Nickelback have engaged in a Twitter way with Atlanta Braves relief pitcher Peter Moylan according to Loudwire.
Moylan cast the first stone after seeing Foo Fighters live in Melbourne, Australia. Impressed by Foos frontman Dave Grohl, Moylan tweeted — "Note to @nickelback please attend a @foofighters concert. That's how's it should be done Chad."
Nickelback went for the throat with their reply to the Moylan, referencing fellow Braves relief pitcher and 2011 National League Rookie of the Year, Craig Kimbrel – "@PeterMoylan Foos are killer for sure. We're doing just fine, too, thanks. ? for you Pete, is watching Kimbrel better from the bench or on TV? … p.s. happy birthday…"

Nearly 40,000 Detroit rock fans have signed a petition calling for Nickelback to be ditched as the half-time entertainment during a high-profile football game.
The Canadian band have been booked to appear at the nationally-televised Thanksgiving game between the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers on November 24.
But thousands have come out in support of an online campaign to have them replaced.
The Change.org petition reads: “Do we really want the rest of the US to associate Detroit with Nickelback? Detroit is home to so many great musicians… and they chose Nickelback?
“Does anyone even like Nickelback? Is this some sort of ploy to get people to leave their seats during half-time to spend money on alcoholic beverages and concessions?
“This is completely unfair to those of us who purchased tickets to the game. At least the people watching at home can mute their TVs.”
Whether their music gives the ladies a visual image of Chad Kroeger’s poodle-perm or because ‘Figured You Out’ is about dirty whore-bangin’, a new study says that Nickelback’s music is about as attractive as braided armpit hair.
The music/dating website Tastebuds.fm helps people find companions they are musically compatible with. They’ve also been responsible for a number of music/sex related surveys — they made news earlier this year with a poll that said Nirvana fans were the most likely to put out on the first date.
The websites most recent survey examined the exact opposite end of that spectrum. When asked what bands were turn-offs, an average of 13% of Tastebuds.fm users (both sexes) said that they would not engage in sexual relations with someone who was a Nickelback fan. While the pop-rock group stood alone at first, they were followed by fellow Canadian/Billboard chart neighbor Justin Bieber — who landed at #2. Other rock groups in the top 10 included Creed, U2, and Coldplay.
Nickelback’s new album (that will most likely not get you laid) ‘Here and Now’ is set for release on November 21st.
