Nickelback is done talking about the phenomenon of them being hated. In fact, they’re so done that they’re going to shut down an interview moving forward that brings it up.
While at the Toronto International Film Festival for the premiere of Nickelback: Hate to Love, Chad Kroeger touched on this topic with People. The frontman explains that since there’s a documentary exploring the hatred of Nickelback, there’s no reason to talk about it anymore.
“We made a documentary, everybody can watch it. And now from this day forward, if anybody asks that question in the press, it’s like that’s the end of the interview,” said Kroeger. “So if you want to end an interview, that’s all you have to say and that will be it.”
As previously reported, the film is directed by Leigh Brooks and takes a look at the incredibly successful career of Nickelback, despite being so notoriously hated. The trailer can be viewed below.
