Nickelback and The Chainsmokers Already Have The Best Bromance of 2017

In case you missed it, Esquire magazine (the favourite literature for wearers of overpriced cologne and drivers of overpriced cars) decided to declare The Chainsmokers "the Nickelback of EDM": http://www.esquire.com/entertainment/music/news/a52638/who-are-chainsmokers-nickelback/

Sure, cool, whatever that means, Esquire. For the record, you're the Axe bodyspray of magazines. Anyway, the Chainsmokers caught wind of it, are aware of how successful Nickelback's been, and replied:

To which Nickelback replied:

.@TheChainsmokers you may find this hard to believe, but we've been called way worse. It's only music guys, keep up the great work. #Truth pic.twitter.com/HnTpkELZha

This is an early favourite for Best Bromance of 2017, and a fantastic subtle middle finger to those who continue to feast on the low hanging fruit that is Nickelback (and now Chainsmokers?) jokes in 2017. Bravo. The world's got enough hate, be better.
