Chicago Mayor Emanuel doesn't actually like Nickelback, despite a sign at the teachers strike that indicated otherwise.

When asked if the mayor is fond of the Canadian crooners, his spokeswoman Tarrah Cooper told RedEye in an e-mail "No."

A photo of a strike supporter carrying a sign that read "Rahm Emanuel likes Nickelback" went viral Monday night and was picked up on sites such as Gawker.

No word if the mayor will ask for a sign retraction.

UPDATE:

The man with the sign, 10th grade math teacher Mike Konkoleski, has changed it to say "Creed."
