Nickelback Respond To Detroit Lions Petition

Written by John Ritchie on November 23, 2011

One of the most hated bands in the world at the moment, Nickelback, have posted a response video to the petition signed by 75,000 fans in a bid to get them pulled off the bill for the The Detroit Lions annual Thanksgiving Day game in the US.

Nickelback frontman, Chad Kroeger told MTV that it was the guys from Funny or Die who came up with the idea for the video saying:

They called us up. They said, ‘This whole debacle that’s going on in Detroit it just lunacy. We here in the comedy field think it’s just perfect for making fun of, and if you guys would like to come down here … We’re huge fans of Funny or Die and anything Will Ferrell is associated with — we’re there. So we’re like, ‘Absolutely, we’d love to come and make fun of the whole thing and ourselves at the same time.’

Nickelback were also voted the top sexual turnoff in a survey run by tastebuds.fm earlier this month. Their survey found both men and women find Nickelback the number one musical turn-off. 11.8% of men and 14% of women said they would not date the opposite sex if they were Nickelback fans.
