The Republican lawmaker was not amused by the prank and has expressed his distaste for the band in the past.

"To whoever just subscribed my email accts (family, work, obsolete) to multiple @Nickelback promotional & fan newsletters: It's. Not. Funny," Sasse tweeted Friday afternoon.

Sasse has a long history of hating the band, which recently made a Rolling Stone readers' poll for the top 10 worst bands of the 1990s.

Twitter users quickly responded with more Nickelback memes and jokes for the Nebraska senator.

Sasse has knack for social media gold. In May, he appeared in a viral photo with Sens.
