude form, leading to comment flamewars.
I'm going to try and say this in the most polite way possible: Not all bands and songs are for everyone. If you don't like it, that's okay, but there are better ways to state your opinion rather than bashing others for liking certain genres, bands or artists.

Quite a few times, I've seen Evanescence being negatively compared to other bands (so far I've mostly seen comparisons between Evanescence and Nightwish; they're both extremely talented bands In my opinion), which is just sad. I mean, it doesn't bother me if someone doesn't like them. What bothers me are the negative comparisons. Why can't both bands be considered talented? It doesn't have to be one or the other. Oh well. Haters gonna hate.

To the person who said they didn't invent rock and metal: you're half right and half wrong. Yes, the Beatles didn't invent rock. However, they were a leading figure in rock, investing it in new ways to make it what it is today. But yes, they DID invent metal.

How a argument with this band starts:
Person: I don't like the Beatles, I don't get why they are the greatest artist of all time.
Beatlemaniac: Then are you retarded and know nothing about music because everyone (by everyone he means Beatles fans) that they ARE the greatest of all time and make other bands look like crap.
Person: So you are telling me that this band that makes songs that sound like Cheesy Children songs makes other bands look like crap?
Beatlemaniac: yes, and no the band does not make children songs, they deserve their praise because they invented Rock music and made the first heavy metal song.
Person: You are wrong, they did neither, funny how you are claiming I know nothing about music when you think the Beatles invented rock and metal.
