Shadow treasurer Joe Hockey has named Canadian rock band Nickelback as one of his favourites, to the surprise of some of his Twitter followers.

Australian Reddit users highlighted the Tweet, with one Redditor commenting: “Liking Nickleback is political suicide”.

Josh Withers of radio channel 4BC notes that this isn’t the first time the Federal Member for North Sydney has named Nickelback as one of his favourite bands.
