Have I told you how much I love you yet? They're the perfect example of a band surviving on nothing but good marketing. They have no critical acclaim, have produced nothing original, have influenced no one, and still manage to sell out big venues. They're the kind of band Creed laughs at.

Also is Jeff Healey eligible for this?

I wouldn't say they influenced no one. We do have them to thank for Theory of a Dead Man, who we just could not live without.

Yes, Nickelback are influential on a number of even more deluded strain of "post-grunge", each more generic and awful than the next (ie The Default, Shinedown, Three Days Grace, most of those post-grunge bands whose names are an entire sentence).

They have sales going for them, and they release at lest seven singles off of each of there albums, all of which are Top 40 hits more or less, but they have zero critical acclaim, and there's even a backlash against them from rock fans and rock radio. There has to be an active rock-format station out there somewhere promotes their playlist as "Nickelback-free" by now.

Not to mention the petition drive in Detroit to get the NFL to replace them at the Lions game this week with, well, pretty much anyone else. That was cool. :thumb:

However, the fact that they suck does not mean they don't belong on the list.

It certainly does when you're ranking them above Steppenwolf, Barenaked Ladies, New Pornographers, Voivod, Robbie Robertson, Harmonium, BTO, Feist, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Pat Travers, Alexisonfire, Weakerthans, and Men Without Hats.

Every single other artist on this list is more qualified than them to be on here.

No, that's actually ridiculous.

It's not a ranking of the Canadian bands we like best. Or even an attempt to rank the Canadian bands that are the best, if that could even be determined. It's a ranking of the most important Canadian bands in terms of popularity, influence, and acclaim. To say that by those criteria Nickelback ranks below Men Without Hats is patently absurd.

Nickelback excels in ONE category, and it's popularity. They have virtually negative points on critical acclaim and no influence.

Men Without Hats have critical acclaim, decent amounts of popularity, and decent amounts of influence on New Wave. They touch upon two categories that Nickelback doesn't.

I don't agree that Nickelback has no influence; Piper has already named several bands they influenced.

But even if you were right, it doesn't matter than Nickelback's points all come from one category. They have a HUGE lead in that category over almost all of the artists you mentioned. Men Without Hats may have a little acclaim and a little influence, but it's not anywhere near enough to overcome the massive advantage Nickelback has in popularity.

I don't like it anymore than you do, but it's true.
