This is Chad Kroeger: Lead Singer of Nickelback, husband to Avril Lavigne, and runner up in a popularity contest in which a pickle won.
The Londoner who launched the campaign is hoping to raise $1,000 to stop Nickelback from even phoning the UK.
"Just imagine, thousands – perhaps tens of thousands of music lovers – all not witnessing an exclusive concert by Nickelback in London. It will be glorious. Legendary. Dare we say, game-changing?"
However, in an interview with The Pulse of Radio, Kroeger actually credited the band's success to his haters:
Kroeger added “If [critics] had stopped writing all this stuff about us, there would be no controversy left in the band and we probably would have died out years ago.”
This means that the more you hate Nickelback, the stronger they become.
Chad Kroeger has responded to this campaign, saying he "loves it." We therefore expect all Nickelback fans to immediately contribute, as it will make him very happy. If you don't support our efforts to ban Nickelback, you'll be going against Nickelback. Is that what you want?
