I LOVE NICKELBACK!
I don't get the misconception some Interferencers have that makes them think that we hate all music different from U2. Liking or not liking Nickleback has nothing to do with horizons. It has to do with: either you LIKE something or you DON'T. I am a very highly versed person in music, and I just don't care for Nickleback. Big deal. I can see why Nickleback might appeal to people, though. It just doesn't appeal to me.

U2 is 5% of what I listen to. 95% is made up of trip-hop, electronica, rap, hiphop, and new bands that aren't all over MTV or radio, but rather big in other countries.

I'm a fan of a band called "The Galactic Cowboys" who are great musicians..although the name always made me a little embarrassed to tell people. They rock though, mix the Beatles with Metallica kinda

I would just like to take a minute to say that any reason why I would dislike ANY band has NOTHING to do with how similar they are to U2.

in fact a lot of what I listen to his further away from U2 than nickleback is.

nickleback is boring and is simply watered down metal, made nice and cheesy for radio

this is my opinion, and others can and will have theirs
thats fine
I have a friend who likes Britany Spears...it's fun to give her a hard time but at the end of the day I realize that this is what entertains her, so hey! whatever

My biggest would be Mariah.... mostly the old stuff before she got all skanky. Her voice still amazes me.

80s music kicks ass...lol I have an enormous collection of 80s CD -they may rival my U2 boots!

Guns n Roses... someone else mentioned this, but nothing to be embarrased about.... I LOVE these guys!

Musical soundtracks... like the Sound of Music, Miss Saigon, any of those.

I like "Hide U" best, I think. I also really like "Empty Skies."

I got it because of the free Q cd.

Have you heard Lamb? They're kind of similar, and very good too.

I am not ashamed of any of the music I derive pleasure out of listening to. My tastes are wide and varied...... enough said.

However, I really want to jump on the Nickelback bashwagon... HelloAngel pretty much summed up my feelings regarding this matter in both of her posts. I will say too though, that the kind of rock that Nickelback, Creed, Default, The Calling et al play, just has never been my thing. It's too mainstream, too 'safe'. I can't really describe it. Probably the same reason why I have never really liked Aerosmith. I definately have an appreciation fro rock, but give it to me hard core, or soft and sultry like Coldplay and Travis.

I suppose my guilty pleasure than is the odd tune by Marilyn Manson, Kid Rock, and oh my please help me... even Eminem. It pains me to enjoy some of his tunes. Damn that Marshall Mathers!! Damn him!!!!

Please don't anyone degrade GnR.....they are more than a guilty pleasure, they are feckin' great!!

I love sappy Phil Collins songs..... and Mariah Carey's early days

P.S. Where did Ricky Martin go anyway?
