…but first, let’s clear this up. The New York Times reported last year that in order to “deflect all curiosity” about the as yet unannounced Rock Band Network, it was given the codename Rock Band: Nickelback. As funny as that is, Matthew Nordhaus (AKA The Overnord of the RBN) commented that working on the Rock Band Network from day one, he NEVER heard that name (starting about 8:00 in on the video below).
In fact, despite Nickelback’s vocal displeasure over Guitar Hero (and rhythm gaming in general), an olive branch was extended to Nickelback from Harmonix, so despite possible personal feelings to the contrary, to the best of my knowledge, Harmonix has never publicly trashed Nickelback.
So with that out of the way… it’s Twitter time!
Did someone say Downfall?!
Yup, just like Old Yeller, Rock Band is rabid. You know what needs to be done, Travis.
Let’s get serious, here. Even if you could punch DLC in the groin, it could still probably beat the crap out of a kid with a Link avatar on Twitter.
For someone that hates Nickelback, he sure knows the lyrics well enough to make a parody. Oh, “crap” and “back” is a pretty week rhyme. Don’t quit your day job there, Weird Al.
