I'm sure in 30 years Creed/Nickelback will be compared to some other, ****** radio friendly artist and the diehard Creed/Nickelback fans will say, "Yikes. Very misguided on Creed/Nickelback."

There. You've covered all bases. The young and the old.
That would be a perfect choice, even thought I don't really care for them.

The Eagles best of album is one of the highest selling albums of all-time, so you really sound sorta silly.

Comparing them to Nickelback or Creed is insane.

I'd much rather watch local youth hockey teams play during intermission than this. Wannabee NFL at its finest.

PS. Ceelo sux!

There are a handful of Eagles songs that I like, but I've always thought they were vastly overrated in general. The Nickelback comparison is a bit harsh though…

As for Billy Joel, I completely disagree. I've always really enjoyed his music. I think his music is classic.

For reference I'm a 29 year old guy.

The Spice Girls, Britany Spears and ABBA are some of the largest album selling groups of all time. Using albums sales isn't a great way of measuring 'quality', it simply measures popularity.

Hotel California went 16x platinum in the US, and The Eagles had two other albums go 7x platinum as well.

Creed has had one album go 11x platinum, and two albums go 6x platinum.

Nickelback has one album at 8x platinum and one album at 6x platinum.

So I guess if you're using album sales to justify a band's greatness, they're pretty similar with a slight edge to the Eagles, considering the fact that the other albums have been out for about 30 years less.

Again, using album sales to claim that a band isn't terrible is sorta silly, especially when you consider that Creed and Nickelback have sold like over 50 million albums combined.

But I'm not a fan of these advanced statistics, I prefer to use my ears to form an opinion. And my ears say all three are pretty bad.

I still think the most awkward NHL music performance was when they had that "Tonight is the Night" guy on the ice singing during player intros at the 2011 or 2012 ASG. Cringe worthy.
Holy **** that guy was great. They had those extended periods of player intros and he was just there, dancing, until the time came for him to sing for fifteen seconds again then continue dancing.

I loved it.

On one hand I'd like to see a guy or a group that's more widely associated with hockey than pop culture. On the other hand, I can't help but to remember the Ace Frehley incident at MSG for a home opener a few years back. I was embarrassed for the guy. I'd rather get someone that would put on a good show than a washed up performer or group.

I guess it makes sense to pick out a guy who recently had (ecstacy?) charges against him recently. Good marketing play......oh wait.

Why don't they hire me? I can play a mean air guitar while trying to drunkenly sing "that smell" from Lynyrd Skynard.
