The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney Disses Nickelback

When finger-pointing ensues for who exactly killed rock & roll, The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney has a clear figurehead in mind. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Carney attacks Nickelback and their influence on people’s indifference towards the mainstream:

“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.”

But Carney turns around from this attack-de-force and throws some criticism on himself:

“I suck at the drums, so it’s terrifying… Just trying to keep it together. I see a lot of comments on Twitter and stuff about how ugly I am, how bad I am at the drums, how awkward I look, and I’m like, yeah, I agree with most of those things.”

      LMAO! This guy and his band is a joke! Last time they had a reason to promote an album, he dissed Gaga. Now this album, he disses Nickelback to get some press. How about just recording something that somebody wants to hear you puke!
