How many different Nazi arm bands are there?

Sorry to take so long in answering. It took me a while to remember where my information was located.

Nearly all armbands were worn by members of the Political, not the Military branches of the Nazi Government.

25 Nazi Party. The higher your rank in the Party, the more elaborate the armband. 4 SA (Storm Troopers) 1 NSKK (Motor units of the NAZI Party. 1 RAD (Labor Corp) 2 HJ (Hitler Youth) 3 SS (Hitler's Bodyguards) 1 NSD (Student's Organization) 2 Workers Organization - - - - - - - This was the limit of my sources, but I suspect that there were others. One that comes to mind was issued at the end of the war (which I have) saying: "Deutsche Wehrmacht" meaning the wearer had no uniform, but he was a member to the German Army. I also have an Army Armband, but have no source either saying why it was worn, nor have I ever seen a photo of anyone wearing it.

Hope this is of some help, John

How did the band Nickelback get its name?

The typical defensive set has two corner backs and two safeties (free safety and strong safety). The nickelback is the additional player added on plays when the defense is definitely expecting a passing play. He becomes the fifth, hence nickel, back in the defense's 'secondary' unit.
Nickelback's bass player, (Mike Kroeger) came up with the name. He used to work in a coffee shop (Star bucks) and was constantly saying, "here's a nickel back" when giving change.

Why do so many people hate grammar?

I believe that there are a few reasons that grammar is such an unpopular subject to study.

1. Many of the rules are arbitrary. This means that someone somewhere decided that we would do things one way, and that's the way it is. People in general are opposed to rules that they feel are arbitrary.

2. Learning proper grammar is very difficult, more difficult than native speakers want to realize. Those who have been speaking and writing the language don't want to be told the rules. They feel that they already know them.

3. Most people don't want to have to learn the parts of an engine before they can drive a car. Why should I have to know the difference between a transitive verb and an intransitive verb?

Because all the teachers are w*nkers

Edit by DaftVirgin:

I personally hate grammar because it's just too much. The fact that you have to learn every rule of the (insert a language) grammar by heart in order to communicate, is just demotivating. In some languages grammar can also be very complicated (like French) and it gets harder if you are learning multiple languages because every language has its own grammar (trust me, I'm learning Dutch, German, French and English at school).

More thoughts

There is evidently a lot of confusion about this subject. Not least, confusion between 'grammar' and 'the rules of grammar'. Fortunately, it's demonstrably not necessary to learn 'every rule' of any language's grammar by heart in order to communicate, or none of us would ever be able to communicate in any language!

It's true that many of the rules of grammar are, or seem, arbitrary. But this certainly does not mean that 'someone somewhere decided that we would do things one way, and that's the way it is'. The norms evolved over a very long period of time, and are still evolving. All users of a language contribute to this process of evolution.

It's true that some teachers (of any subject) can be inadequate, and thus deprive their pupils of the pleasure that they should be able to take in the achievement of competence (in any subject). That is a reflection on the teachers, not the subject.

Why should you have to know the difference between a transitive verb and an intransitive verb? Well, you don't HAVE to know, obviously, but why do you object to knowing? The more you use your brain, the better it will serve you for the rest of your life.

Finally, here is another, equally valid, question to ponder:

'Why do so many people love grammar?'

When did Green Day become a band?

Answer

Green Day first became a band in 1987 . It wasn't called "Green Day" yet though, it was called Sweet Children. Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt formed it. In 1989 adding drummer Al Sobrante and changing the name to Green Day, that same year they independently released their first EP called "1000 Hours". Soon signed a contract with Reprise Records, (a division of Warner) and released their first album, then replaced drummer Al Sobrante, who quit the band for college, with Tre' Cool. Who is still with the band.

Answer

Green Day became a band in the mid' 80's and it was started by Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt (not dimt)

Answer

Since the pop punk explosion heralded by super-band Nirvana, few bands have had the success and influence that Green Day have had.

With the 1994 major label release of their album Dookie, Green Day has brought the late 1970s pop-punk sound to a new generation of teens. Their music is frenetic with the three cord energy and style of post-punk pop and they have opened the door for countless other pop-punk, ska-rock and skater metal bands who have followed their lead.

Green Day hails from the San Francisco Bay Area - Berkeley to be exact - home of a thriving post-punk underground subculture. Billie Joe Armstrong (guitar, vocals) and longtime friend Mike Dirnt (orig. Mike Pritchard) began playing music together at the age of 14 and formed the band Sweet Children. In 1989 the duo, renamed Green Day, added drummer John Kiffmeyer and independently released their own EP, 1,000 Hours.

The California hardcore punk scene embraced the EP and the band soon signed with local indie label Lookout. Green Day's first full-length album, 39/Smooth, was released later that year. Some time after this release the band replaced Kiffmeyer with their current drummer, Tre Cool (orig. Frank Edward Wright III). The band moved into the '90s, amassing more fans as time rolled on. Their big break came with the release of their second album, Kerplunk, which attracted major label attention. This led to a record contract with Reprise. In the spring of 1994, Green Day released its major label debut, Dookie, which drew the attention and support of MTV. The heavy rotation of the video for the song "Longview" catapulted the band into the alternative mainstream.

Their ascent continued into the summer of '94, as the single "Basket Case" spent five weeks at the top of the modern rock charts. During Woodstock '94 the band stole
Green Day formed as a band in early 1987, though they were originally called Sweet Children.

