Neal Weiss of Launch.com spoke with Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger who was asked if he has to fight off comparisons to Creed and Pearl Jam. “Not so much,” Kroeger said. “It takes all of about 30 seconds to realize that we don’t sound anything like Creed. Yeah, they’re a rock band, we’re a rock band, so if you’re a jazz fan, yeah, you’re going to lump us together. But if you’re a rock fan, then you can pretty quickly tell the difference, it’s pretty evident. As for Pearl Jam, I don’t think they’re a rock band anymore. I don’t think they even know what they are. They made a couple great albums, though, gotta hand that to them–but I definitely loved Pearl Jam when they were a rock band. That was definitely something I loved about Pearl Jam, or any rock band, for that matter. Because that’s definitely what we are.”
