I no longer touch the radio, at all. It irritates me too much but last time I tried Bieber was played eight or nine times. Ridiculous. Nickelback not so much, maybe once? Canada hates Nickelback too. Sometimes I wonder how they have fans because everyone I know hates them...
Here in Manitoba Nickelback get played on the radio all the time. I agree that lots of us hate them though.
They were main support on Uproar Fest last year and when their last album came out, they did an arena co-headlining tour with Breaking Benjamin. They are pretty huge over here.
I see. It's always interesting hearing which bands make it in the US and which ones don't, at least to me.
