The Des Moines Register is reporting, "Nickelback will be one of the Grandstand acts at the 2017 Iowa State Fair." That's right, Nickelback. The band so many people love to hate.

The announcement was made last week, and immediately people were very angry on social media. There were a few people happy about the news, but not many.

I'm not sure why people hate the band so much. Was it because they allowed their song "Rockstar" to be used in a furniture commercial? Is it because their music all sounds the same? Whatever it is, people are angry.

For the non-haters, Nickelback will play at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, August 11. The Des Moines Register reports ticket prices will range in cost from $52 to $72.

I had a chance to meet Nickelback in Moline a few years ago. We all did a shot in their dressing room before the show. They seemed pretty cool, just don't tell any of my heavy metal friends I admitted this.
