Years ago, I was sort of into the band Nickelback. I downloaded two of their albums. My husband used to make fun of me, because he especially hated Nickelback for unclear reasons. "they just seem especially douchy."
Now it's over 10 years later, and I'm not entirely clear how Nickelback evolved into this personification of terrible music.
For example, I was recently watching an episode of modern family, and there was a random joke making fun of Nickelback. And then I saw an attack ad yesterday on Ted Cruz, citing his love of Nickelback.
Seriously, is Nickelback that bad? I can see not thinking they were the greatest band ever, but how did they become this joke about bad music? Surely there's worse music out there...
