Nickelback just can't catch a break. The band's awfulness is a popular punchline, and the latest people to make a joke at the musicians' expense are officers of the law. Nickelback launched a world tour in Australia, the Daily Dot reports, so the Queensland Police issued a "wanted" poster with a picture of the band members. Their misdeed? "Crimes against music." The department posted it on Facebook Tuesday (the day before last night's concert in Brisbane, CBC reports) along with the note, "Police are on the lookout for these men who are believed to be impersonating musicians around Boondall this evening."
