One of the featured segments on Jimmy Kimmel Live is "Mean Tweets," where celebrities read mean tweets about themselves and react to the cameras.
On the most recent edition, the tweets targeted musicians. While most of the musicians were from the pop world, they did manage to include Korn and Nickelback.
Jonathan Davis read the Korn mean tweet – “Korn. F**k those guys more than Nickelback.” It looked like the rest of the members of the band were genuinely offended by the statement.
That segued into Nickelback reading “I would rather stab myself in the taint than hear another Nickelback song.” Frontman Chad Kroeger quickly responded “That’s funny: That’s how we make Nickelback songs.” Oh, snap!
In recent years, Nickelback have clapped back at being the butt of jokes, like when a Canadian police force joked that any civilian caught speeding would be forced to listen to Nickelback. The band made the police force take the post down.
There was even a study, so scientists could determine why people hate the band so much.
