When it comes to music, one thing that’s pretty stale is the habit of making fun of Nickelback. In fact, I only cite Possible Oscar’s “How We Recycle” as an acceptable parody, but even that is old – originally from 2007. Nickelback has a new album out, and FEED THE MACHINE is doing pretty well in bringing the rock to the mainstream masses. With their new video, “The Betrayal Act III,” they show off what they do so well – mixing the heavy and the poppy, essentially setting the bar for radio rock, but with some real punch. It’s heavy but hooky at the same time. Check it out… it’s completely acceptable to do so.
