Migs Blog: Nickelback For The Win!

February 2, 2017

Massive props to two musical acts for how they responded to an article that was crapping on both of them!

Esquire Magazine put out an article the other day, saying that the Chainsmokers are the Nickelback of EDM (Electronic Dance Music).  They also tweeted about it…

In the article they wrote that Nickelback signaled the end of “post-grunge arena rock”, and The Chainsmokers are the downfall of EDM.

I’m not a card carrying member of either groups fan club…but I am also not going to hate on them.  Hell I dig a lot of their songs…both Nickelback and The Chainsmokers.

The Chainsmokers had an awesome response to this…as they tweeted a mash-up of their song "Paris" and Nickelback's "How You Remind Me".


Not to be outdone…Nickelback saw the tweet and decided to join in on the fun…as their guitarist Ryan Peake posted his own Nickelback/Chainsmokers mash up.

I absolutely LOVE all of this.  I respect that they all had some fun with it.

Speaking of Nickelback…have you heard their new song yet?  It seriously rocks!  I always love their stuff when they put the foot on the gas and give us something heavy…and I am digging this one!
