Nickelback

Nickelback guitarist Ryan Peake is shocked at how polarizing his band has become, but he believes that people who do not like the group's music should simply not listen to it.

Peake made the comments during a recent appearance on Talk Is Jericho. He said, "Everybody lives in their own microcosm. It's always worse for you, it seems. But everybody gets their degree of hate and degree of detractors and vitriol on the Internet.

"So, you understand it more when you're in the eye of the hurricane and think of your own hurricane. You think you're the only one it's happening to sometimes."

He went on to explain, "I didn't realize we would be so polarizing. That's the one thing that's kind of shocking to me. I wasn't really hyper aware, in any sense, in the '70s when the disco polarization was really going on.

"That was the first time I'd heard of people crazy about disco hate, people getting mad about some kind of music. I was just, like, 'Just don't listen to it.' You listen to what you like, and I don't get too wound up about it.

"So, when that happens, I try to get inside their heads as to why people get so wound up about it. There's a choice, why do you get wound up about this thing? I think people like to commiserate, they do. They love to just talk about what itches their ass, so to speak. 'Oh, you too.' 'Yeah.'" Listen to the full interview here.
