There's one thing not being popular, however, and another thing being so apparently naff that a major police force in Australia are moved to put a 'wanted' notice out about a band for 'crimes against music'.

That's what Nickelback had to greet them when arriving Down Under for the Australian dates of their 'No Fixed Address' tour that kicks off in Brisbane (the capital of Queensland) tonight.

The post got a mixed reaction when posted on the Queensland Police Service's Facebook page, with some hailing them for a cheeky dig and others accusing them of being unprofessional and propogating cyber bullying.

All Nickelback can do in an attempt to convince the doubters is to play a storming set in Brisbane; that is how they'll remind them of what they really are.
