Culture Break: Nickelback: When We Stand Together

Yes, I like Nickelback. Deal with it.

(As I remarked to the music editor at the weekly we both worked at: You may not like what they do, but they do it very well.)

(I was going to post a live version, but the sound is not great -- it loses that particular raw, desperate quality in Kroeger's voice that is so important to their sound.)
