The name Nickelback
is perhaps one of the most divisive amongst modern rock fans. While some are all on board with the Canadian rockers, others approach them with a heated combination of scorn and derision. Yet, in spite of their somewhat slippery status, it turns out Nickelback are still more popular in the U.S.A than Congress.
As Consequence of Sound
notes, the results come from a survey conducted by Public Policy Polling which showed that 39% of people preferred Nickelback compared to 32% for Congress.
The news comes after Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger
and wife Avril Lavigne
released their first collaboration. The single, titled "Let Me Go," will appear on Lavigne's upcoming self-titled studio album, which features 8 tracks co-written with Kroeger. The record also features a guest appearance from shock rocker Marilyn Manson
But what do you think? Do you like Congress more than Nickelback? Does the Chad/Avril single change your opinion in any way? Let us know in the comments.
