Not As Bad As Everyone Says

Breaking Benjamin and Nickelback: All The Right Reasons
The Great Allentown Fair, Allentown PA - August 30, 2005
My friend's little sister won tickets to this show from a radio station contest.  It seems like it's gotten to be trendy to hate Nickelback.  I'm only vaguely familiar with their hits on the radio and they're not one of my favorite groups, but I don't get what all of the negativity is all about.  Seems like it's just people falling in line with social expectations.  They put on a good show.

Breaking Benjamin opened the show.  They're from Wilkes-Barre, so they always draw an enthusiastic crowd in NEPA.  Virtually everyone in attendance sang along with every word to Polyamorous
