The Daily News provides us with today’s “rumor that’s really the result of a late-night, half-drunken Google search”: “Nickelback’s alleged Christian-rock roots are the subject of Internet speculation, but the band’s antics as of late leave no doubt they’ve abandoned any puritanical practices.” “Alleged Christian-rock roots”? “Internet speculation”? Unless Rush and/or Molloy are talking about a one year-old page on Yahoo! Answers and 40,000 other pieces of Google flotsam, I’m going to chalk this little slip-up to their inability to tell Chad Kroeger and Scott Stapp apart. (Here’s a hint for future reference: They may sound sorta alike, but one of them is actually still famous.) [Rush & Molloy]
