Not trying to re-open old wounds here, but many of you will remember that last summer, we received our first (of what now will become TWO) DLC packs of Nickelback tracks. In the past, we would occasionally highlight and comment on some of the more… “passionate” tweets from Twitter about Rock Band DLC announcements, and the recurring post got lost in the shuffle with some of the other content here on the site. For those that need a refresher, take a look at how Twitter responded to the first Nickelback pack.
Well, with the recent announcement of next week’s DLC, it is easy to reach the conclusion that these DLC packs are clearly some sort of social experiment from Harmonix. One of the great things about modern technology and social media is that everyone has been given a voice, but unfortunately after reading Facebook for about 15 seconds, this clearly may not have been such a great idea. In fact, I’m pretty sure that whole 2012 apocalypse rumor is probably not such a bad thing anymore.
So, without further ado, come with us as we take a look at some of the more “reasonable, rational, and level-headed” Facebook comment reactions to next week’s impending Nickelback DLC…
[EDITOR'S NOTE: I thought about hiding people's names, but they are all aware of the risks of posting personal information on a public forum such as Facebook. But just because I'm the douchebag that makes fun of them on the site here, doesn't mean you should be a bigger douchebag and "track down" any of these people based on the comments they have made. Enjoy!]
Last chance to bail out! You cannot unsee what you are about to see! OK… I warned you…
There would still be people complaining about how poorly it was charted.
Has anyone told you that you should be a comedian? Because you totally should.
I can only assume that the one “Like” on this came from the band Hautewerk.
I would rather have Nickelback than a one-hit wonder about an ode to Reebok Pumps. (True story, the song started as a commercial jingle.) Also, I liked them much more the first time they came out, when they were called MGMT.
This is why I don’t go to Facebook anymore.
You’re right. The quantity of childish comments in response to an OPTIONAL weekly DLC announcement suggests a much lower age.
Good idea. Just make sure that it’s not their last latest title… #AOGH
Nevermind the fact that they’re one of the world’s most popular acts in the last decade, are heavily requested by the community, and sell extremely well as DLC. Hopefully Harmonix will consult you personally before making DLC decisions in the future, because you obviously provide an insight that is lacking: the cliched Internet follower demographic.
After everything you’ve invested in Rock Band, including ION drums, you would throw it all out because of one week of DLC that you don’t like? If McDonald’s forgets your fries, do you burn the place down? Take it down a notch, sir… you’re not going anywhere.
The comment speaks volumes when you consider it was originally based on a character called “Comic Book Guy.”
You did read the rest of the DLC announcement, right? Specifically the part about the Red Hot Chili Peppers? Remember, kids, reading is fundamental. As for more Journey, don’t stop believing!
There’s nothing “so called” about it; he actually goes by Stevie Wonder. Even if he goes by his birth name, it doesn’t change the fact that he’s the fifth most successful artist of all time, behind The Beatles, Madonna, Elvis Presley, and Elton John. Sorry to burst your bubble, Duncan so called Wragg.
All the time? Uh oh. Sergio, have a seat. Mommy and Daddy have something bad to tell you about Guitar Hero…
Listen to him. He has conducted several first-hand experiments drinking gasoline to arrive at this conclusion.
Close, but not the worst ever.
YES! Maybe if they released packs of songs on a regular basis, say, each week?! That would be a novel idea!
Did you expect it to end any different?
