Dad Rock Songs That Are Guilty Pleasures

  • So, for those who don't know dad rock is bands like Hinder, Theory of a Deadman, Buckcherry, or Nickelback and similar.


    I think that their songs in general are very formulaic and bad but I have a guilty pleasure for some of those style songs.

    Honestly, I feel that if they debuted in the 90s instead of the 80s, they would be in the same genre and playlists :yesr:

    OOPPOPPPPPP It is, I got them mixed up and I feel terrible now. I pride myself on my rock history

    *** Begin Quote ***

    The original lawsuit filed in 2014 claimed that the guitar introduction to (Led Zeppelin) "Stairway to Heaven" -- yes, the one you're singing in your head -- infringed on the copyright of the instrumental of (Spirit) "Taurus." ... A request was granted and a Panel of 11 judges heard the Appeal in September 2019 ... "The Trial and Appeal process has been a long climb up the Stairway to Heaven," Judge Margaret McKeown wrote in the 73-page decision for the Court.

  • I still don't get the hate for Nickelback.

    I don't think it is hatred as much as annoyance at the blatant lazy song writing. I can understand why the repetitive riffs would get on someone's nerves. It is common with a very large amount of early 2000s popular bands, and I can only listen to them now when in a certain mood after years of my adolescence of them being aggressively overplayed. Like for instance today I am in one of those weird moods :happyr:but normally if they pop in my playlist on a day to day basis when shuffling my library. I skip them.

    Its early internet hate is what I meant. Not death-threat-sending-on-social-media kind of hate. But to your point, yeah, bands like Nickelback were a dime-a-dozen back then but somehow the internet pointed to this particular band to be the one to get the ridicule. Puddle of Mudd was edgy as heck and I don't mean that in pushing the genre forward kind of edge or The Calling or even 3 Doors Down to a degree. I'm no Nickelback fan but it mystifies me why they were singled out among a sea of cookie cutter bands.

    I completely agree, Puddle of Mudd and Staind were miles worse than Nickelback imo.

    Oh my god, I forgot about Staind. Yeah, looking back there were a lot of cringy bands back then but you know what? That was a magical time in my life. The early aughts. I had no money, in between jobs, but man, I had a grand time with my buddies before we went our separate ways. My life was a whole lot simpler back then. I would love to go back in a heartbeat, relive everything, cringe and all lmao

    except they DELIVERED with Rockstar, which is a brilliantly written irony-laced, tongue-in-cheek song.


    rediscovering that song as an adult made me respect Nickelback even if they're mostly lame.

    I must agree on that point.
