Scorpions Guitarist Compares Nickelback To AC/DC and Iron Maiden

(Classic Rock) For many rock fans, Nickelback is the band they love to hate, but Scorpions guitarist Matthias Jabs, for one, believes the Canadian outfit are comparable to AC/DC and Iron Maiden.

Chad Kroeger's squad have a lively relationship with their haters. In 2011 over 55,000 objected to the band's appearance at a Detroit NFL game. A recent Twitter war saw them replying to angry messages with sarcastic responses. There's even a website called Nickelback Haters Unite.

But Jabs tells The Big DC: "For me, they are one of the really great rock bands that came out after the older generation, like the Scorpions, AC/DC, Iron Maiden all those.

"I really like what they're doing. They're powerful, they have great songs, and they're really my favourite band from today." more on this story
