Tell me this mash-up of two abjectly terrible songs doesn't produce something strangely beautiful…

I woudn't say they were abjectly terrible... I kind of like How You Remind Me. What that mish-mash does actually show in a rather effective manner is exactly how carefully constructed popular music really is. Especially Nickelback, I guess.

Weird. Will we know when computers are generating it all? Would we know now?

Aww… since it's a low-culture-per-Nickelback confessional now, I kind of liked their pre-HYRM singles (Leader of Men and Old Enough) at the time.

Okay, I can still live with Leader of Men. (Though, in the pantheon of anti-political Can-rock, it'd still have to come well, well after Spirit of the West's Tell Me What I Think…)

Or reviewing it for hit potential, at least…

God damn you, man! I have that song (You Remind Me) running through my head now! Argh!
