"...tell me what you want..."

...or, Hey, I lurrrves me some slightly cheesy pop-rock, too...
Like a lot of people, I'm sure, I have a love-hate relationship with Canadian rock band Nickelback. I am not a fan of the ballads like "Savin' Me" and "Far Away," but the faster, harder-rocking songs like "Animals," "Side of a Bullet," and tonight's featured song are pretty good, I think, even if a lot of purists might turn up their noses at it. A well-explored theme, to be sure, but I really liked Nickelback's take on it, and the video made me grin, too. I saw the band referrred to as the Rascal Flatts of modern rock on another music blog I read periodically, but that just ain't fair — 'cause there's no way in hell that boy-band could pull this off. I heard this song on the way to work today, and I just HAD to crank it up!

"Hey, hey, I wanna be a rock star..."
