The Black Keys caught some extra press when drummer Patrick Carney recently citedNickelback's success as a major factor in the decline of rock 'n' roll. In a new interview, the drummer explains himself and offers an apology almost as insulting as his initial dig.
Chevelle just claimed a massive win over the weekend in their Cage Match against Foo Fighters. This latest victory gives Chevelle some serious Cage Match cred, but will the band be able to achieve victory once again as they face another of mainstream rock's biggest acts?
Nickelback have their fair share of detractors, and let’s face it, they are often the unfair scapegoat for everything that is wrong with modern rock music, but no one can accuse the band of taking themselves too seriously.
What can you do when you've sold more than 20 million records and the drummer for a blogger-friendly indie-rock duo tees off on you during an interview with Rolling Stone? Nickelback had to find the answer to the question recently, when Patrick Carney of the Black Keys said "Rock ‘n’ roll is dying because people became OK with Nickelback being the biggest band in the world" -- and to Nickelback's credit, they were able to find the humor in the situation.
Rock started losing its primacy on the charts in the '80s, and these days, the Top 40 is almost exclusively the domain of pop and hip-hop acts -- a state of affairs that has prompted a steady flow of "is rock dead?" editorials over the last couple of decades. Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney isn't willing to bury the genre just yet, but during a recent interview with Rolling Stone, he singled out Nickelback as a major cause of rock's decline on the charts.
Nickelback and the world of sports just don't seem to be getting along lately. Atlanta Braves relief pitcher Peter Moylan began a Twitter war with the band, who retaliated with some tough words of their own.
