    Nickleback has killed Rock. Only ONE song is catchy, but the rest is crap! WARRNING: Do not listen to this "rock album". This album should join in "The Worst Collection of Albums In History" with this album being No. 1

    I used to love and come up with excuses for why I loved Nickelback. Until Dark Horse came along; offensive, lazy, stupid and hypocritical (How do you go from a magnum opus like "Never Again" to garbage like "Something In your Mouth" and "Shakin Hands"?!), Dark Horse is a shoe in for worst Album of the new Millenna.

    This album is a joke. With each song sounding the same as the next, it is clear that Nickelback ran out of ideas long ago (if they ever had any to begin with).

    "Dark Horse" es un album revuelto, dificil de digerir y muy complicado en cuanto a su complejidad, sin alma ni sentido lirico ni de sonido en ninguna de las pistas, puedo decir que es el trabajo mas flojo de Nickelback en toda su larga carrera de vagos trabajos, no se sintio su innecesaria necesidad de innovar tanto como en este album puesto que suena como una serie de lados b desechados"Dark Horse" es un album revuelto, dificil de digerir y muy complicado en cuanto a su complejidad, sin alma ni sentido lirico ni de sonido en ninguna de las pistas, puedo decir que es el trabajo mas flojo de Nickelback en toda su larga carrera de vagos trabajos, no se sintio su innecesaria necesidad de innovar tanto como en este album puesto que suena como una serie de lados b desechados de anteriores malos o mixtos albumes de "Rock?" es el nombre del genero musical que merece este album.

    Why is this band so popular?! All their songs are mediocre and on top of that a good amount of them are stolen. Their songs sound like crap and their just an unoriginal and boring band.

    1 point for If Today Was Your Last Day, because other than that this release is one of the worst albums I've ever had the displeasure of hearing. Nickelback has redeemed themselves (sorta) with Here and Now, but that still doesn't excuse this album from sounding like a dance pop auto-tuned disaster.

    No. This album is a simple no. Nickelback has been a stain on the music scene since their debut, and the fact that some people seem to think they're the best band Canada has to offer....look at these few bands: The Agonist, Evans Blue, Into Eternity, Kataklysm, Protest the Hero, and of course Rush. The TRUE greatest band from Canada. Sure, The Agonist, Into Eternity and Kataklysm are moreNo. This album is a simple no.

The TRUE greatest band from Canada. Sure, The Agonist, Into Eternity and Kataklysm are more towards the death metal/extreme metal side of music, but they're STILL better musically than Nickelback. And you can't compare Nickelback to Rush. Rush trumps them BAR NONE. Nickelback sucks, period. Expand

  1. The band's Beavis- like embrace of rock & roll debauchery is a sort of marvel of low art.
  2. Lange keeps things rolling--and to his credit, Chad Kroeger gratifyingly comes off as more of a regular guy than a rock star.
  3. The hilarious, parodic single 'Rockstar' excepted, Nickelback's music reaffirms every sex-and-stupidity cliche hard rock can offer.
