Ha Ha, you suck Nickelback

Do you think any of the members of Nickelback have ever told anyone in their family that they're actually in Nickelback? Probably not. I wouldn't. From CBS Detroit:
Detroit has it tough, with falling home prices, high unemployment, struggling manufacturing, and crime so rampant in the downtown city bus drivers say they’re “scared for their lives.”

Now comes another blow: Nickelback.

The formulaic, faux rock n’ roll band is scheduled to perform the halftime show for the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day, one of the most anticipated home games of the season. But fans aren’t taking it lying down, with more than 43,000 people signing a petition at change.org that asks show producers to reconsider their choice.

“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.”
Why do these people care so much about the halftime show? Nobody watches that crap. The people at home change the channel to something more interesting like Giada on the Food Network (boobies!), and the fans in the stands don't get to see it because they're too busy standing in line to take a piss, or in Detroit's case, committing some kind of crime. Sure Nickelback sucks, but the people living in Detroit have bigger things to complain about -- like living in Detroit.
