Nickelback wants you to put down the Guitar Hero.

Chad Kroeger being a douchebag.
Oh, Nickelback.  You're the biggest Canadian band since Rush.

Ugh... I deserve a facepalm for that.  Rush and Nickelback shouldn't be in the same sentence.

Anyhoo, Nickelback isn't too keen on Guitar Hero and Chad Kroeger wants you to put down the controller and pick up the real thing.  His reason?

It's tough to find other bands out there, because either they're making a record, or they just got done touring. So kids: Start rock bands. Set down the 'Guitar Hero,' learn how to play an actual guitar and start a band, because it's hard to find more bands to put a solid rock-and-roll package together, to get out there. It's getting harder and harder, but I think we've done it.

"
Uh... yeah, we'll get on that, Chad.  And while we're learning how to play real instruments, why don't you stop being tools and start making some good music yourselves?

I don't see why everyone's making such a big deal about this. 

Is it an inane 'gamers' desire to have some claim to fame? "Hey! Some famous guys talking about us!". Or do we actually think this is a valid point? I can see where he's coming from - the 'underground' rock scene, while great, is not exactly visible to the mainstream audiences.
On another note, I actually like Nickelback... I went to see them live a few years ago and it turned out to be a great performance.

I'm going to put down my Wii remote and quit playing Tiger Woods and join the PGA tour. Thanks Chad.

Exactly, haha. Maybe he should put down his REAL guitar and pick up guitar hero instead =P It'd make the world a better place, haha.

Well thank you Chad for those wise words.

Now I'll get back to playing my videogame called Guitar Hero.... yes it's a videogame. I honestly have no interest in learning a new instrument.

I also agree, shut up and finally make some good music for once.

I'd like him to put down his guitar and play Guitar Hero... maybe he can put his "skill" to use there.
