Musicians are stuck at home just like the rest of us and while some are busy working on new material or playing livestreamed sets, others are taking on the Nickelback challenge.

The Canadian rockers tweeted out the rules for the challenge – pick a Nickelback riff and play it in one take without revisions – and some notable musicians are taking up the challenge or pressuring their bandmates to do so.

The band picked up on the challenge spreading over social media from one of their friends and sent the message to any musicians looking for something to do.

Of course, most of the people posting clips are just huge Nickelback fans but some notable musicians have also gotten in on the fun.

Three Days Grace vocalist and guitarist Matt Walst posted a clip of him giving the challenge a try.

The Word Alive‘s Tyler Smith really wants his bandmates Tony Pizzuti and Zack Hansen to give the challenge a try but so far no response.

So far, no other big name musicians have hopped on the challenge but fans are having plenty of fun with it. You can see some of their posts below.
