Is Nickelback 'worst band of all time'? Group trolled amid Neil Young's Spotify protest
'Nickelback is threatening to leave their music on Spotify unless Joe Rogan is given all the vaccines' trolled the Internet
While the Internet was busy giving their valuable opinion on the heated controversy of Neil Young pulling his music off from Spotify over Joe Rogan row, a meme post dragged the rock band Nickelback amid the chaos that led to a whole new drama over the weekend. The Canadian rock band was massively trolled where many dubbed it as one of the worst bands of all time.
An individual on Twitter decided to troll the group Nickelback and it succeeded as it quickly reserved one of the top trending spots on Twitter. The viral meme post joked that the band has threatened to release their music on Spotify if Joe Rogan’s podcast is not removed. This came on the lines of legendary folk singer Neil giving an ultimatum to Spotify to pull his music after accusing Rogan’s podcast of spreading misinformation on the Covid vaccine. Spotify agreed and removed Neil’s entire discography from the platform a day later. Neil’s friend and singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell joined him in the protest saying, “I’ve decided to remove all my music from Spotify. Irresponsible people are spreading lies that are costing people their lives.” She added, “I stand in solidarity with Neil Young and the global scientific and medical communities on this issue.”

Is Nickelback the worst band of all time?
Nickelback consists of guitarist and lead vocalist Chad Kroeger, guitarist, keyboardist and backing vocalist Ryan Peake, bassist Mike Kroeger, and drummer Daniel Adair. Despite selling 50 million records globally and being the second biggest-selling foreign act behind The Beatles after the 2000s, Nickelback has time and again been deemed as one of the worst bands of all time. While there is no dearth of their achievements, the Canadian squad has often faced heat for not evolving over the years and releasing the same kind of music repeatedly. The four-member group also got dragged earlier for their sexist lyrics in various songs.
In the song ‘Figured You Out’, Mike Kroeger sings that he, “likes the way you still say please/ While you are looking up at me” whereas, in the song, ‘Something in your Mouth’, the lyrics go, “You're so much cooler/ When you never pull it out/ Cause you look so much cuter/ With something in your mouth.” The band has also struggled with the rockstar image ultimately facing wrath from the social media users over the years.

Reacting to the trending meme, one user joked, “Nickelback is threatening to leave their music on Spotify unless Joe Rogan is given all the vaccines.” Another on similar lines said, “For everyone feeling angry about Spotify at the moment, don’t forget that you’ve let Nickelback survive on there for years. Shame.” The next one too got hyped and trolled the band sarcastically saying, “We will have peaked in society when Nickelback threatens to pull their music unless Joe Rogan is removed from the platform.”
One user added, “Nickelback has threatened to put more music on Spotify if they don't address this issue quickly.” Whereas, another asked, “Wasn't Gorillaz the worst band of all time? I feel ripped off, knowing it's not really them, but Nickelback?” One claimed, “Nickelback is literally the worst band ever”, as another referred to Neil Young removing his music from Spotify, and said “In protest of this move by #Spotify I am going to like every Nickelback song once every hour so they start to show up in everyone’s rotation. Joe Rogan is the worst.”
