In the world of Twitter wars, the one between Atlanta Braves relief pitcher Peter Moyland and the rock band Nickleback might be the most random one that I’ve seen.

On Friday night, Moylan sent out this Tweet from his account to the Canadian rock band:

Note to Nickelback please attend a Foo Fighters concert. That’s how’s it should be done chad.

Later than night, someone posting on the Nickleback Twitter account sent out the below Tweet which takes a shot at Moyland:

Foos are killer for sure. We’re doing just fine too thanks. ? for you Pete, is watching Kimbrel better from the bench or on TV?

Ouch, that’s a burn right there. If we’ve learned anything from Twitter, think before you post or Nickelback might come back with a witty retort.

    Nickelback sucks, but I’ve never heard of this guy slamming them, so he loses.

    Not a nickleback fan put that was an epic, almost, smackdown.

    Moylan would probably beat the shit out of Chad.
