Random Nickelback Facts #6-8

Posted on February 12, 2008

Random Fact – have Nickelback become bad boys? According to Hofstra University, the answer is ‘yes’…Nickelback has been naughty, naughty boys…Read the news story titled “Nickelback: The Banning At Hofstra University”, which can be found at www.SonicMonk.com. Special thanks to Matt at SonicMonk.com for the scoop. Random Fact – onto show reviews of the Canadian tour. This first one comes from Tim W., and it goes like this: “Hello, I just went to both Nickelback shows last week in Victoria BC, and I have to say that they were amazing. Those were Nickelback shows #5 and 6 for me, as they have been my favorite band for a couple of years. The new set looks great, with the pyrotechnics looking like they came straight out of an old Kiss concert.” Yes, there was more in his message, but KISS? Very cool comparison. Thanks for the line Tim. Our second review comes from Ed S. of Salmon Arm, BC. He writes the following: “Hey guys, I just wanted to say that I saw the show in Kelowna on the 20th, and it was fuckin killer!! the pryos were amazing, sound was great, and the energy was out of this world…nickelback was amazing. Lots of bands talk about how they were fans of the music, and how they stood in line, etc., but these guys actually made me believe it. The acoustic encore leading into “remind” was a great bit, and the two new songs, “next contender” and “mistake” were album ready, if you ask me. The best part though??? this was the first time i’ve ever seen someone smash a guitar live. Chad, you are a god. Thanks, nickelback, for the return of the rock.” Thanks for the line Ed. Respect The Rock. Random Fact – so, we’re tinkering around with the idea of putting guitar tablature on our website. Like the idea? We have been checking out a couple sites to see how others do it. Check this out – at www.GuitarTabs.cc, Nickelback’s “How You Remind Me” is the #1 most popular track…in front of “Stairway To Heaven” for crying out loud. It’s true.
