Aussie cops accuse Nickelback of 'crimes against music'

Postmedia Network

Even the cops are taking a crack at Canadian rockers Nickelback.

The Queensland Police Service in eastern Australia tweeted an urgent warning late Tuesday for the public to "be on the lookout" for four men "wanted for crimes against music."

The notice features caricatures of Nickelback's lead singer Chad Kroeger, and the three other members.

The group from Hanna, Alta., performed in Boondall the same night as part of its No Fixed Address Tour of Australia, Europe and North America.

It appears the Aussie police force doesn't take kindly to the foursome.

In December, the same police force shared a photo of a Nickelback CD and referred to it as a "suspicious package" it received in the office's secret Santa exchange.

"It will now be destroyed," police posted on Facebook with the hashtags: #BlameCanada #JokesOnUs.
