As previously reported, The Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney trashed Nickelback in a recent interview with RollingStone.com.  Carney told the magazine that “rock and roll is dying because people became OK with Nickelback being the biggest band in the world."  Now if you were in Nickelback's shoes, how would you respond to this?  I don't think I would have been as light-hearted as they seemed to be about it.

On Thursday, Nickelback playfully responded to Carney’s rant by tweeting, “Thanks to the drummer in the Black Keys calling us the Biggest Band in the World in Rolling Stone. Hehe."  Now, that's not exactly what Carney was saying, but I guess that was the best response to a comment like that.  At least they'll avoid a twitter war like a couple of 12 year old girls...hopefully!
