Nickelback themselves have often been the butt of many jokes and criticisms. Frontman Chad Kroeger’s wife and pop-punk star Avril Lavigne recently hit back at Facebook boss Mark Zuckberg for ‘bullying’ the band, while, Canadian police were recently forced to apologise after ‘threatening’ to use Nickelback’s music to punish drink drivers – while the band spoke out in response to a dig from Royal Blood who slammed them and compared them to Hillary Clinton.
Father John Misty however, was more than willing to defend the band.
“I will ride for Nickelback, OK?” Tillman told NME. “Because this whole Chainsmokers thing I read about recently, when I was wasting time on the internet, and someone wrote some article about how horrible Nickelback is or something.”
He continued: “‘How You Remind Me’… That’s a fucking great song. Have you heard that song? It’s great.”
