Nickelback, who was credited yesterday with having the most intelligent lyrics in the Rock industry is now WANTED by Australian police for “crimes against music.” The band’s “No Fixed Address” World Tour is currently making it’s way through the area and authorities in Queensland are on the lookout for men believed to be impersonating musicians, otherwise known as Nickelback. They’re warning residents to avoid the area as it may be “hazardous to your hearing and street cred.”
Whether you love OR hate Nickelback, this is pretty funny!
Looks like we all owe Nickelback a big apology. According to a study of popular music, Chad and the boys have the most intelligent lyrics in Rock. There’s actually science to back this up! Imagine the reaction from Nickelback fans looks a little something like this right about now…

Van Halen frontman, David Lee Roth was asked this weekend at the Billboard Music Awards if he planned on playing any Sammy Hagar-era tunes during the bands current tour.

Question is, are you a bigger fan of Van-Roth or Van-Hagar?
