The same people who proclaimed Coldplay fans have the least sex on first dates have returned with a new study that says telling a potential partner you're really into Nickelback is sexual kryptonite.

Tastebuds.fm, a website that helps singles find others who share their musical taste, asked its users which acts are turnoffs, and the Canadian rockers — whose Here and Now is due November 21 (any press is good press?) — came in first. But not by much! Chad Kroeger and Co. only picked up 13 percent of what was evidently a quite divided vote. Justin Bieber came in a close No. 2, followed by Lady Gaga, Ke$ha, Coldplay, and U2. Then there's Creed. But after that, Katy Perry, Lil Wayne, and Britney Spears. That's sort of a large swath of the popular music landscape (and Creed).

Tastbuds.fm went a step further, analyzing which acts appeared on men's lists as opposed to ladies' and learned their male users are also not fans of Oasis, Mumford & Sons, Kings of Leon, Eminem, and Kanye West. The women's rundown included both Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus, Rebecca Black, Insane Clown Posse, and James Blunt.
