The ten most epic Nickleback insults of all time

January 7, 2014


1. That time Nickelback was only slightly more popular than Congress

According to a recent poll, Nickelback is only seven points more popular than the United States Congress.

This is the same Congress that literally shut down the government for two weeks. We are not sure which side should be more insulted.

2. College Humor make a video of all the wikipedia vandalism on the Nickleback page

Wikipedia has always had issues with vandalism (ahem, Stephen Colbert), but when you’re Nickelback, people seem to take it to another level.

Thanks to College, we know have some of the best insults recorded forever in a video that’s slightly NSFW.

3. Dave Grohl tweets about Nickelback

Former Nirvana drummer and current Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl famously tweeted out the following harsh but hilarious insult about the much-maligned Canadian rock group:

“Nickelback walks into a bar…there’s no punchline because ruining music isn’t funny.”

4. Dave Grohl tweets about Nickelback (again)

This is what’s called piling on:

“If you play a Nickelback song backwards you’ll hear messages from the devil. Even worse, if you play it forwards, you’ll hear Nickelback.”


5. Google gets in on all the fun

Google ‘worst band in the world’ right now. Go ahead. I’ll wait here.

You’re welcome.

6. That time Nickelback got a brutal (but hilarious) review in a local newspaper

Back in 2012, Boise Weekly music columnist Josh Gross had this to say about an upcoming Nickelback concert in town:

“You can spend $45 to go see Nickelback this week. Or you could buy 45 hammers from the dollar store, hang them from the ceiling at eye level, and spend an evening banging the demons out of your dome.”

7. Car trouble

Then there’s this joke that went viral about the Canadian rock band:

“I took my car to the shop the other day because it was making a terrible noise. Turns out it was just Nickelback on the radio.”

8. That time someone made a Twitter account mocking Nickelback fans

They haven’t tweeted in quite a while, but Defensive NB Fan aka @Nickelback_Fan5 used to be one of the best follows on Twitter.

If you want a good laugh, go scroll through their old tweets for a few minutes.

9. Even Jesus hates Nickelback

Speaking of Twitter, did you know Jesus has his own Twitter account? It’s true, just check out @Jesus_M_Christ, who tweeted:

“Even I hate Nickelback”

That’s cold, Jesus.

10. That time a pickle got more fans than Nickelback on Facebook

Yes, you read that right, someone created a Facebook page simply named Can this pickle get more fans than Nickelback?

Congrats to the pickle for the victory (Though the page has since been removed).
