In a new conversation with Talks Is Jericho, Ryan Peake, known for the guitarist of the rock band Nickelback, blasted people who hates his band Nickelback.
While he talks on the issue, the 47-year-old guitarist said it was shocking that Nickelback became hated. He made flash comments on that people and criticized them harshly.
“Everybody lives in their own microcosm. It’s always worse for you, it seems, but everybody gets their degree of hate and degree of detractors and vitriol on the internet.
“So you understand it more when you’re in the eye of the hurricane and think of your own hurricane, you think you’re the only one it’s happening to sometimes.
“I didn’t realize we would be so polarizing. That’s the one thing that’s kind of shocking to me. I wasn’t really hyper-aware, in any sense, in the ’70s, when the disco polarization was really going on.
“That was the first time I’d heard of people going crazy about disco hate, people getting mad about some kind of music. I was just like, ‘Just don’t listen to it.’
“You listen to what you like and you with what you like, and I don’t get too wound up about it. So when that happens, I try to get inside their heads as to why people get so wound up about it. There’s a choice. Why do you get wound up about this thing?
“I think people like to commiserate – they do. They love to just talk about what itches their ass, so to speak. ‘Oh, you too.’ ‘Yeah.’”
