Nickelback named #1 musical turn-off

Picture the scene: you've just enjoyed a fantastic first date and suddenly found yourself back at their place. Feeling pretty pleased with yourself, your happiness is rudely interrupted by their choice of music: Nickelback.

Frantically grabbing your coat and reeling off some excuse about your ruptured spleen, you race back home.

It's a harrowing tale and new data shows that it's probably happened more times than we'd like to believe. Music site Tastebuds.fm asked their users which band or artist would be the most effective cold shower when meeting a new love interest.

Both men and women agreed on pop-rockers Nickelback and their brand of radio-friendly, ear-splintering cruelty, with Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga following close behind.

You can see how men and women voted here:
