Nickelback Rock Detroit Despite Petition
Nickelback defied a 55,000 strong petition which called for them not to play a Thanksgiving show during a football game in Detroit. We first reported on the petition when it hit 20, 000 signatures, but by the big day it had more than doubled. "This is completely unfair to those of us who purchased tickets to the game. At least the people watching at home can mute their TVs," said Dennis Guttman, the 22-year-old student who started the petition. However, Henne Music now reports that Guttman may have been associated with a local artist who wanted to take the slot. The band responded to the petition in good humour, starring in a self-parody video to make light of the situation. Sadly for the band, a recent survey by a music dating site found that Nickelback proved to be the biggest turnoff in a music taste, according to SDB. Others have even taken their dislike to the band so far that they developed a browser plugin to block every mention of the word "Nickelback" from their internet. The band continue to be a commercial success in the face of any haters, having sold more than 3 million copies of their 2008 album "Dark Horse". They are currently promoting their newest album "Here And Now".
