I don't really, or did I ever understand the distain that people hold for Nickelback. They aren't great but they're still 10 fold better than Bieber.
I'm totally there with you on Grohl though. He really is an incredible musician and Foo is slowly starting to move into that megaband status that stands the test of time. They've been around for almost 20 years now! Crazy. And they're still making platinum albums. That's the kind of stuff you don't see all the time....it's Aerosmith, U2 territory.
I was a big Nirvana fan, but the amazing thing is that we would have never known that all that talent was sitting, hidden behind a drum kit unless Kurt did what he did. Dave Grohl was born to be a frontman and it would have been a waste to see him cooped up behind a drum kit for decades.
Someone in my area has a Hummer H2 with "Nickleback" written on the top of the windshield.
It's like they said "I've bought the ultimate douchebag-mobile. There has to be SOME way I can turn the douchebag effect up to 11"....
I thought this thread would be a natural honey trap for that Great War guy but not even a nibble. Which suggests to me he's either dead, AFK, or hospitalized.
Honorable mention: Nick Cave
Radiohead immediately comes to mind. Coldplay, too
No one's mentioned the Smiths or Morrissey yet.
Nine Inch Nails was pretty gloomy.
Staind was definitely gloomy, and ****ty.
Portishead makes me want to slit my wrists.
Elliott Smith tried to slit his wrists, I'm sure, but just decided to stab himself in the chest instead.
