The City Of Detroit Really Hates Nickelback

Nickelback has been chosen to play the halftime show of the nationally televised Detroit Lions-Green Bay Packers Thanksgiving Day game. Detroit fans are furious. So they did what anyone would do, they started a petition to get them replaced. And that petition is blowing up.

The letter reads as follows:
“This game is nationally televised, do we really want the rest of the US to associate Detroit with Nickelback? Detroit is home to so many great musicians and they chose Nickelback?!?!?! Does anyone even like Nickelback? Is this some sort of ploy to get people to leave their seats during halftime to spend money on alcoholic beverages and concessions? 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. The Lions ought to think about their fans before choosing such an awful band to play at halftime.”

The petition currently has 27,850 signatures.
