the end product is quite a bit more interesting then the sum of it's parts. maybe that's what i'd have to do to enjoy today's music....

Actually, there are a lot songs like this, though not this bad (this is insanely similar)

try the doobie brothers 'long train running' and zeppelins 'trampled underfoot'

Some bands (and record companies) have been getting away with that for years.

Everytime I see the robins regurgitating worms to feed their young in the early summer I think of the record companies regurgitating catchy phrases, licks, chops (etc.) to their masses.

sick stuff

Is that all? I think it's more like 7 or 8. Still it's worth listening to every time someone posts it.

I love nickelback. Everytime they play Im able to go to a show and hook up with a nice young nubile rock chick who is impressed that I work "in the biz". If anything, nickelback is awesome. You guys need to look at this shit for what it is and move on.

I kinda like the juxtaposion of the two....wish that's what they would have released instead of each individually.

1000 pardons for posting old news. I just saw this, had a laugh about it and wanted to share.

No worries, as others have said it's yet another excuse to throw those jackasses under the bus. I'm still amazed and amused.

Probably because they made him use splash cymabls. If any band deserves to die in a fiery bus crash it is nicklback or nicklecreed or whatever.
I know enough to know that I don't know what I am doing.
