Lawmakers debate Nickelback on House floor

Local News

A strange debate broke out on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Lawmakers were discussing an Election Reform Bill when the conversation turned to Nickelback.

Yes. The rock band, Nickelback. 

“Only four wanted to keep this provision. Everyone else wanted to change this out of the 77,000. That’s probably about the percent of people who think Nickelback is their favorite band in this country. It’s pretty low. And I think …Nickelback’s your favorite band? I apologize to the gentleman,” said Representative Mark Pocan. 

“How can you criticize one of the greatest bands of the 90s?,” replied Representative Rodney Davis. 

“Wow. Alright. One more reason why there’s a difference between Democrats and Republicans clearly,” said Rep. Pocan. 

Representative Davis also admitted that he does have a Nickelback song on his playlist.
