Quoteworthy: The Black Keys on Nickelback

on January 04, 2012, 9:05am
“Rock & roll is dying because people became OK with Nickelback being the biggest band in the world… So they became OK with the idea that the biggest rock band in the world is always going to be shit – therefore you should never try to be the biggest rock band in the world. Fuck that! Rock & roll is the music I feel the most passionately about, and I don’t like to see it fucking ruined and spoon-fed down our throats in this watered-down, post-grunge crap, horrendous shit. When people start lumping us into that kind of shit, it’s like, ‘Fuck you,’ honestly.”

– The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney discusses the state of rock and roll (via Rolling Stone).

Right now it sounds like Expression Engine is the preferred blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

What does that mean. Are you calling the Black Keys Emo? Because if you are that’s either a joke or you just haven’t listened to them and are being a D-Bag.

Yeah Man. Sweet post Lion. It seems like you have never listened to either Nickelback OR The Keys.
