Where are the Nickelback Fans?

Last week a joke went around Facebook – it went something like this:

“Click here to see who you should immediately purge from your friend list” and then it would return a list of your friends who like Nickelback on Facebook.

Hating Nickelback has become The Thing To Do, but… this band is huge. If everyone hates Nickelback so much, who is going to their shows and buying their albums other than Avril Lavigne?

We decided to use our Fedica powers to find out.

Nickelback’s 645K Twitter followers come from 215 different countries. Here is the percent of followers from the top 15 of those:
