Hold on to your butts because Nickelback is about to make you swallow whatever joke you had in store with the video for one of their heaviest songs to date, "The Betrayal Act III," from their ninth studio album, Feed The Machine.

Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins recently appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience and defended Chad Kroeger's writing abilities, despite the band's criticism of releasing music often labeled as "uninspired" and "cliché pop rock."

Corgan described Kroeger as an “incredible writer,” explaining that there’s nothing wrong with how Nickelback operates—if the band’s aiming to please, then that’s fine by Corgan.
