Six Types of People Who Actually "Like" Nickelback

The Internet really hates Nickelback. As far as avid tech geeks and music snobs are concerned, they're the worst band ever.

And in line with its total, unabashed disgust for the Canadian bad boys of flavorless ballads, the Internet has now exposed every one of the 13,961,275 who actually "Like" this crap.

So who are these strange, tasteless slugs who call themselves "Nickelback fans"? Their age, sex, and location may vary, but they all share the same awful common denominator.

Upcoming Events

6. Southerners in Their 30s and 40s

It's easy to forget that Nickelback's members are Canadian, because they have so much in common with slightly redneck-y middle-agers from the American South. This group really identifies with the Nickelback message of just kicking back, drinking some beers, listening to '80s rock, and wearing blue denim.

5. Middle Schoolers With Underdeveloped Taste in Music

Then, of course, there are the children who like Nickelback simply because they don't know any better. There's a certain amount of forgiveness that comes with being a child. You can't blame them for having bad taste. They're still figuring it all out. As long as they grow out of it, these kids should be fine.

4. People Who Refuse to Use Proper Capitalization and Spelling

Go to Nickelback's facebook page, and it's riddled with messages like "I luv u guys!" and "U r an angels." Sure, in today's fast-paced society, it's easier to type without using your words. But it's also easier for us to just assume you're uneducated and terrible.
