Can this pickle get more fans than Nickelback? Yes it can!

Yesterday the rock band Nickelback was surpassed in Facebook popularity by a pickle. On Feb 3rd a Facebook fan page was started to get a pickle more fans than Nickelback and in a little over two weeks it succeeded. The pickle now has 1,417,335 fans as opposed to Nickelback’s 1,413,834 Facebook fans.

Was this a special pickle? No. It was just a pickle. Actually it was a picture of a pickle. However, it is pretty clear from the comments on the page that most people who joined are not pickle enthusiasts, but are showing that they are not fans of the band. Much of the negative feeling towards the band comes from what is described as a “generic” sound. For many Nickelback has come to be the most common example of a band that plays for the money, not the love of the music. Of course, musical taste is subjective and over 1.4 million people disagree.

The “Can this pickle get more fans than…” idea was not new to the Nickelback, however the anti-Nickelback was far more successful than any other.  An anti-Twilight group is in second with over 500,000 Fans

    "A band that plays for the money, not the love of music" - so, these people only go to free rock concerts? Tell us more about all these rock bands that don't charge for their music, I would love to hear how they are so much better than Nickelback. While the pickle's fans are sucking on preserved cucumber, I'll be at the next Nickelback concert having a fantastic time.

    Congratulations, pickle, you succeeded at being negative and spiteful on the internet.

    When you compare bands of the same genre as Pearl Jam, Kings of Leon, and classic bands as Led Zeppelin, The Beatles,Pink Floyd,Guns N' Roses with Nickelback...the difference is huge...Nickelback contribution in music is really poor and if you disagree with me is ok, but trust me in 20 years no one will remember Nickelback

    I know a lot of people that don't make a dime from playing music, but do so best they love music. I have played close to a hundred shows myself and never made a dime, it is about the love of music. Music is a form of art and what nickelback does is not anywhere close to art.

    A local DJ where I live got a chance to meet the band, and they admitted that they don't even like their music and only think of it as a job. I have zero respect for a band that doesn't even like what they play.
