What is it about Nickelback that gets everyone all salty, exactly? As far as artists that have been exposed to be real pieces of trash, they haven't actually done anything to earn their reputation as a completely toxic brand. Is it their style of 2000's frat rock that can only be listened to while sexually menacing a freshman with a Bud Light Lime in your hands? That's hardly a convincing condemnation for the amount of online ire they draw. No, it is our estimation that Nickelback is the world's least popular major act for two simple reasons: Their hollow hard rock, though competently performed, is as shallow as a baby pool, and they have a weird looking frontman. Sorry Chad, but you committed the cardinal sin of not being pretty enough to adorn the bedroom walls of preteen girls across middle America. Blame it on the floppy blonde always-moist haircutthat you're most famous for.
