This Is How 'Nickelback' Reminds You Of How Irrelevant You Really Are
Let's be honest, Canadian outfit 'Nickelback' have been pounded by banter merchants and those not so intellectual for a number of years now. The group's used to it, especially lead singer and guitarist Chad Kroeger. I actually quite like them. Tweet me if you have an issue with that. Go on, I dare you.

The irony is they've become such a figure of ridicule that Kroeger believes it has actually kept the band going over the years, telling The Pulse of Radio in the United Kingdom that is still makes them relevant:
"All these critics, they're just tireless. They keep ragging on the band. If they had stopped writing all this stuff about us, there would be no controversy left in the band and we probably would have died out years ago."
"They don't know that they're still responsible for us being around today."
Fair play that he acknowledges the epic efforts of trolls, critics, and the majority of people across the world.
But there's finally been one tweet that has sent the band over the edge.
UK band 'Royal Blood' thought they were winning the banter battle when they suggested that Trump and Clinton, morphed together, would equal 'Nickelback'. Presumably meaning two terrible people make the worst thing on the planet. Fair 'Nickelback' slating.
'Royal Blood' are best known for the hits 'Figure It Out' and 'Out Of The Back', and, to be fair, I quite like them too. But I'm the old man of the editorial team, and I must say that recently I had completely forgotten about them. This is how the band from Brighton got shot down.
NIckelback jokes are like @royalblooduk, they were a lot cooler a couple years ago. :flag_ca: Don't drink and tweet fellas. Stay safe. XO https://t.co/Gb1IizED4c

FEEL. THE. BURN. Can't really argue with that to be fair.
Just to help Nickelback remain in the spotlight and fuel the hate some more (even though I don't really mean it), I'll just have a word about them now: shit.
