Here are some excitable fans in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

However, it's fair to say not everyone loves Nickelback, especially not the person who recently created this crowdsourcing campaign:

Inspired by a recent campaign to get the Foo Fighters to plan an unscheduled gig in Richmond, Virginia, the creator of the group, named by the Evening Standard as Craig Mandall, is trying to raise enough money to stop the band ever playing in London again.

Inspired by a recent campaign to get the Foo Fighters to plan an unscheduled gig in Richmond, Virginia, the creator of the group, named by the Evening Standard as Craig Mandall, is trying to raise enough money to stop the band ever playing in London again.

The Don't Let Nickel Back donation page declares: "With your help, we can ensure that the band do not schedule any gigs here, do not attempt to come here – nor even phone here."

"Just imagine, thousands – perhaps tens of thousands of music lovers – all not witnessing an exclusive concert by Nickelback in London. It will be glorious. Legendary. Dare we say, game-changing?"

Mandall is hoping to raise $1,000 to help stop Nickelback returning to the capital.
