Nickelback responds to Anti-Nickelback Facebook page

Posted February 23rd, 2010 at 12:31 pm by

At the beginning of February someone made a Facebook fan page and called it Can this pickle get more fans than Nickleback? Within 3 weeks, the page had achieved it’s goal, reaching nearly 1.5 million fans.  This is an email that was sent from Chad Kroeger to the creator of the group.

Let’s just hope the suits at FB understand how awful Nickleback is.

      Yes just saw that thanks. I’m starting to think that the creator of this group is letting her 15 minutes of fame get to her head.

    Wow, a little late with this one. The “Chad Kroeger” account is a fake, as I think everyone knows by now.

    a smart person would create a group named “the countdown to when Chad Kroger is closing the pickleback fan page! lets see if he can do it!”

    Lies… From the creator of the anti-NB group:
    “Guys, the Chad Kroeger account that has messaged me and that I print screened in those pictures is clearly not the real Chad! It was just someone with a fake account pretending to be him and I got a kick out of it! For those going around saying Chad is trying to shut down the page…Chad has not even said anything rega…rding this page, at least not that I know of! I only put those pictures up for jokes!”

    Nickelback isn’t awful – you’re awful. Tits have almost become less popular than proving how much you hate Nickelback these days, and that’s a real fucking tragedy, because tits are badass.

    Get a fucking life. Everyone has different tastes in music – get over yourselves already. I’m certain you could find 1.5 million idiots on Facebook who would sign up to hate basically any band in the world.

      Cry more, you little baby. Nearly anyone with a halfway decent taste in music finds Nickelback at least a little annoying

    According to the fan page, the Chad pictured here isn’t the real one, it was someone pretending to be him.

    The moderator of the Pickle group has said that this person is not Nickelback; rather, it is a troll of sorts.

    The creator of the fan page has confirmed that the message from “Chad” was actually a fake account. It was made by somebody else, probably some 12 year old internet troll.

    Uhm… Its not the real Chad Kroeger. So, good article? Like, it was widely known he was a fake a few hours ago. Not that it shouldn’t have been obvious in the first place but alright.

    There is no reason to believe that is actually Chad. The page creator does not believe that it is.

    You understand that this is admitted to being fake right? First of all the news is days old and the creater of the group already admitted it to being fake AND posting it in the group.

    fail page fails.

    Unfortunately, it’s not true. From an updated post by Coral: “Guys, the Chad Kroeger account that has messaged me and that I print screened in those pictures is clearly not the real Chad! It was just someone with a fake account pretending to be him and I got a kick out of it! For those going around saying Chad is trying to shut down the page…Chad has not even said anything regarding this page, at least not that I know of! I only put those pictures up for jokes!”

    The Chad Kroeger is fake. Coral told everyone that she was messaged by this guy, who is an impostor & she just kept it going for “kicks”. So technically Nickelback did not respond to the FB group.

    Not only is it a fake profile of Chad Kroeger, it isn’t even an email. It’s a facebook message.

    Oh god the new york times has gone down hill. This is the new york times yeah?

    i think that ‘Chad Kroeger’ account is probably made up by the Pickle Girl. She’s secretly in love with him and deep down wants the real Kroeger to msg her on fbook. :P

    everyone has the right to their own opinion, its just if you like nickelback 99.9% of all peoples opinions will disagree with you. AND I’m just gonna go ahead and say it. nickleback is for jinko wearing limpbiscuit fans who were raised in a trailer park. wow that felt good.

    I really don’t get why everyone has a problem with Nickelback.

    Nickelback fought their way to the top and they’re doing what they love. If they suck as much as you guys say then why do they sell so many albums? And have you ever seen them live? They’re amazing!

    It’s like Chad said in one of his interviews… he was asked how he felt about the people who didn’t like their music etc… his response?… Uh, yeah (said with sarcasm), we LIKE the music we play. Basically he was telling all you people that they aren’t going to conform to what you think they should be because they’re happy with who they are, they way they are.

    So what it boils down to is this… if you don’t like them then don’t listen…. and stop complaining about them. There are millions of people who think they’re awesome – myself included.
