    Detroit wants to disinvite Nickelback from its Thanksgiving game

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shu...rn=nfl-wp11074

    I can't say that I'm much of a fan of them myself but I think it's interesting how much hate this band gets.

    I think this might be more about wanting a Detroit act to play.

    As for Nickelback, they're sucky but harmless.

    Would another band that wasn't from Detroit get the same reaction?

    I don't know. But I do think that if I was from Detroit (oh wait, I am... but that was a LONG time ago....) and my team was doing well for the first time in almost forever I'd probably want a local act to represent us when we were finally on the national stage. Especially considering how many great music acts are from Michigan.

    What's with picking Nickelback anyway, Collective Soul not available?

    I'm sure the NFL has their fine hand in the selection. No one controversial.
    The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.

    Re: Detroit wants to disinvite Nickelback from its Thanksgiving game

    I think this is hilarious news. I've disliked them for years. It boggles my mind that anyone would ever want to listen to them. As soon as I hear them on the radio, my hand, or shall I say gag reflex, instantly goes to change the channel.

    I'm kind of surprised Kid Rock wasn't picked. Or, even Eminem. Even though M probably wouldn't sit well with a lot of fans.

    The NFL has generally been using older artists with Baby Boomer appeal such as Paul McCartney and the Stones. Given that practice I don't understand why Bob Seger was not chosen.
    "Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."

    Could always have one of Jack White's other projects perform. The Raconteurs are a great live act.

    Ah, Nickelback. The very definition of boring, generic arena rock.

    I'd say this is less about wanting Detroit to be represented than it is about not wanting to be embarrassed when for the first time in forever people are going to be actively watching their game. I know I'd prefer just about anyone over Nickelback if I was in their shoes.

    Or was liking nickelback part of Tiger's wholesome all American boy charade?