This 35 year old song is still on most rock stations play list in 2009!!! Irving Berlin's "White Christmas" is also very popular - but it is very seasonal!!

1) The band originated in Canada...Well to be more specific, the band originated in Hanna, Alberta, Canada.

The year was 1995.

3) The band went through two drummers, Ryan Vikedal (Ryan Peake's friend) and Daniel Adair (Current drummer). Ryan Vikedal left and was replaced with Daniel in 2005.

4) Mike Kroeger, which is the oldest member in the band, was the first to get married and start a family. Now, this is obvious...he is the elder brother of Nickelback's frontman, Chad. (Also refer to fact #28)

5) Daniel Adair was associated with other acts prior to being Nickelback's drummer: Three doors down, Theory of a Deadman, Burn Halo, Suspect and Martone. He started playing drums at the age of thirteen.

6) Chad Kroeger worked with Josey Scott (lead singer in the band, "Saliva") for the the single "Hero", that was incorporated into the movie "Spiderman".

7) Nickelback's Rockstar music video featured some celebrities and other singers such as: Kid Rock, ZZ Top member, Billy Gibbons (another cool band), Dale Earnhardt jr.(NASCAR driver) the crew from American Chopper and the Naked Cowboy (He's seen walking around NYC sometimes) Check it on MSN video sometime!

8) The first album ever to be released by them was called "Curb" (1996) then "The state" (2000) "Silver Side up" (2001) "The long Road" (2003) "All the Right Reasons"(2005) and Dark Horse (2008).

9) Nickelback was nominated about 62 times and won 26 awards.

10) Ryan is the second oldest, then Chad and last, Daniel.

11) Rockstar was a third hit featured in the "All the Right Reasons" album. It's the conclusion to that album.

12) Nickelback performed a popular ZZ Top song, "Sharp Dressed Man" in tuxedoes and dark sunglasses. This is on Youtube!

ZZ Top is pretty good band too! Why do you think they performed this song?

13) Chad Kroeger performed with Carlos Santana (popular electric guitar player) for the song "Why don't You and I" (2002)

that was included with Santana's album "Shaman". Then Chad returned in 2007 and performed the song "Into the Night" for Santana's album, "Ultimate Santana". Check on Youtube!

14) Nickelback never won a Grammy Award. (Not yet! But they will!)

15)They were inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame in the year 2007.

16)The name of the band, Nickelback was given to them because Mike Kroeger often said to people at his old job in a coffee shop, "Here's your nickel back!"

17) Their full names are:

Chad Robert Turton

Michael Douglas Henry Kroeger

Ryan Anthony Peake

Daniel Patrick Adair

18) Nickelback has been around for about 16 years.

20) One thing mentioned in an interview about the new album, "Dark Horse" is that Nickelback isn't too fond of shooting music videos. They rather shoot something with animation in it. Hey it's true! It might even be a good idea to consider if people are uncomfortable in front of a camera. Check on Youtube.

21) The band shot the music video "Gotta be Somebody"(4:13) twice.

22) I hate this one: I've heard on Youtube that the band got booed off stage and some idiots threw rocks at them! They were only on their second song!

Listen: If your planning to go to a concert, don't act chaotic! I mean, you go to a concert to just listen to their music, not to ruin their act.

23)Nickelback has recently completed their "Dark Horse Tour". Don't worry, once a new album comes out they will be back on tour....as usual.

24)Nickelback was also on this talkshow called "The Hour". And yes, this is on Youtube!

25)Birth dates:

Chad Kroeger: November 15, 1974 (Age:36)

Ryan Peake: March 1, 1973 (Age:38)

Daniel Adair: February 19, 1975 (Age:36)

Mike Kroeger: June 25, 1972 (Age:38)

26)Check the music video: "If Today was Your Last Day". I found it on Youtube a few days ago but they said they will take it off eventually. If it is not available on Youtube, check out the Bing search engine or MSN Video.

Example: "Never Gonna be Alone" is located on the 2008 track, "Dark Horse". Even though the music video was released in 2009, I only put the year the song was released.

30)Every single album they made so far has eleven songs each except the "Curb" and "The State" which both consist of twelve.

31)The song on the 1996 "Curb" album which was titled "Just Four" was again put on the 2001 album "Silver Side Up" as "Just For" (I think the song on the Silver Side Up album is better. Hey, that's my opinion. It's the same lyrics but the newer version sounds better.)

34)The band also released a CD titled "Hesher" ("Hey Sure") before the "Curb". (Not considered a studio album like the other six)

35)Chad Kroeger worked with Chris Daughtry for Daughtry's song:"No Surprise". He has recently worked with country singer, Tim McGraw for a song titled:"It's a Business doing Pleasure with you" along with Brent James.

36)"Something in Your Mouth" is the starter for the album "Dark horse".

37)Never Again is the starter for the album, "Silver Side Up".

38)Another song that's nice is "I'd Come for You" (4:22) {Sorry about the info I posted before, it turns out the music video was created after I said it wasn't}

Why does Green Day rock?

It's simple, and has nothing to do with what genre they fall into or how many hits they have. If you like them, then they rock. If there's something about them that makes you smile then that's why they rock.

They rock because they know stuff about life, and because they have awesome songs.
