In the minds of some rock fans, Nickelback can't do anything right. So logic should dictate that some rock lovers were react angrily when the band decided to cover a Metallica song.
Video recently surfaced of Chad Kroeger and company covering Metallica's Sad But Trueand some people had very negative reactions.
Nice try Nickelback but you’re still dogshit," one person wrote in a mangled tweet. "Metallica are eons ahead of you in longevity, lyrically, instrumentally."
Having given a listen to the cover myself, it isn't bad at all. Is this just a case of people reacting negatively to the cover because it was done by Nickelback? Have you heard it?
