Best Gig Listing Ever?

By Luke Lewis

OK, so actually hating Nickelback has become as obvious and cliched as the band's music - but these days there's no genuine malice in the online barbs. Nickelback mockery has evolved into a fun meme. There's a tool you can use to eliminate all mentions of the band from the page you're viewing. Hell, there's even talk of Nickelbacking being the new Rick-rolling (though personally I think it should be renamed 'Kroegering').

And here, via Uproxx is a further helping of anti-Kroeger venom. It's taken from a local paper in Idaho, and it's quite spectacular. You can just picture the put-upon listings editor cackling to him/herself, thinking, "Can I get away with this..?"
