Shoot... Nickelback's tendency to recycle hit songs isn't what bothers me. Rather it's that their entire style of music is just so lame. You know the kind where their vocalist tries to sound all 'tough' when singing but their songs are, quite often, pretty wussy. Don't get me wrong, I like plenty of wussy-sounding music; but at least Teenage Fanclub, Lemonheads, Travis, and the Polyphonic Spree don't pretend to be hard asses like Nickelback does.
And, I guess it doesn't surprise me that Def Leppard sucks in person; I saw them perform on TV recently and their singer totally has no voice these days, if he ever did.
