The Nickelback guy is in awe of Avril Lavigne’s talent (hold laughs)

Avril Lavigne in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico (7/20)

If Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger is impressed this much by Avril Lavigne, how much must he suck? Trick question. The answer is “a lot.” Via Contact Music:

Chad Kroeger says working with fiancee Avril Lavigne is “like taking a bazooka to a knife fight!” The Nickelback singer worked with the ‘What The Hell’ singer on tracks for her fifth album – a relationship that proved so fruitful it has led to them becoming engaged – and was blown away by her vocal ability from the start.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: “It’s easier to write for somebody who has got a vocal range like she’s got. It’s ridiculous how high she can go. She just opens up her throat and it goes higher and higher – and it’s amazing, it’s like taking a bazooka to a knife fight!”

Yeah, working with Avril is like bringing a bazooka to a knife fight, assuming of course that the bazooka shoots poser douchebaggery and calls it music. Good God, even using the phrase “bazooka to a knife fight” makes me cringe with embarrassment. Chad and Avril’s soft rock horseshit are so similarly bland that they really are meant for each other. If we all got together and crowned them “Super Rock Couple of the Century,” can we go ahead and deport them back to Canada or Afghanistan or wherever the hell we won’t hear from them again? Anywhere except America is fine with me.
