Really, guys? A video recently surfaced of a deployed Charleston AFB crew rocking out to Nickleback for one of their unit’s morale videos from a couple of years back. It’s pretty funny. In aviation, it’s an unwritten rule that in order to be aircrew you have to acknowledge that Nickleback, Daughtry and Creed all suck. The only think that would ever suck worse than those bands would be if all 3 bands got together for a power ballad. Ears would bleed and kittens all over the earth would die.
It’s also a well known secret that if you ever want a jet to stop working properly, all you have to do is play a little Scott Stapp or Chad Kroeger on a Jambox in the crew rest area. (That’s why songs from those bands are banned in Air Force airplanes all across the world.) A slew of faults will instantly appear on the overhead panel of the jet. Even jets hate the screeching noise that passed for mid-2000s butt rock. We’re guessing that this video may actually account for why so many Charleston AFB jets were always broken in the desert.
Rock on warriors…thanks for doing what you do, but stick to your day job!
