    I will never understand the vitriol for Nickelback. Anyone who knows the genre (post-grunge, not grunge) knows there are far worse bands than Nickelback that top the genre charts. I can only presume that most people who hate Nickelback don't know the genre, but know Nickelback because they crossed into Top 40.

    It's not that Nickelback doesn't have bad lyrics. It's that it feels like hearing hundreds of people screaming their heads off about a C-rated romantic comedy, having never seen an F. Until I moved to a part of the country that wasn't familiar with post-grunge, I was used to people either liking Nickelback, or giving it that C-rated review -- "meh" -- or outright saying they weren't their favorite thing. Not exaggerated, fake-murderous rage.

    Alternately -- and this might not be you, so I'm just saying in general -- it seems like people think they're cooler for violently hating Nickelback. Like it's a sweet new trend that will make more people like them.

    I listen to Nickelback from time to time. The comment was directed towards the theory on if Nickelback killed grunge or rock in general. Which I find really silly to begin with. As a personal rule, I have to make fun of the stuff I like every now and then to keep my ego in check. Which is the contrary to how I was brought up. And yes, I did like the video you posted.

    I'm all about bad music.

    Like Diogenes, grunge killed itself - a display of pure power over the will to life

    Bush is post-grunge though. Nickleback is post-alt? (Wikipedia tells me I'm wrong, preserving content for posterity.)

    I'll never fully understand these musical labels as post-grunge, post-rock, and post-punk. Everything has it's influences. If you can't see something as newly made and not totally recycled, you're either a music snob or a hipster.

    It's as if anything post-Kurt Cobain is post-grunge. The Seattle scene was NOT only Kurt.

    Hadn't heard of post-alt before. I had thought post-grunge was anything that took the fuzz and crunch and growl from grunge and made it streamlined, sleek, produced, and crossover radio friendly in an almost popsy kind of way. But I sort of made that up, because Wikipedia's definition wasn't much help.

    Genres are all about making stuff up!

    I didn't say anything about not labeling music, or in your words, "cease the application of language". Anything with the prefix "post-" is a very moldy perception. Music should be approached as new and refreshing.

    Shame on your hipster ways!
