The Lyrics

If you can get past the obvious Weird Al reference in the title, then enjoy the parody. Otherwise, good luck with getting past the Weird Al reference and enjoy the parody. Oh, and most of this parody won't make much sense unless you're already aware of the video that goes along with the original song.
How the hell'd this song get so slack?
n' the rhyming is so strange
I know our name's Nickelback
But please stop asking for change
Some girl just loses her wit
As we watch her long face
Drives off in a sad, angry fit
And it rhymes just in case

We'll sell strong
Won't go wrong with a guy who no one knows is...

This way
Is how
I'm gonna write a good song but not right now
MTV's gonna save the day
(And I bet no one will notice)

This way
Is how
I'm gonna write a good song but not right now
MTV's gonna save the day

Oh I know since I don't care anyway
then I should stop delaying
I'll get all my lines from e-bay
and without over-paying
Now we need a great music vid
From the director of 'Sixth Sense'
Let's go cast that scary ghost kid
His face will be our best offense

We'll sell strong
Won't go wrong with a guy who no one knows is...

This way
Is how
I'm gonna write a good song but not right now
MTV's gonna save the day
(And I bet no one will notice)

This way

I'm gonna write a good song but not right now
MTV's gonna save the day
(And I bet no one will notice)

There isn't any other way
(And I bet no one will notice)

MTV's gonna save the day
Someday...somehow... I will do something about this band.

Thanks velvet. I wouldn't say I hate Nickelback. It's more like I have no respect for them whatsoever. And I didn't realize how bad their rhyme scheme was until I started making this parody.

Good job! I liked it a lot! I've seen the music video for Nickelback's Someday let me just say it's not smashing. They need more videos like the ones Primus does they're awesome!
2nz - January 06, 2004 - Report this comment
I've never had the experience of a Primus video, but I'll check it out. And I agree with you that there are many better videos out there, but for what it was, the Nickelback video did what it was trying to do very well. And thank you Sarah

This song (the original, "Someday" by Nickelback) is one of those you can start singing along with the first time you hear it, which is why my kids like it. I prefer something a little more thought provoking. It's so lazy to force rhymes, and to fake intensity. It's not as bad as hearing Liz Phair's synthesized voice crooning "Who the Hell are you?", but it's close. Kurt Cobain is twirling in his grave. Or maybe your title is a dig at him, too?

Oh no! He doesn't like Nickelback! God forbid someone has different tastes than you! You're the sad one...you misspelled the word "have."

I know you are trying to make him gain exposure, but what your doing isn't funny! He's a good song write, and brings meaning, and reason. And for one i love his songs there great, and a lot of my friends do to, but you shouldn't be giving exposure of making fun of him, thats disrespectful. If you want to gain exposure, you should do it by putting in free music videos and a lot if things people can see on this website, which would gain exposure to you too, but stuff like that, so when people do come on here they can see Nickelback, and the people who do come can tell there friends and it will get a lot of exposure, so do that instead of hurting people's feelings. Overall your website is awesome! Good luck!

I am so sick and tired of you people saying "Nickelback sucks." 1. It's an opinion, people may not like what you like. 2. If you don't like the song, why did you search for a paradoy?

Tell Nickelback to stop sucking and we'll stop saying they do.

Go back to listening to your damn Nelly and 50 cent garbage assclowns. If you don't like "Leader of men", which sounds nothing like any of their other songs, then you're just too much of a bigot to realize that they aren't gay cashins like everyone makes them out to be. Whoopee doo, they made one song that sounds remotely similar. Look at their older albums, and you'll notice the lack of similarities you idiots. Honestly.
Bob - October 31, 2005 - Report this comment
"The State" does not excuse the albums that have come after it. At all. Of course they're "gay cashins," you moron, they're the epitome of money-grubbing assholes, that's why they get played on every radio station in North America. Get a clue.

just to put it clear out there, the people who hate nickelback that much some are the ones that are partly jealous when your so pathetic that you type pointless parodies. thats crazy to me, just plain crazy. Second of all we all have different taste so if some of us like or infact love nickelback and their lyrics and their talent then stop hating, because guess what they have more fans then the ones that are not. They are very talented and the lead singer works so wonderful at harmony and he's the best lead singer i know. Hop off cause they are getting more fame than ever. Yeah so what two songs might sound the same, every group has that moment when a verse might have the same beat, but the songs are not exactly the same listen carefully when you listen to the singing in the songs and the choruses it's plain to see that they are different. You prefere to listen to something while we choose to listen to them. They worked pretty hard and they write their own songs. i think thats pretty original and talented. the lead singer can even modefy his voice to fit the song. that shows even more talent. Why don't you read a dictionary to understand the meaning of each song before you critic about Nickelback.

I caught this by the above comment. Gotta love 12 year old fans... anyway, good stuff, Glen. I have to disagree about the rhyme scheme being odd - it's pretty much ABAB. "Suitcase/too late" are somewhat reasonable, but the "novel/horror" couplet... okay it's doesn't work. Loved the eBay line.
