Get off your high horse

The customer isnt always right

The customer isn’t always right

When Nickleback front man Chad Kroeger told Playboy that he wouldn’t record unless he was given more money, the music world rejoiced.

Then either the band or the record company caved, and on Nov. 18, Dark Horse was produced and distributed nationwide.

Have pity on the people’s ears, Mr. Radio D.J.

To start with what little good there is in the album, the song “Just to Get High” shows that Kroeger’s vocals can have a bite.

This was the only song on the album that was not dull, though the lyrics were questionable.

Who says that they tried everything to help a friend battling (or succumbing) to addiction and in the same song tells the listener that they told the person that they believed suicide was a better option for them?

Kroeger proves that he might not be the best friend to turn to in case of a drug problem.

“Burn It To The Ground” easily sums up the rest of Nickleback’s legacy and the album with the line, “We’ve got no class, no taste…”

The song “Something in Your Mouth” is another song about hookers that leaves little to the imagination.

“S.E.X.” provides the same. Both songs will have junior high school students pretending they know something about sex until the next Nickleback album is released.

Dark Horse also gives listeners plenty of bad attempts at rock ballads. The absolute worst is the first single from the album, “Gotta be Somebody,” which can only be described as the love song from hell.

For fans of Nickleback, this is exactly what one should expect from a Nickleback album.

As for the rest of the rock community, run away screaming.
