Nickelback must be of the "glass half-full" ilk, because the band has responded to Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney's dig in a Rolling Stone cover story by tweeting their thanks.

Carney told Rolling Stone, "Rock & roll is dying because people became OK with Nickelback being the biggest band in the world." The Canadian rockers responded with gratitude, tweeting, "Thanks to the drummer in the Black Keys calling us the Biggest Band in the World in Rolling Stone. Hehe." They chose to ignore the next part of Carney's remarks, which referred to Nickelback as "shit."

Does this have the makings of one of the most polite feuds of 2012? The year is still young.
