Nickelback and Spotify Killing Rock?
The Black Keys are one of the more viable acts in the world of alternative rock, yet even they are feeling the burn of the long suffering genre. Drummer Patrick Carney recently gave his prognosis of rock's condition that names Canadian chart-toppers Nickelback as a major part of the problem while speaking to Rolling Stone:
"Rock 'n' roll is dying because people became OK with Nickelback being the biggest band in the world. So they became OK with the idea that the biggest rock band in the world is always going to be s therefore you should never try to be the biggest rock band in the world. F that! Rock 'n' roll is the music I feel the most passionately about, and I don't like to see it fing ruined and spoon-fed down our throats in this watered-down, post-grunge crap, horrendous s. When people start lumping us into that kind of s, it's like, 'F you,' honestly." more on this story
