When Nickelback was announced as the band for the halftime show of the Detroit Lions' Thanksgiving Day game earlier this month, many of the team's fans were outraged; one detractor created an online petition to have the Canadian rockers replaced with a local act. In this Funny or Die video, the band respond to the ridiculousness of the controversy by getting silly in a sketch featuring The League and Human Giant comedian Paul Scheer. So why are Nickelback so hated? Well, we can rule out the goat-fucking rumors. "We make love to goats," clarifies frontman Chad Kroeger.
