Music is such a divisive thing… and it shouldn’t be. There are bands and genres of music that I like that some people don’t. Why can’t we just concentrate on what we DO like and not what we hate. Unless it’s Nickelback, canada is sorry for that.
I know it’s an easy target to pick on them…
Happy Monday folks! Tomorrow I have presents for you!
How’d that quote go involving not having enough time to enjoy something and have opinions about it?
I don’t know…
Shesh you really love to hate on Nickel Back, don’t ya Arg?
I do. but remember it’s just my opinion…
No, Reginald. It is a fact of life that Nickelback is a shameful bunch of vaginas.
Incredibly rich vaginas with a large, look-at-all-the-fucks-we-give fanbase.
Seriously, I know several other fans of Nickelback who, until I mentioned it, were unaware that one of their top favorite bands was an internet music whipping boy. Their response? “Well, fuck ’em. I like Nickelback.” Same as the reactions of most who enjoy Linkin Park.
To use the incredibly overused phrase, “Haters gonna vocalize complaints, quite often while simultaneously maintaining a point of view directly opposing that of which they vocalize.”
Nickelback sucks but at least they play instruments, unlike Skrillex. Canadia also gave us Bryan Adams and I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not lol
They also gave us Beiber, Canada QUIT MAKING MUSICIANS!
Hey we gave you RUSH. at least when we get it right WE GET REALLY RIGHT.
Rush is so awesome.
Ya know, I like Rush… BUT! [email protected]. That is all.
Two horrible words, ANNE MURRAY. That is all.
No one likes Nickelback.
I like Nickelback, sometimes. Some of their songs aren’t bad. But some of them… >.<
… surely honoring your nick with that answer… =P
I like Nickelback.
I like Nickelback; I use their empty CD cases to hide my porn DVDs. Because lets face it, no one is going to open a Nickelback CD case.
That came out wrong, let me correct it. I like Nickelback, for their CD cases.
there’s easier ways to do that…. and not have nickelback cds.
Yeah, letting Jethro Tull think they’re more metal than Metallica is just silly. (Not as silly as Skrillex or Nickelback in general, but still silly.)
yeah even jethro tull thought it was weird.
At least we can all agree on that =]
Bottom of the first panel, to the left of center.
Haha, missed that. Thanks.
I can’t unsee it!
Never not see…
What’s with the hidden willy Waldos recently? 😐
Wait, when did people care about the grammies?
Exactly my point…
Heh, you’re right. “Arguing on the internet (thinking of youtube) is like Special Olympics – even if you win, you’re still retarded.”
If you mind, just replace “on the internet” with “about music preference”…
But still I like Skrillex and some Nickelback-songs… seriously!
It’s cool I like Skrillex, and I used to own a nickelback cd. music is a preference.
Haha hilarious as usual!
Also you know all the hidden ‘Nina’s in Hirshfield’s drawings
Well that’s you with dicks 😛
I try! almost forgot todays
Two truths are told in this comic.
and several lies too… they’re hidden…
Like the dicks!
I happen to enjoy nickleback. No, not for ironic reasons, and not for “their CD cases” either.
I simply like the music.
and that’s perfectly fine!
(no it isn’t)
Everything is right with the world, as long as Nickelback still gets made fun of on the internet
indeed, they can play to sold out venues all over as long as someone on the internet chides them….
I love this sir, this summarizes everything i feel towards any award show.
I like Skrillex… I enjoy dubstep… but I also like The Beatles, Scott Joplin, Barenaked Ladies, System of a Down, Greenday, Flight of the Concords, Yasunori Mitsuda, Daft Punk, Mika, Leon Redbone, Caravan Palace, Johnathan Coulton, Smash Mouth, They Might Be Giants, Foster the People, Beethoven… and basically every genre of music ever.
People need to realize that just because you don’t like something, doesn’t mean it’s inherently bad. It just means your tastes are less eclectic. One’s personal preferences do not dictate what’s good and what isn’t. Mostly because “good” and “bad” are completely made up ideas.
Indeed. I hope i conveyed that in the first 2 panels before I made fun of nickelback…
I like them…kinda….
But your opinion on them is always funny somehow
A fine analysis good sir! I like the poop theory!
Wow. Didn’t even know the Grammys where happening, thanks for the heads up, I like skrillex. Don’t mind Nicklbak so much but I must admit they do seem too h ra large number of cringe worthy songs. Music relies very much on personal preference, it’s like food, on person loves Mac n cheese(or what ever) the other doesn’t. It’s fun to watch people on the Internet get a bunch in their panties though.
Jethro Tull will never be more metal than Metalica, kind of like how All Time Low will never be as Punk as The Offspring or how Inches will never compare to the metric system. I’m not trying to be a douche, they’re simple facts.
Love your comic Arg, It is my escape from the Australian Department of Education’s censorship laws. Stay funny.
Do ya like Ska?
Jethro Tull = Rock
Peanut Butter = Condom.
Still the stupidest Grammy ever given out, and they’ve given out some doozies.
and Nickelback’s not that bad as compared to… getting hit in the face with a sack of nickels.
Part of loving music is hating music. It’s two sides of the same passionate coin.
I for one am a massive Jethro Tull fan, they are one of the heaviest hitters in the world of Progressive Rock, and possess a lot more musical talent then most of the 3-chord maximum crap that comes out of most new bands today. Perhaps they shouldn’t have won “Heavy Metal”, but I’m happy to know that after all this time, Prog. Rock is getting some recognition in today’s world.
HEAR HEAR!! I once saw a Youtube video of Nickelback in concert in Chile. The moment the y got on stage…EVERYONE in the audience began to jeer and sneer at them as though they had turned into an angry mob of space age rabid zombies or some such. And then the rocks began to fly…and one hit the lead singer (never bothered to learn his name I dislike them so much) right in the back of the head! I could not help thinking, “That’s what you get for utterly destroying yourselves by following pop-culture, ya bastards.”
