It's no secret that even though the rock band from Alberta has sold millions of albums since it formed more than two decades ago, there are plenty of people who have loudly professed their hatred for the band.

Christmas is less than a month away, and with its imminent arrival comes all sorts of holiday parties. Unfortunately, some partygoers always choose to drive after having too much alcohol-infused eggnog. The Kensington Police Service in Prince Edward Island has just the thing for anyone caught driving under the influence - a hearty serving of Nickelback.

In a recent Facebook post, the police in Kensington - a city located about 40 kilometres northwest of Charlottetown - give suggestions to drivers who end up having too much to drink. It's all stuff we know, such as taking a taxi or Uber, staying over at a friend's place, or having a designated driver. Then, there's a terse warning given by the PEI law enforcement:

"Now, with that being said, know that the Kensington Police Service will be out for the remainder of year looking for those dumb enough to feel they can drink and drive. And when we catch you, and we will catch you, on top of a hefty fine, a criminal charge and a years driving suspension we will also provide you with a bonus gift of playing the offices (sic) copy of Nickelback in the cruiser on the way to jail."

The members of Nickelback even spoofed their own popularity in a Funny or Die video a few years ago.

With that being said, we're guessing the only thing worse than being fined and taken to jail for drunk driving, is being fined and taken to jail while listening to Never Again or - yech - How You Remind Me. So kudos to those fine men and women in blue for thinking up this idea.
