1. Bands or artists that promote or defend rape culture, violence against women, homophobia, racism, general asshattery, etc.
2. Besides that, there are a few I’ll side-eye you for liking, but that’s certainly not going to stop me from being friends with you and/or associating with a person.
3. Of course, part of that is nobility, but most of it is the fact that my own musical taste consists mostly of oldies, Disney music, and Broadway showtunes.
4. Okay, I’m finally going to suck it up and ask: what exactly has Nickelback done? Are the band members assholes in real life or something? Is their music really THAT much worse than that of any similar band? I feel like I should research them and their music to try and figure it out, but the internet has made me afraid I’ll burst into flame after listening to one too many music videos on YouTube.
