I think Nickelback is a great chocie for tomorrow’s football game. They are a good cross over choice and I think having a Canadian Band might give some American Musicians a chance to have Thanksgiving at home – unlike the unfortunate retail workers who have to miss the holiday to gear up (and rest up) for black Friday. I personally am delighted to hear their new album is expected to open sales at the top of the chart. I wonder if the person who started the petition against this band realizes that the controversy should ensure the album stays at the top of the charts for weeks to come.
Seriously, I feel more sorry for the kid in Detrioit that gets so bent out of shape about a band that couldn’t care less about him! I would rather see him work this hard at an education and maybe doing something about his hometown!
If he wants to talk about Detroit Pride, stop worring about some bunch of musicians and worry about yourself!
