meccamuzakmondaysWelcome to another Monday full of music and heartbreak, as The Nest’s little equine jukebox plays another somebody’s done somebody wrong song in honor of Valentine’s Day on this week’s Mecca Muzak Monday.

You may recognize the couple above as two of the biggest musical stars of the previous decade… Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger and edgy pop princess Avril Lavigne.  It was perhaps fate that the two biggest musical acts to come out of Canada in the 2000’s would end up getting married, and these two lovebirds officially tied the knot on July 1, 2012…

Isn't their adopted son just a cutie?

The fifth hour of the 2014 Winter CD featured a collaboration by the newlyweds that took months of replay to grow on me… and it still isn’t a song I’d particularly go out of my way to listen to.  But it’s perfect for my theme of anti-Valentines songs this month.  Here’s the couple’s 2013 song, “Let Me Go”…

According to that trusted source, Wikipedia, the song wasn’t originally written with the odd ending where Avril suddenly seems to change her mind and want the lover she’s trying to get out of her mind back.  Apparently Avril wanted her happy ending after all, and so re-wrote the last chorus as a tribute to her relationship with Chad.  Awwwww…

Just let her go, Chad...

Just let her go, Chad…

Oh, what a jinx.  Rumors have been rampant since last November that the honeymoon is over, and that Avril and Chad have separated and ditched the rings.  If that’s the case, I do hope neither of them has any trouble letting go of the memories of what was…. for how little time it lasted.  As for me, the only thing I will not be letting go of is my nose…

I can smell the stench of rotten love all the way down here in the States...

I’ll have at least one more Cupid disapproved Mecca song next week.  And if you enjoy my shitty musical tastes, I may have something special for you the next two days, should I get the time to put it together!

    I don’t mind Nickleback, at least a few of their songs were alright. Avril had maybe one song I liked. But holy squirrels, who did her fucking make up? Yikes.

    You know it’s called a face not a painting. Snorts. Throw some water on her – XOXO – Bacon

  3. That’s actually not THAT bad lol I hate reading about couples slitting up, especially if it’s a load of old balls concocted by the media.

    • I hate the tabloid stuff… gee, I would just love to have someone snooping in my business and reporting it to the world. But I had to go there for the purposes of my anti-VD message…

      Note: This sympathy excludes celebrities who are famous only because they demand to be, like anyone whose last name is Kardashian…

  4. I thought we were the only people left who refuse to celebrate Valentine’s Day. My mother was a Valentine Refuser too. She called it a “Hallmark Holiday” and refused to acknowledge it, so I had no one for whom to make paper valentines. You know, the ones at school made of paper doilies and red construction paper? I gave them to the dog. OUR dogs don’t want anything that isn’t edible. Boo hoo!

    • There’s nothing more awkward than celebrating Valentines Day in grade school before the hormones have kicked in. I’ve always hated that stupid day. But it must be sweet if you’re a dog! Awwwww!
