Because We Needed Another Reason to Dislike Nickleback

It’s been a celebrity filled year up here in Average-Land. First we had the Trailer Park Boys in January, then Tori and Dean, later that same week we had the choreographer from Dancing With the Stars – Jean Luc Godard and yesterday we had two of the members of Nickleback.


Do you people in the States get subjected to these guys? If so, I’m very sorry – they actually stemmed from Alberta (in a small town butt-f*ck nowhere, but still Alberta) so I do apologize and I promise not all bands here are that repetitive or shitty.

Sure they had a good start, a few catchy tunes, but then their music started going downhill faster then my last relationship (and that’s fast). There’s a radio station in Calgary that actually has a No Nickleback Guarantee, and they stand by it proudly.

Last night after they played in Calgary, two of the guys came in and were sitting at the bar. I don’t know if they expected special treatment (they did) but we were super busy with the post concert and post music society concert rush. I got about 8 large tables in all at once and my bartender probably got 5 and he had to make all the drinks.

The two Nickleback guys were with another guy who has been into our restaurant before. He’s the one who told us who these guys were. After Bartender served them each a few drinks it was dying down and we were thinking about doing last call. Most of my tables were finishing up. Nickleback dudes asked Bartender for a couple more drinks and because they were friendly enough, Bartender gave them each a shot as well.

So last call is over, these guys have three double rye Pepsi’s each in front of them and they go outside for a smoke. We see them go into the hotel lobby across the street and head into the lobby bar. Bartender heads over there to see what they’re doing and tells them they’ve still have to come back and pay their tab. They promise they’ll be right back over.

We leave their drinks at the bar and finish everything else up. By now it’s been over half an hour and Bartender sees them outside smoking by the hotel (none of these guys was the lead singer btw – apparently he’s not a douche says our friend who has partied with him before). Bartender heads over to the tallest one and says:

BT: “Listen man I need to do my cashout and close up here”
NB: “Oh ya for sure man, you need to get shit done. How much is the tab?”
BT: “it’s at $115 bucks”
NB (as he pulls out a wad of cash): “Here you go man, thanks a lot” (hands BT $120)
BT: “Really?”
NB: “Ya man it’s all yours. Great job man”
BT: “Really?! 5 bucks, really?” he shakes his head and comes back to the restaurant. Right before he gets inside he says to the guy “I hooked you guys up and you’re giving me five dollars? Really?”

Basically Bartender had to serve them past last call, gave them free shots, had to chase them down twice, and got a super shitty tip when they finally paid.

So we drank their untouched rye’s.

  1. WOW….. thats pathetic! i cant stand their annoying repetitive music anyways!

  2. I would’ve had some choice words for these douchebags.

  3. I knew it! I knew they were douchebags!I have always had this thing against Nickelback. Now I know why. Not cool. And their music STINKS!

  4. What cheap assholes! I hate that! I mean as a pseudo celeb that people recognize, wouldn’t you want to NOT be recognized, remembered, or known for being a cheapskate??LOSERS!

  5. Cheapskate a*holes with cheapskate music as well. Wow. At least they can be really decent human being having to make those kind of music but they arent.

  6. All the reason to hate them more.

  7. I now have one more reason to loathe them…

  8. Not surprising. I totally believe that line that Rene Russo says in “Get Shorty” about how “celebrities don’t know how much anything costs and they never pick up the bill.” They’re so used to other people wiping their asses, they’re oblivious to the real world stuff everyone else knows. Not that that makes it right – they choose to forget that stuff.

  9. Ugh. They poop money. They could have at least given him about $10. Well, those $10 are part of the sum I won’t be paying for their album, that’s for sure.

  10. what utter pricks!

  11. I cant stand nickleback, now even more

  12. Love having more reasons to hate Nickelback. Pack of women and bartender haters…

  13. CANADIANS!!!!!!!That’s what we call bad tippers in the US.

  14. Sadly, as a bartender I both heard and witnessed many of these stories about celebrities. If you don’t want to tip, that’s one thing, but accepting special treatment and THEN stiffing?Special place in hell. That’s all I’m sayin.

  15. I think the worst part is that the dude was so delusional that he thought that he was rewarding BT. That’s prob why no one digs their music, they’re so out of touch, they’re unrelatable.

  16. WOW – I hate their music even more now.

    (hi, btw, new reader 🙂 )

  17. So not only does their music suck, but they suck as people, too. Great. How do they have fans??

  18. So I’ve never met an actual “fan” of Nickelback until March of this year. It was quite an experience listening to someone try to justify why they weren’t THE shittiest band on the planet. Needless to say, I’m not a fan and I would expect nothing less from douche bags like them. However I refuse to believe the lead singer isn’t just as douchey.I mean it is his voice that I hate so much. He can’t be cool.

    You’ve just rejuvenated the hate I have for this band. Thank you,I cannot wait to pull up next to someone who has Nickelback blaring on their radio. Oh it’s like Christmas!

  19. I didn’t think it was possible to like Nickelback any less than I already do. Thanks for proving me wrong!
