Twitter Battles: Coyotes’ Paul Bissonnette vs. Vancouver Indie Band

It’s not uncommon to see athletes and bands battle with their haters on social media, but very rarely do you see a band vs. athlete matchup. On Wednesday night, Twitter saw Phoenix Coyotes’ Paul Bissonnette and the Vancouver-based indie band, Sweetheart, trade blows.

The beef started when @sweetheartband tweeted a compliment to Bissonnette about his social media skills while dissing his skills on the ice.

@sweetheartband
Hey @BizNasty2point0 it’s too bad u don’t play like you chirp. #minorswhenyourcontractisdone #benchwarmer #funnyonpaper #useswordsnotskill

@BizNasty2point0
Not sure which emo you are in that cheap excuse for a band @sweetheartband. Are you even on iTunes yet?

@BizNasty2point0
Hey @sweetheartband, did you guys get a group discount on those haircuts?

@sweetheartband
So @BizNasty2point0 yea we made more $$ than you last year. And we only toured In Canada. #4thliner #howhotdoyouwarmthatbenchfordoan

@BizNasty2point0
Cool story @sweetheartband. You couldn’t headline the Roxy on a monday night.

@sweetheartband
sold out the roxy, too bad you couldn’t do the same in Phoenix

@BizNasty2point0
On that note @sweetheartband. Since you guys are rolling in the cash, don’t go spending it all on skinny jeans and makeup.

@sweetheartband
Reading the responses to tweets @BizNasty2point0 is as pathetic as watching his last goal scored #pathetic #nooneremembers #orcares

Following the exchange @sweetheartband gained nearly 200 followers and trended briefly in Toronto. Doesn’t look like there was a clear winner in this one.
