Music blog invents tool to eliminate Nickelback from the web
A music blog has launched a new plugin called 'Nickelblock' to eliminate all mentions of Nickelback from web browsers.

Those who download the free service from Aux.com can eliminate all traces of Chad Kroeger and co when they're surfing the internet.

Despite enjoying a 15-year-career that has spawned seven studio albums, Nickelback have often found themselves the recipients of derision by music lovers. A survey carried out by dating site Tastebuds.fm showed that the Canadian arena rockers were considered the biggest musical turnoff. They picked up 13% of the vote and beat the likes of Coldplay and Lady Gaga to the top spot.

Earlier this month, meanwhile, angry American football fans started an online petition to stop the band from performing at a halftime Thanksgiving show. Over 50,000 supporters of the Detroit Lions signed the petition, in the hope that Nickelback would be axed from the halftime show of their fixture against the Green Bay Packers.

Nickelback released their seventh studio album, 'Here And Now', earlier this week (November 21). Talking about the LP, Kroeger said: "We entered the studio this year with a vision, and it all came together. We're extremely happy with the results, and can't wait to share them with our fans."

The LP, which is the follow-up to their 2008 effort 'Dark Horse', was previously streaming for free on iTunes. Should you be able to stand it, you can watch the video for Nickelback's current single 'When We Stand Together' below.
