    It's cool, I just found it interesting. I've never seen Nickleback in concert, but saw Papa Roach twice at rock fests here and found them to be pretty badass.
    Give me one more quiet night, before this loud morning gets it right, and does me in.

    Kid Rock is dirty and puts out crappy music. And he's from Detroit so they can't even say "at least he's not from around here."

    I have a CD of theirs. It's okay and that kind of music plays really well in an arena/half time format. You want something energetic and loud.

    Apparently Detroit residents also protested when the Rolling Stones were selected so I think it comes down to only wanting Detroit artists playing at their Thanksgiving half-time show. And their petition only has about 11,000 signatures on it which is nothing in this internet age when anyone can sign a petition with just a few clicks.

    There are more then just Em, Kid, Teddy. We have Mitch Ryder, The Rockets, Aretha, and many others who still make Detroit area their home. I think they just want to show some Detroit pride. Lord knows after the city and county government we could use it.

    You win the thread.

    And yeah, I think the real issue is that Detroit is Motown, home to dozens of artists, it's likely the biggest game of the year (against the Packers, no less), and they pick...Nickelback?

    It's kind of like having Elton John at the Harley 100 year anniversery.

    I suspect you'd be appalled.

    It probably wouldn't bother me as much that all her songs sound like other songs (either her other songs or someone else's) if she wasn't touted as being so original and groundbreaking by her fans (and herself).

    Well, I am a college student. I've heard a lot of her stuff. I even bought the CD with Bad Romance on it; I just didn't realize that there would only be 1 other track worth listening to on it. I'm also quite confused as to why she is touted as being original. All her songs are quite overtly derivative, like that one Ace of Base ripoff or the gay anthem that was a direct Madonna ripoff.

    I don't rag on her like I would Nickelback because I think she has a crapton more talent and she can actually sing. I just find it sad that she won't do what she's capable of. Though the 'Lady Is A Tramp' recording is a definite step in the right direction!

    I also plain just don't listen to the radio anymore unless it's NPR.

    Hating Nickelback has become a National pastime for anyone in Canada who does not own an Ed Hardy shirt. And for our fervent protests of their popularity, we've been awarded the esteemed privilege of listening to them at the 2011 Grey Cup Half-time show.

    There's speculation on Twitter that this is simply a test to see how many people actually turn their televisions off between the second and third quarters of the game.
