- Despite what you may have heard in the press, Nickelback isn’t making a heavy metal covers album. The rumor just stems from a misunderstanding, says a member of the band.
- Earlier in the year, Mike Kroeger detailed how the Canadian rockers all love metal’s “Big Four” – Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth, and Slayer – in an interview with an Australian journalist.
- But according to the bassist, the story is fake news, noting, “It got regurgitated and switched around and then reformatted it into this clickbait form.”
- “What I said was, ‘I would like to make a Slayer cover record or have a Slayer cover band or make a metal album.’ I didn’t say [it involved] Nickelback,” Kroeger clarifies to the New Hampshire Union Leader.
- Which band could successfully pull off an all-covers record? Who should they do?
