Vice Finds People Who are Proud to Admit They are Fans of Nickelback

I’ve never understood the disproportionate amount of hate directed at Nickelback. They’re a very competent hard-rockin’ band that has sold more than 50 million records. That means despite all their critics, they must have some fans, right? Vice set out to find these people and found them–at a Nickelback concert.

  • I am not apologetic at all that i am a big fan of Nickelback!!!! I have never understood the people who trash them all the time. I find it quite amusing that soooo many people say they hate Nickelback, yet they have hit after hit after hit. Somebody obviously likes them and I think there are a bunch of closet Nickelback lovers out there that are afraid to come out. Stand tall, Nickelback ROCKS!!!!

    • Totally agree – somehow it became less “cool” to admit to liking the band when 8-80 year olds were also liking the band – it’s not cool to like a band your grandma likes too kinda philosophy…
