Default For Detroit's sake, sign this petition.

http://www.change.org/petitions/nick...ame-in-detroit

I doubt the NFL will hear this, out of touch suits they are, but there's been a petition floating about protesting the fact that Nickelback is booked to play during detroit's thanksgiving game.

Quote:
This petition is important to the fans of the Detroit Lions Why? Our team is representing Detroit on Thanksgiving day, Detroit is rich in musical history! We dont want to be associated with a band that is a sad representation of what Rock and roll should be. Bands like nickelback and other Radio rock bands like them are offensive to real musicians. Sign this petition if you are also offended by this terrible choice of "Entertainment" on Thanksgiving day.

considering the number of Detroit musicians they could dive into, I love it. Bring Bob Seger, Kid Rock, hell Aretha!

Beats Nickelback as far as I am concerned.

I don't want to hear Nickleback even if I paid a dollar for something that cost 95 cents.

I've never been much of a fan of theirs (Nickelback) but obviously someone likes them. Much like Hootie & the Blowfish and the Bee Gee's before them they sold a lot of records and whether people want to admit it or not somebody out there bought them.

I've never understood the need to elevate a band to the top of the world and then collectively all turn on them and act like they're the worst thing to ever happen to music.

It's a halftime show right? Why in the world would anybody care?

I don't think it's the fans that want to do that. I believe it the record labels that force the fans to do that. They wear them out and change their styles etc...

Honestly I'd give that title to some bands who have been around much longer ... and changed their sound for the almighty dollar. I can think of literally dozens.


The most pure mucis tends to be that which is created prior to record lables knowing who the hell they are.

White Stripes reunion show! Actually that would be too epic for a halftime show, it would need to be a full concert.

I watch the SB for the game....all this sideshow stuff is for the corporate comrades and the foo-foo fans. The SB has had all kinds of awful halftime shows in the past. Why should this year be any different? Nothing against NB.

NHL Canadian fans have been successful in rejecting a proposed performance by Nickelback this year.

As American NFL fans, I feel we are compelled to be as steadfast as our northern neighbors, and say no to Nickelback.
