COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) — Did they say "Nickelback" or "nickle sack?"

One is a small bag of marijuana. The other is a Canadian rock band.

Two young men were detained June 20 by Kootenai County sheriff's deputies in what could be a misunderstanding over the two words. One of the men recorded the incident, which was uploaded to YouTube.

The Coeur d'Alene Press reported that the men asked why they were detained. A deputy tells them that when the passenger got out of the vehicle, he heard him say, "Yeah, a nickel sack for sure."

"No — Nickelback," the filmer responds.

"That guy over there was blasting Nickelback," the passenger says.

Discussion between the officers and the two men continues. After five minutes, the video ends.

No charges were filed.
