Friday Fun: Nickelback + Motown = This
Nickelback continue to be the most meme-friendly band on the internet, with a new album of their songs performed in a Motown style.

The biggest surprise: it actually sounds pretty good.

The project started in late 2011, when a 55,000-strong internet petition begged for the band not to play a Thanksgiving show during a football game in Detroit.

At the time, New York pianist Scott Bradlee arranged a band to record a Motown-esque cover of "How You Remind Me", which proved so successful that it inspired them to start a Kickstarter campaign to fund the recording for a full album. $3,294 later, and the album is ready.

Listen to the Motown tribute to Nickelback here:

It's not the first time Nickelback have been the target of a web meme. In December they were unamused by a parody cover of "Photograph", and in 2011 one enterprising coder published a tool which blocks any mention of the band from the internet.
