Stand by your band: Nickelback still on for Thanksgiving half-time show

Nickelback has to be one of the world’s most unpopular popular bands (right up there with Metallica!). I’m sure they’ll prove this when their new album debuts at #1 on the Billboard charts despite one (former?) major U.S. city not wanting them to play at a football game.

My advice to Detroit? Shut up and watch the game.

I understand hometown pride but this is ridiculous. So, what now? ONLY Detroit acts can play the half-time? I’m sorry that this once great city has fallen on tough times but it’s for this very reason they should stop worrying about what musician plays at a football game and concentrate on more important matters like housing, creating jobs and stopping things like, um, MURDER.
