Relevant staff member Jesse Carey will be listening to Nickelback on loop for a week straight (Feb 16-22) in hopes of raising $5000 for a well for those in need. So far, $450 has been raised, and has 51 days to go. For more information, head here. If he wanted a real challenge, I'd suggest listening to Attila for a week straight.

The always reliable DailyMail, lol, are reporting that Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger are breaking up.

No one claims to like Nickleback and yet they've sold enough albums for Chad Kroeger to hook up Avril Lavigne with a 17 carat diamond ring.

Cassadee Pope will perform a duet with Avril Lavigne on the Season 3 finale of The Voice. This should start a new Kevin Bacon like game to connect everyone in music to Nickelback.

Remember that Nickelback cover Avril Lavinge was doing to do for that anime movie? Well, a new trailer for said movie has like a 30 second snippet of "How You Remind Me" in it -- it's in the replies for the bold.

Deryck Whibley (Sum 41) and his girlfriend dressed up as Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger for Halloween. The hilarity doesn't end there however, as Kroeger countered with a pretty sick burn.

SPIN has discovered how to quickly find out which of your friends "Like" Nickelback on Facebook. To find out, just click this. No, I am not kidding around. They also created these little tricks for Creed and The Black Eyed Peas.

In what will certainly be our most Canadian news of the entire day, Chad Kroeger of Nickelback recently opened up about his collaboration with Avril Lavigne.
From the ArticleKroeger and the band are currently working with Avril on a new record, which he says is up to eight songs. He says Avril has “a lot of tricks in her arsenal” ranging from straight-up rock to more “rhythmic”-oriented genres, and that he was impressed by her creative energy and range of talents. He was also impressed with her ability to hang, saying “she can pound the vodka, for a girl of her stature.”

When asked what exactly he’s doing with Avril, Kroeger said, “We were just gonna couple of tunes. And then she...

This week's record sales charts are in, and it looks like Attack Attack!'s This Means War managed to sneak into the top 10 overall with 17,500 sold. Congrats to Rise Records. Perhaps more importantly, they outsold Nickelback - who came in at No. 11. Please leave your thoughts on this in .gif form in the replies. Also relevant: Adele sold under 100,000 units of 21 for the first time in a long time, but if you count sales of 19, she was still over that benchmark.

After giving The Black Keys story so much press, we have to at least comment that Nickelback did respond via twitter. And they get some points for being classy.

The Black Keys will be on the cover of the next issue of Rolling Stone. And they're not pulling punches. In a recently released excerpt, found here, the band takes direct aim at Nickeback. Personally, I love seeing this kind of honesty from artists. Plus, it always helps when the punching bag deserves it.
From the ArticleRock & roll is dying because people became OK with Nickelback being the biggest band in the world,” he says, blowing cigarette smoke out the window of his rented East Village loft a few days *before the band heads to L.A. “So they became OK with the idea that the biggest rock band in the world is always going to be shit – therefore you should never try to be the...

A pair of music critics in Winnipeg have written a letter to the commissioner of the National Hockey League. The subject? They don't want Nickelback to play at the first Winnipeg Jets game in 15 years.

Nickelback has signed a "360" deal with Live Nation. If you're curious as to what this kind of deal (or other models) entails, give a look to this thorough explanation.
