Last week, the police force of a town on Prince Edward Island in Canada announced that it played Nickelback songs in police cruisers punish suspected drunk drivers on their way to get booked.
In the initial Facebook announcement, the Kensington Police said the music was targeted at those "dumb enough to feel they can drink and drive." That post has since been deleted, CNN reports.
Days later, Kensington Constable Robb Hartlen apologized to the band and to his constituents.
Hartlen said the story going viral overshadowed its anti-drunk driving message.
And that prompted me to think less about Nickelback as the 'Entity' and more about the 4 guys, 4 human beings from Alberta...
Hartlen also said he felt hypocritical after telling children that bullying was wrong, while he was effectively bullying what could arguably be considered everyone's least-favorite band.
Of course, Twitter's general hatred of Nickelback was not abated.

And the police department still had its 15 minutes of fame.
