Updated 31 Jul 2019 326.0k views11 items

Music fans may not agree on much, but everyone seems to recognize that Nickelback is the worst band in the world. Why is Nickelback hated? There isn't any one definitive answer to this question.

The public's fluctuating taste couples with the band's seemingly limited musical catalog to partially explain why music fans hate Nickelback. These fans have not been shy about showing their hatred, pushing back against a band that was, for a time, incredibly successful.

Since Nickelback formed in 1995, they've sold more than 50 million albums. Their earlier songs have been chart-topping hits, making them one of the most successful musical acts in Canadian history, and they've played to million-person crowds all around the world. However, this wave of success soon started to turn on them, and a history of Nickelback hate began to overtake any public love and appreciation they may have once experienced.
