Chad Kroeger describes his gross dare to a drum technician

If this is one of Chad Kroeger's favourite stories, then the guests at his wedding to Avril Lavigne are in for an R-rated reception.

The 37-year-old Nickelback frontman (and the "Ch" part of "Chavril") recently told Men's Health magazine "one of [his] favourite stories." According to Kroeger, once when Nickelback was touring in Germany, he dared the band's drum technician to "stick his johnson" into the metal blades of an electric fan for 600 deutschmarks (about $374 Canadian).

"We've always been very close to our crew, so we've had a lot of fun getting them to do silly, stupid things that could possibly cause them to hurt or injure themselves in some way," Kroeger began, so it's safe to assume that there are far more stories of dares gone awry on the Nickelback tour bus. Though this particular incident occurred while the band was bored backstage at a venue during a heat wave.

"I can still hear the 'bleh-bleh-blehhhhhhh' of the blade slowly sputtering to a stop, and this blood-curdling scream. It was fantastic. Somebody has video footage of this somewhere that needs to be resurrected and shown at the guy's next birthday party," the singer continued.

The Men's Health interviewer promptly moved on to other questions about the irony in Kroeger's song lyrics, a brutal breakup with longtime girlfriend Marianna Goriuk in 2009, and whether  he wants to have his first dance with fiancee Lavigne to a Nickelback song.

"Um. That would be a little strange. But since we have full control over what the DJ is going to be playing, I don't think there's any fear of us running into that. But I know 'Far Away' has been a part of many, many, many weddings. I get that all the time," Kroeger said, adding some sweet details as to how the two Canadian musicians became engaged. "There was a time in my life that I thought I would never get married. But this definitely took me by storm. Honestly, it was more my idea than hers to get married. I'm just lucky she said yes."

And now that Lavigne has said yes, Kroeger said she has taken control over the wedding planning -- and he's pretty excited about it.

"Let's just say she's taking the bull by the horns and steering the ship towards what is going to be the most unique wedding that the planet has probably ever seen," he said.

Fingers crossed that no fans are involved in the decorations.
