Nickelback Banned In the UK?
At this point in time it's safe to say that Nickelback is one of the worst bands of all time. Sure, they still have fans. I like to refer to as the lowest common denominator. People who refuse to search out new music and take any old crap the radio spew out at them. I mean if you really loved rock music why would you settle for a bland, cookie cutter band like Nickelback. There's nothing about their music that's memorable. They're about as edgy as a wooden spoon. It's all cock rock bullshit. Ok, rant off. Let's get to the story.
London resident Craig Mandell is like most music fans and hates him some Nickelback. Using the resources of crowd funding Mandell has taken it upon himself to raise money to try and ban Nickelback from ever playing England again. He's looking to raise $1,000 dollars at which point he'll email Nickelback management with the donations and a list of people who donated to show them how much they're hated in England. Mandell explains,
"Following the recent crowd funding of a Foo Fighters gig that did not exist, the Foo Fighters agreed to play the gig. We are attempting to ensure that Canadian 'rockers' Nickelback do not come to London to play a gig. With your help, we can ensure that the band do not schedule any gigs here, do not attempt to come here nor even phone here. Just imagine, thousands, perhaps tens of thousands of music lovers all not witnessing an exclusive concert by Nickelback in London. It will be glorious. Legendary. Dare we say, game changing?
This campaign is not about personal profit. All proceeds will go to charity or perhaps therapy for those who've been affected by the band."
Classic!! Mandell told the reporter during his spoof Q&A session that people need to donate now and that time is running out. The band could be planning a gig as we speak.
