Canadian rock band, Nickleback have long become the butt of everyone’s jokes. One quick search of the internet and
you’ll find dozens of memes like “Friends don’t let friends listen to Nickleback.” “What’s 45 cents? a Fifty Cent concert
There’s many theories why that is: Creed broke up, they’re Canadian, etc. but now their infamy
has reached new levels. Two 20 something’s were detained by the police in Idaho after they were overhead at a gas station discussing the band.
The cops thought they said “nicklebag” as in a $5 amount of marijuana which is now perfectly legal just across the state line in Washington but apparently
still a heinous crime in Idaho but the two swear they said “Nickleback” in reference to the music blasting out of a passing car. Certainly a far worse crime in
some hipper regions of the country but still technically not illegal. They cops let them go. Luckily they had videotaped the incident and now the bumbling
cops look like fools and the bullies that they are. Good thing the two weren’t discussing Matchbox 20.
