Should Nickelback stop making music?

Over 50,000 people think that highly successful Canadian rock band Nickelback should stop making music according to a petition started by a Detroit resident who doesn’t want the band to perform during the Thanksgiving Day halftime football show. What do you think? Comments welcome below. Personally, I really don’t care for Nickleback’s music, their attitude, their songwriting or their looks. I think they are a poor choice to be a candidate for representing Canadian music when there are so many more talented yet not-as-successful Canadian bands (just google Nomeansno for example.) Of course, I am a bit of realist. I know that my opinion is small and singular. 50,000 people don’t want Nickelback to perform. Yet they’ve sold over one million albums. So uhhh … do some math, people.
