Nickelback “aren’t that great”

Popular rock band Nickelback aren’t actually that good, reports say.

The band, notable for songs including “Rockstar” and “How You Remind Me”, are known to have a large following amoung young people, however recently it has appeared that the band are overrated and their music is dull and unoriginal. Long time Nickelback fan Josh Johnson told Flamenews “I am so amazed by the discovery! I used to listen to their music without noticing how repetitive it actually is!”

Fans are noticing Nickelback's music isn't anything particularly special.

Money savings expert Sarah Ross has told fans of the band “to save money, you should simply purchase one Nickelback song from a service such as iTunes and listen to it on repeat instead of buying a full album. This is cheaper as it has the same effect for a much lower price.”

Flamenews will keep updated.

New cartoon violence rules to come into effect

After the long war against cartoon violence, new regulations are to come into effect this summer.

A newly formed group PAATOF (Parents Against Any Type Of Fun) have launched some new rules regarding cartoon violence which will come into effect in the UK from 1st August, 2010. Some samples of the rules included in the PAATOF’s 238-page document include –

  • Any animals shown in the cartoon must not have any visible claws or teeth as this may lead to children becoming frightened.
  • No characters are to be shown holding any kitchen equiptment as this may lead to cannibalism.
  • No characters are to have spiked hair as this may be able to hurt someone.
  • No electrical devices (such as televisions, media players) are to be shown as these could electricute somebody.

Some other changes that the PAATOF are planning to introduce to children’s programming is to remove all music from the shows as some musicians have taken drugs which would be a bad influence on young children.

PAATOF representative Donna Simpson told Flamenews “today’s children are not intelligent enough to distinguish the differences between real life and fantasy so we have to deprive them of anything we don not like.”

Anger as Daily Mail article is worth reading

Long term Daily Mail readers have been left in anger by a recent high-quality article published in the Daily Mail.

The article is of a much superior quality to previous Daily Mail articles, say readers, with some agreeing that it is nearly worthwhile reading.

The Daily Mail has a reputation of providing readers with celebrity stories which no-one cares about, which they have broken with this new article. Long-term reader Joe Country told Flamenews “I am disgusted by this new article. I bought a copy of the Daily Mail to read on the train this morning expecting to find out which celebrities have worn the same outfit twice, and out of the blue comes an intelligent article! I honestly don’t believe it!”

The Daily Mail have refused to comment.

Europe to feature in Guitar Hero game.

Hard rock band Europe are to feature in the new edition of Guitar Hero, reports say.

According to an earlier Activision press conference, “Guitar Hero: Europe” will feature exclusive motion captured versions of the band in-game, as well as access to exclusive photos and videos from Europe’s concerts.

Europe will feature in their own edition of 'Guitar Hero'.

The game will feature both of Europe’s hits as well as tracks from other bands who Europe say have inspired them, such as the Foo Fighters, blink-182 and Nickelback.

Throughout the game, developer Neversoft say that players “can feel what it’s like to be at [Europe’s] concerts and play on stage as a band who open for Europe”.

This follows the release of the hugely successful “Guitar Hero: Van Halen” released earlier this year.

YouTube hacked by space goats.

YouTube has been hacked by a team of skilled space goats, reports say.

On 4th July, 2010 a team of 5 goats who are currently living on Neptune exploited a weakness of popular video sharing website YouTube. This exploit allowed the goats to post scripts in the video comments which led to thousands of account details being stolen. The goats have since been selling these details to the crime ring ‘NeptuneFarm’ who have been gaining access to the accounts to upload videos of other goats dressed as Rick Astley.

A Google spokesperson told Flamenews, “This is one of the most dangerous cyber attacks in history, and it shows how easy it is for space animals to manipulate technology. Here at Google we are working on the situation.”

Flamenews wil bring more information as it comes.
