A bit of a pickle

I’m on the record saying the Nickleback are the world’s worst band. I stand by my statement. It also turns out that singer Chad Kroeger has no sense of humour.

If you’re on Facebook you’ve probably been invited to join a little social experiment called “can this pickle get more fans than Nickleback.” I confess to almost signing up. I ignore all similar requests as a matter of principle (though I am a fan of Bacon).

The Nickleback frontman didn’t like it very much when the pickle eventually became more popular – and he joined the group to have a little rant (this is the first time I’ve ever linked to Perez Hilton – it’ll probably be the last.

What he should have done was invited the pickle to join the band on its next tour.

Just don't ever confuse Nickel Creek with Nickelback. Nickel Creek is far superior.

Yeah, I agree, terrible band. And the guy just doesn't cut it for me as rock star material. He kinda looks like your mates annoying older brother in school.

He was such a sook about the pickle thing, it was ridiculous. Dude, you're competing with a gherkin- stop and think about that for a sec.
