We "all want to be big rock stars" right? Well, the band Nickleback claims to be one in one of their hit songs, but don't tell that to Mike Lee, a man who lives right here in the Valley but really isn't a fan of the band. 

He's organizing a protest Saturday night at the Ak-Chin Pavilion outside of Nickelback's concert. 

He says he's doing it for "all the right reasons" claiming Nickelback is "far away" from the comparisons the group makes to the Beatles. 

He said he was irked!

Who knows, "someday" maybe he will appreciate them; but for now, if you took a "photograph" of bad music, he says Nickelback would be all over it. 

As for the protest, he says it's one thing the country can unite behind. 

He's asking people to bring earplugs and anti-nausea medication; he's also going to be having a moment of silence in remembrance of what he and others deem the death of rock and roll.
