Never knew they were Canadian. No I know why I hate them. Just kidding. I would have had an easier time on that one if it left out the nationality.

They sound like every other monotone, unbathed, ironically facialhaired, angst-ridden, gotta growl my lyrics to look cool , heroin band from the 90s. I passionately hate them all equally. They brought about the nail in the coffin to rock music.

Supposedly they're not being bashed on for making bad music but for what they respresent: The idea that a label can make a band that is not the greatest musically widely known through clever PR etc. I personally like a few of their songs and god forbid I've even been to a concert.

Don't you know? It is hip to hate stuff.. And is even more hip to say how much you hate yourself if you got an answer on certain subjects right (i.e bieber/twilight), how you deliberately didn't type them, or how glad/proud you are that you don't know the answer

@carry yea that's why when I grew everybody "hated" linkin park, you couldnt say you liked it or you would get bullied. Or at the very least laughed at...

i think the nickelback thingy started shortly after that when was out of high school allready (the band was allready around, but the negative attitude about it wasnt untill much later, I guess it took a while to blow over from america/canada, where-ever this hate originated

I don't get the word fame after some clues. Maybe I am missing something and looking at the sentences all wrong and expecting a different syntax. Not hard to misread sentences when they are sort of in shorthand.

I actually don't get how the word is used (can't think of a synonym that would make the sentence flow)(actually putting the word song there makes atleast some sort of working sentence,,) ánd the make up of the sentence.. so the wordtype

am i the only one?

"of ___ fame" is just another way of saying "famous for". eg. Steven Spielberg of Jurassic Park fame.
