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.
