Back in January, The Black Keys called out Canadian rock band Nickelback.

BURY DA BEEF! Nickelback Responds To The Black Keys Diss 

In a interview with Rolling Stone, The Black Keys’ drummer, Patrick Carney, had this to say about the super popular rock group: 

“Rock & roll is dying because people became OK with Nickelback being the biggest band in the world. So they became OK with the idea that the biggest rock band in the world is always going to be sh*t – therefore you should never try to be the biggest rock band in the world. F*ck that! Rock & roll is the music I feel the most passionately about, and I don’t like to see it f*cking ruined and spoon-fed down our throats in this watered-down, post-grunge crap, horrendous sh*t. When people start lumping us into that kind of shit, it’s like, ‘F*ck you,’ honestly.”

Extremely harsh words.

MUSIC: The Black Keys – “Lonely Boy”

However, that was then and this is now. During a interview with MTV Canada, Patrick Carney tried to douse out the flame he started in January. When the Nickelback incident came up Carney had this to say:

“I didn’t mean to single them out, it just came out. There’s much worse bands than Nickelback …maybe.”

After saying that Carney and his partner, lead singer Dan Auerbach, started busting out in laughter, with Carney saying “that was the worst apology.”

Hey, it’s a start.
