False..and even if that's your opinion I can't see how their level of alleged suck would compare to Nickelbacks. I mean Nickelback is on another level.

Then what's the point of your comparison? Their first few albums were really good and a lot of people bought them. The albums after that were not popular. I thought this was supposed to be about popular bands that sucked but still sold records
I don't even really disagree with this statement, but the mere fact that they had some very good albums should vault them several light years past fucking Nickelback.
How the fuck was Pearl Jam even mentioned in this thread? I know their recent stuff has been sub-par, but Jesus...
pearl jam may have fallen off in popularity, but they still make pretty good music. they are not even remotely close to nickelback.
I think Kiss is probably the Nickelback of the 70s
I disagree pretty strongly with Bon Jovi too, even though I'm not the biggest fan in the world. Such a comparison (particularly combined with Pearl Jam) shows a lack of understanding just how awful Nickelback is.
I was thinking about Kiss, but at least they did something different. It sucked, but at least it was different.
70's = Styx
80's = Bon Jovi
90's = Tool
But all are better bands than Nicklebad.
[EDIT: Fixed my decades allocation...]

There's an argument for DMB being awful but comparisons to Nickelback are ridiculous.
Warren Haynes, Bela Fleck, and Branford Marsalis do not regularly sit in with Nickelback.
Pearl Jam is one of the great "storytelling" bands of all time. They're not going to wow you with exceptionally technical guitar work or anything (although you can find far worse), but you always find yourself invested in the story. And I actually like that they aren't overly concerned with rhyming in a lot of their songs, which adds to their storytelling ability.
I feel like they're the type of band that almost everyone would recognize their 10-15 most popular songs, but not realize it was Pearl Jam.
For the 80s you could also go Warrant, Great White, White Snake, Poison, Extreme.
Lots of choices.
I think they are a way better choice than Foreigner. Foreigner had some incredibly talented guys (Mick Jones, Ian McDonald, Gramm,) churned out some decent (if not smarmy) songs and had a top 10 voice in Lou Gramm. Kiss was different but made schlock songs like Nickelback does....and sold an undeserving amount of records.
Fuck you guys matchbox 20 is awesome. Creed is the easy answer, but I must say when wwe used my sacrifice as its theme and the music dropped with edge spearing triple h off a ladder it was prettyaawesome
I agree with this. KISS, despite crappy music, had a really unique culture around them that still persists today. The people-watching at a KISS concert is unlike anything I've ever seen (I saw them when they toured with Aerosmith a few years ago).
All that will be left of Nickelback in 30 years will be regretful memories of any minutes we happened to spend listening to them.
This is absolutely correct. Should have thought of that. I've never listened to Kiss in my life, but on one of their many farewell tours some buddies and I decided to get cheap tickets and go. They are TERRIBLE. Outside of the theatrics, there is nothing redeeming about them.
ooohh, that's a pretty good one...
Dude it's lunchtime on Monday. Way too early in the week to be drunk
I will fight you. The Goo Goo Dolls are everything Matchbox 20 wanted to be, but couldn't be.
Awesome picks so far of Creed/DMB/Blink182
Bon Jovi is def the pick of the 80's (the hair metal bands should not apply).
LOL @ people hating on Foreigner.
Chicago or Steely Dan for the 70's.
I like this answer a lot.
fwiw, i tried to watch DMB last night. The crowd was full of gorgeous 20-40 year old chicks.
I lasted 4 songs.
This is even worse than matchbox 20 being nominated
