It had to be the most snarked-upon marriage announcement since Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries revealed their ultimately ill-fated engagement, but the impending union of Canadian rockers Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger isn't being maligned everywhere.

After all, with over 50 million albums sold and the Billboard-given distinction of being the top rock band of the 2000s, Nickelback certainly have some fans. In fact, 14 million people like their Facebook page -- four million more than The Rolling Stones, and five million more than Madonna.

As such, it's no surprise that the engagement announcement got plenty of positive reactions on that Nickelback Facebook page. They number in the thousands, so here's just a sampling of 10 excited notes from well-wishing fans:
