Sunday To-Do: Nickelback




6 p.m., Verizon Arena. $55.95-$80.35

All right, let's not mince words here. These guys are probably the most hated band in the world right now. Nickelback is an icon of everything wrong about music, one of the most god-awful peddlers of unwaveringly terrible music ever — maybe the worst rock band of all time. The group's still tacking their brand of cookie-cutter post-grunge all over the airwaves and resting its laurels on a pile of money that only gets bigger and bigger with each album the band pops out like a zit. But Nickelback doesn't care about being universally panned: It's one of the biggest bands in the world, fuelled by hate, groans and bad write-ups like this. And it's only going to get bigger. Expect the post-grungers to pack Verizon Arena and continue hogging chart spots that, in a just world, would be reserved for remarkable, gifted modern rock bands, like, say, Little Rock's own Underclaire. Nickleback's joined by fellow rockers Three Days Grace and Buckcherry.
