    Yeah, I agree but am not taking it any further. I mentioned this last year in a thread on AGF and unleashed the gates of hell on myself.

    This thread's about "Bands you should like, but don't", and I guess nobody should like Nickelback :D

    INXS. Whiter than a polar bear in a blizza d during a white paint convention. Even Nile Rogers couldn't give them funk.

    I just thought of another one, that I really do think, every time I hear them, "it seems like I should like these guys, but I just don't."

    I love the song Draw The Line. I can tolerate a few others, but not a fan and I really hate ALL of their biggest hits.

    I'm definitely one of those of a certain age that thought I'd discovered fire when I first heard the Ramones in my teens, but I'm not gonna call on you to be stoned as a blasphemer. I get it. I don't think you *have* to love the Ramones to be a "real punk," I just think it helps! Kidding! (In all honesty, I was and am much more about the Clash.)
    I think you make a good argument and I don't think the Ramones would disagree that they were derivative to a degree; just look at all the cover songs They knew where they were coming from.
    I am curious about who you consider "true punk bands." In the words of Lina Richman, "Discuss."

    I don't get all the nickleback hate.
    I'll go ahead and say it.
    They are a damn good band.
    I wish I was in a band that "sucked" as much as they supposedly do.

    Hate implies caring but still

    I think the complaint against them is more toward their songwriting. They're all derivative of each other, and the lyrics seem IMO to pander toward the drunk bro who wants to talk about poontang but hasn't had any since it had him, but again, IMO.

    They're making money at it so it's a safe bet the band itself isn't bad.

    The Doors - Most overrated trainwreck of all time

    Steely Dan - I hate them almost more than I like any other band. The fact that they named their band after a dildo seems appropriate.
