“Big Apple is fantastic, but cuts you down to size” lyric in Nickelback’s “Kiss It Goodbye” (2011)

Nickelback is a Canadian rock band that was formed in 1995 in Hanna, Alberta. The song “Kiss It Goodbye” on Nickelback’s seventh studio album, Here and Now (2011), contains these lyrics in verse one:

“Hollywood is plastic
But easy on the eyes
Big Apple is fantastic
But cuts you down to size
They’ll treat you like a doormat
Expecting you to fail
Says right across your forehead
Integrity for sale.”
