CHAD KROEGER Declares He Will No Longer Respond To Questions About NICKELBACK Hate

Chad Kroeger Interview

NICKELBACK frontman Chad Kroeger has recently announced that he will no longer discuss the hate directed towards the band. His decision comes as the band’s official documentary, “Hate to Love: Nickelback,” debuts at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The documentary explores the band’s rise to fame and the consequent backlash they faced. Kroeger has expressed that he hopes this documentary will serve as the final word on the subject of hate for NICKELBACK.

In an interview with People magazine at the 2023 Toronto International Film Festival, where “Hate To Love: Nickelback” made its debut, Kroeger confessed his initial reluctance to tackle the animosity aimed at NICKELBACK in the documentary. However, his bandmate Ryan Peake persuaded him of the importance of addressing the issue.

“We get to take the narrative,” Peake said. “We get to actually tell our version. It’s like you turn the cheek for as much as you can, and then at some point it’s, like, ‘Here’s our take on it.'”

When People inquired about his reluctance to address the negativity, Chad seized the reporter’s recorder, holding it as though he was the one orchestrating the interview.

“If somebody stuck that thing in your face every single day and said, ‘The whole world hates you like this, the whole world hates you. What do you have to say about that? Every single day. Every day. Would there be reluctance on your behalf to talk about it? Would you get pissed off? Would you be over it after a while?”

“I’m over it,” he continued. “We made a documentary. Everybody can watch it. And now from this day forward, if anybody asks that question in the press, it’s like that’s the end of the interview. So if you want to end an interview, that’s all you have to say and that will be it.”
