Today is the day that RockBand fans have been waiting for!  Nickelback’s library is finally available to Xbox, Wii and PS3!  That is exciting for someone right….right?!

Now I know it isn’t fair to make fun of Nickelback,  nor is it funny.  It is like kicking someone when they are already down and kicking themselves.

But none the less, you can now play along with the extremely popular and critic-defying band.  Who knows, you might actually make them better!  I kid because I love, I kid because I love.

“Nickelback Pack 01” is available today on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for $9.99. Individual tracks are $1.99 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and $2.00 on Wii.

But I do have to say, I do really love the band’s new song, This Afternoon.  No, I’m serious.  It is exactly the kinda song Nickelback should be singing.  It is about drinking and hanging out with your friends.  There isn’t even anything close to a lyric about crying on a love poem or living in a small town. I’ll never admit this in public, but I’ve even been known to turn the song up every once and a while.

EMI is super lame and won’t me post it on the blog, but have a listen on Youtube.  You’ll see, I’m not crazy.

(P.S. Dear EMI, welcome to 2010, let blogs post your music videos.  Youtube counts them as views.  sigh.)
