American rock band The Black Keys has offered their apology to Nickelback after calling the band “s**t.” However, reports say the apology was not as convincing as it should have been.
Previous reports have stated that The Black Keys insulted Canadian band Nickelback during an interview with Rolling Stone magazine for its January issue, saying, “Rock and roll is dying because people became OK with Nickelback being the biggest band in the world.”
In an attempt to smooth things outs, The Black Keys made an effort to apologize to Nickelback during an interview with MTV. The band’s drummer, Patrick Carney explains: “I didn’t mean to single them out. It just came out… There’s much worse bands than Nickelback, maybe. That was the worst apology.” When Carney was asked whether he was a music snob, he said “a little bit” before digging at the “Bottoms Up” act one more time. “I don’t like bad music, but look, I’ve got a lot of friends and not one of them has a Nickelback record,” he added. “I’m not a small minority.”
The Black Keys are currently touring the United States alongside Arctic Monkeys.
