Throughout the 2016 presidential election, Nickelback have been frequently used to repudiate candidates, whether as a barometer to judge the electability of Donald Trump or simply to troll Ted Cruz. It appears all those shit-talking has finally gotten to the illegitimate child of Pearl Jam and Guy Fieri.

In a tweet over the weekend, UK rockers Royal Blood equated Nickelback to Trump and Hillary Clinton. Not really sure why this of all jokes was the tipping point, but Nickelback responded with a rather impressive dig, writing, “Nickelback jokes are like @RoyalBloodUK, they were a lot cooler a couple years ago. Don’t drink and tweet fellas. Stay safe.”

On a side note, of course NIckleback can’t even spell their own name right.
