Though it may surprise you to learn that there are still individuals on Twitter taking the time to even make fun of Nickleback (didn’t we all agree on this a while ago, Guy Fieri–style?), it turns out that the band — or whoever runs its Twitter account — is very much paying attention. And sometime over the weekend, Nickelback and/or its Ghost Tweeter snapped. When you prick Nickelback, they do bleed! And they will now respond to your hate individually with sarcastic reply tweets. Some examples: “listening to the radio when spice girls came on so I changed the station and it was nickelback…obvi the radio wants me to rip off my ears” Nickelback’s reply: “so did you #missionaccompished.” And in response to “Fuck #nickelback I fucking hate them. I hope the all die”: “We’re Immortals, sent here to torment you. Seems to be working. Cool. By the way, nice grammar fail. Next time, spell check first.” Ohhh shit, Nickelback is making grammar calls! Watch out!
