“The description of this band should be self-evident,” says the Facebook for a Motown tribute band to one of the worst/best/worst/hate to love/ love to hate bands in the world–Nickelback. Wait, what?

A New York City-based musical project headed by Scott Bradlee, this Motown tribute band arguably makes Nickelback sound good. It’s pretty amazing how a different arrangement of a song/a different vibe/ non-frosted tips can make even the most hated music actually decent.

And even Nickelback likes them, apparently tweeting that they are “killer.” Like killing Nickelback’s career because they are so much better? Just kidding. Maybe.

Check out this cover of “How You Remind Me.” If you don’t feel like jivin’, you are either dead inside or your hate of Nickelback has scarred you into music snob stubbornness.
