Chad Kroeger Is Okay with Nickelback Hate. It Actually Makes Them More Successful.

Hate Nickelback? Chad Kroeger has a theory: all that hate is actually raising the band’s profile and is making them more successful. From Metal Hammer:

“All these critics, they’re just tireless. They keep ragging on the band. If they had stopped writing all this stuff about us, there would be no controversy left in the band and we probably would have died out years ago. They don’t know that they’re still responsible for us being around today.”

You know, he has a good point. Nickelback makes tens of millions of dollars a year. Someone must like them.
