Fan Mail

This is a recent email from K***, a high-school teacher in Jasper, Alberta.  She enjoyed some of our show but seems to have had some problems with some of our stage presentation.  Here is the e-mail she sent in full, unedited:


I watch you guys play in Jasper, AB at the Downstream bar the other night.  Lots of talent!  However, you drank way to much during the two sets.  Your second set was awful.  Taking off all your clothes was disgusting.  Usually I like guys in speedos but I was disturbed.  Plus there was 90% males in the bar.  It was a bad decision.  You shouldn't do that at your next show.  At least some of you covered you genitals with your musical instruments but the larger guy was too much to handle.   Thought you might want to know from a girls perspective.  If the second set never happened or you can promise it won't happen again I will spread the word you are worth seeing.

And here is our response, unedited:

Dear K****:

We are thrilled, capital-t Thrilled at your offer to "spread the word" about our fledgling group in the huge, bustling metropolis of Jasper, Alberta.  As everyone knows, Jasper, Alberta is where Nickelback got their start and we cannot wait to follow in their mighty footsteps.  We will of course make any and all changes to our show that you request.  However, you should know that if we had a nickel for every time a woman thought our bass player was "too much to handle", we would have more money than Nickelback!

Your Friends,

The Dreadnoughts


  1. show more skin!

  2. hahahahaha... wait.... hahahahah... *eats some Australian poutine....* hahaha... too much to handle


  3. This is fucking hilarious.

  4. It sounds like that woman shouldn't be at Dreadnoughts shows, and should just stick to the albums. Booze and less-than-desirable nudity makes their shows what they are!

  5. Well, from a girls perspective - when musicians take off their clothes - is a great thing. I'm a girl, I know it!

    What she was thinking of? And how old is she? 60? Or maybe she is not only a high-school teacher, but also a nun, who doesn't know what actually happends on punk concerts. lol

  6. Hey, why didn't you take off your clothes at Berlin?? I'm jealous ;)

    (also a girl)

  7. obviously you didn't get the point of the punk mentality, let the guys do whatever they fckin want. When you get a band together you can do whatever you want.

    These guys are so badass

    let them be.

  8. bahahahahaha!!!! Nice. And why haven't I seen any of you naked? I feel left out. I could be a grammar/spelling nazi and mention the high school teacher screwed up with what should have been a "too" and "your".

    Sad we missed that show. Glad you guys err, let it all out, after the 3 shows in Edmonton that should have been much more fun ;)


  9. bahahaha I love that Nickelback gets thrown in! They are my only piece of shame to being Canadian! What a random comment that cannot be disregarded due to the classic response it created! Love it!
