Nickelback – “Rockstar”
Commentary via IM:
Jeff: Good god is that shit awful
Merry Swankster: Isn’t it though. Like everything horrendous you can think of put to song with recognizable cameos.
Jeff: People have some really bad fucking taste. in everything, really
Merry Swankster: I mean i recognize the populist appeal of it, but doesn’t make it good. Its just an enormous piece of processed American cheese, easily digestible for a public with low quality control mechanisms
Jeff: Sooo bad. Like “we loved Seven Mary Three but I wish it were more like mainstream country”
Merry Swankster: Nickelback are the “she reminds me” people right?
Jeff: I have no idea. I haven’t listened to the radio in a decade
Merry Swankster: Is it bad to post it with our commentary? i think its funny
Jeff: well, go ahead, but it’s sort of like shooting fish in a barrel
Merry Swankster: Hey its late friday afternoon!
