Dontletnickelback: Crowdfunding For Music Lovers


Why didn’t anybody think of this before? There is a crowdfunding site raising money to ensure that the band Nickelback never plays in London ever again. The ingeniously named Donletnickelback is “attempting to ensure that Canadian ‘rockers’ Nickelback do not come to London, England to play a gig. With your help, we can ensure that the band do not schedule any gigs here, do not attempt to come here – nor even phone here.” Urging people to donate, the campaign makes a pretty compelling case why people should do whatever is possible to avoid the band’s music. “Just imagine, thousands – perhaps tens of thousands of music lovers  – all not witnessing an exclusive concert by Nickelback in London. It will be glorious. Legendary. Dare we say, game changing?”

There is even a helpful Q&A section for those who are unsure if they should contribute.


Q. What’s wrong with Nickelback?

A. Go listen to them. 


Q. I did listen to them. What’s wrong with Nickelback?

A. Ah, forgive us. You mean what’s wrong with them as in, what could possibly lead them to create such unlistenable music? We don’t know. 

The site has raised $253 of its $1000 goal (all the funds raised will go to charity.)
