Finally, a Kickstarter campaign worth getting behind...

Following on from the recent crowd-funding campaign organised to get Foo Fighters to play a concert in London, a similar campaign has been launched on the website Kickstarter designed to keep Canadian pseudo-rockers Nickelback away from the English capital.

Craig Mandell, who set up the campaign, hopes to raise $1,000 to fund a movement to keep the band from playing in London anytime soon.

Mandell wrote on the Kickstarter page called 'Don't Let Nickel Back': "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."

Each donation will automatically generate an email to be sent to Nickelback's management imploring them to stay well away from London, with the severity of the email dependent on the amount of money donated.

Nickelback are one of the most divisive bands in modern music and, with legions of fans online complaining about their every move, it seems now is the time for them to put their money where their mouth is.
