They may not be quite as popular as they were back in 2002, but it looks like Nickleback are up there with James Blunt when it comes to hitting back at online haters.

The Canadian rockers, who performed in Dublin over the weekend, decided they weren't going to take a particularly nasty dig from English duo, Royal Blood, lying down.

And in fairness to them, it was a pretty slick comeback.

After the Brighton-based duo decided to compare the two American presidential candidates to the How You Remind Me crooners last Friday, the lads hit back and pretty much slayed.

Calling the lads out on their snarkiness, Chad and the crew replied: "NIckelback jokes are like @royalblooduk, they were a lot cooler a couple years ago. Don't drink and tweet fellas. Stay safe. XO" 

And it looks like Twitter users were on Nickelback's side when it came to this, with one writing: "THANKS GUYS BECAUSE INSULTING NICKELBACK IS HOW YOU RELEASE AN ALBUM."

"Maybe fist start selling an album or two before attacking another band. #Nickelback rocks btw…y'all dus suck #bye."

Singer Avril Lavigne last night confirmed that she and Nickelback star Chad Kroger were separating after two years of marriage, but many reports say they had secretly split some time ago.

Taking to Instagram to share a bittersweet picture of the pair in happier times, Avril said the split was amicable and that the pair would remain on good terms.

"It is with heavy heart that Chad and I announce our separation today. Through not only the marriage, but the music as well, we've created many unforgettable moments. We are still, and forever will be, the best of friends, and will always care deeply for each other," she wrote. "To all our family, friends and fans, thank you sincerely for the support."

The news comes just days after Chad was reportedly spotted in a Miami nightclub dancing flirtatiously with another woman. 

"He was saying that there aren’t that many places for him to go in Miami, he was happy to be there and be chill. He and the girl had a great time, they were dancing," an insider told Us Weekly of the encounter at E11EVEN club.

Rumours of a split began as far back as last September, when the same magazine reported that things were rocky for the pair, who married in 2013. "It’s over,” a source claimed at the time. “He has been going around L.A. telling people that they are divorcing.”

It hasn't been the best few weeks for Chad, with Nickelback confirming last week that they were cancelling all remaining 2015 tour dates while the singer recovered from vocal chord surgery to remove a cyst on his voice box.

We hope the pair find happiness again soon.
