Nickelback Are Sex Repellent, Says Dating Website
But then again, so are Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, and U2
The same people who proclaimed Coldplay fans have the least sex on first dates have returned with a new study that says telling a potential partner you’re really into Nickelback is sexual kryptonite.
Tastebuds.fm, a website that helps singles find others who share their musical taste, asked its users which acts are turnoffs, and the Canadian rockers — whose Here and Now is due November 21 (any press is good press?) — came in first. But not by much! Chad Kroeger and Co. only picked up 13 percent of what was evidently a quite divided vote. Justin Bieber came in a close No. 2, followed by Lady Gaga, Ke$ha, Coldplay, and U2. Then there’s Creed. But after that, Katy Perry, Lil Wayne, and Britney Spears. That’s sort of a large swath of the popular music landscape (and Creed).
Tastbuds.fm went a step further, analyzing which acts appeared on men’s lists as opposed to ladies’ and learned their male users are also not fans of Oasis, Mumford & Sons, Kings of Leon, Eminem, and Kanye West. The women’s rundown included both Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus, Rebecca Black, Insane Clown Posse, and James Blunt.
