    If Nickelback plays the same song 3 times in a row would anyone notice?

    No, because they really only have that 1 song.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Nickelback always reminds me of movie theaters, when you come in early and they are playing bad music during the trivia.

    As long as he doesn't shoot anyone with a crossbow during the show, well, unless he shoots Nickelback.

    Detroit really punches above their weight with big name music acts.

    Alice Cooper and Kid Rock have a similar profile -- everyone knows who they are but nobody actually listens to them.

    Alice still gets a ton of airplay on classic rock stations here in the Midwest.

    If people from Detroit had their say, it would probably be Eminem or Kid Rock.

    Eminem's rap history is pretty well documented, although Kid Rock kinda made headlines with his Super Bowl appearance during Hootergate when he wore the American Flag draped as a poncho.
